Graph theory has been extensively implemented and used to model and analyse the relationships in scientific, information and modern technical systems. In many applications in digital communications and information theory, graph theory has become a very interesting modelling and analytical tool due to the simplicity in the geometric structures of a graph which is made up of vertices and lines and regarded as an abstract notion of a set of nodes and connection relations between them. This simplify in the graphs structures helped researchers in solving scheduling problems or finding approximate solutions in both theory and applications.
This Special Issue on “Graphs for Smart Communications Systems”, presents the application of graph theory in many modern communication systems. Two major themes are presented: Graph theoretic approach data communications and Graph theoretic approach for communications networks. In the first theme we will look at the contribution of graphs in the information theory, big data, network coding and error correcting codes. Whereas in the second theme, graphs will play a role in the wireless sensor networks, mobile networks, internet of things (IoT) and smart grid. Both comprehensive surveys and original technical contributions are welcome.

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 1000 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.
