Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 5G standard has prescribed that non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is an essential enabling technology for meeting the requirement of low latency, high reliability, massive connectivity, and high throughput of 5G applications. NOMA uses the power domain to separate signals, a technique that has not been used within 2G, 3G or 4G before. The key to NOMA is to have signals that possess significant differences in power levels, and then it is possible to isolate the high level signal at the receiver and then cancel it out to leave only the low level signal. In this way, NOMA serves as a general framework that allows multiple users to coexist and share the same bandwidth/network resource. Recent studies show that NOMA can be applied in various 5G scenarios, including machine-to-machine communications and the Internet of Things.

This special issue seeks high quality peer-reviewed papers in the area of NOMA for 5G systems. The topics cover all types of non-orthogonal multiple access schemes, and both comprehensive surveys and original technical contributions are welcome.

  • Performance analysis of NOMA
  • Design and optimization of NOMA
  • MIMO techniques for NOMA
  • Cognitive networking with NOMA
  • Security in NOMA
  • Applications of NOMA
  • System, testbed of NOMA

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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 papers will be 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 850 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.
