Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of the open access journal Information is dedicated to the publication of full manuscripts of the work presented at the 1st International Electronic Conference on Information (IECI2021), to be held from December 1 to December 15, 2021. We encourage authors to submit their manuscripts, for which they will receive a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charge.

The event is intended to be a forum for scientists and researchers in the area of information systems to present their work, exchange ideas and discuss advances and future directions in the field. The conference covers a wide range of topics related to information theory and applications. These have been distributed in three areas corresponding to the three sessions of the conference:

  • Information Systems and Applications
  • Information Processes and Artificial Intelligence
  • Information Theory and Communications Technology

Authors are requested to submit original papers that represent a relevant contribution and that arouse interest among the audience of the journal Information. These papers are subject to peer review and will be published as soon as accepted, to ensure that they are shared quickly.

Dr. María N. Moreno García
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Security is one of the major issues in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs), as poor security disrupts the entire network and can have a significant effect on data transmission. WSNs need safe data transmission at a high rate while maintaining data integrity. By modifying the Z-MAC protocol and merging it with IHOP and elliptic-curve encryption techniques, the present research produced a novel protocol that enables safe data transfer. Additionally, the paper examined the IHOP technique for secure data transfer based on the Z-MAC protocol, which offers a simple and efficient key generation mechanism based on a hierarchical key management architecture. Additionally, the Z-MAC protocol offered low contention, high throughput, reduced latency, low power consumption, and increased efficiency. One of the most major applications of the Secure Z-MAC protocol may be the Vehicle Area Network, which would help in increasing highway automobile traffic while simultaneously enhancing individual safety and minimizing accidents.
