We are organizing a Special Issue entitled "Applications in Opportunistic Networking" in the journal Information (ISSN 2078-2489, https://www.mdpi.com/journal/information). We think you could make an excellent contribution and we would like to invite you to contribute a paper.
In opportunistic networking, messages are sent to nodes using a direct communication range, which store and carry these messages until there is a new opportunity to forward the messages to other nodes. In the last decade, the scientific community has proven that this paradigm is an excellent alternative to infrastructure-based networks for a different number of scenarios, including sensor networks, the Internet of things, interplanetary networks, submarine networks, or networks where nodes need to maintain the privacy of their whereabouts or the anonymity of their users.
The objective of this Special Issue is to capture the latest advances in this research field. Topics of interest for publication in this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:
- New applications and scenarios for opportunistic networking
- Performance evaluation of opportunistic networking
- Intelligent routing and delivery protocols for opportunistic routing
- Privacy-preserving opportunistic networking routing mechanisms
- Efficient broadcasting
- New delivery mechanisms in opportunistic networking
- New applications in opportunistic mobile social networks
- Security, privacy and trust in opportunistic networking
If this topic is of interest, you may send your manuscript now or up until the deadline (30 November 2019). Submitted papers should not be under consideration for publication elsewhere.

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 1400 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.
