Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The continuous growth and demand for connectivity from pervasively distributed devices requires the adoption of heterogeneous and capillary networks with ubiquitous coverage. In addition, modern Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence techniques applied to the Internet of Things require not only communication requirements but also pervasive computational capacity. Space information networks are networks that integrate several radio segments, including GEO, MEO, LEO, and vLEO satellites, airships, high altitude platforms, and unmanned aerial vehicles and can scale in terms of communication and computing power. The integration of both terrestrial and space-based sensing and communication systems offers an invaluable resource for remote sensing applications but require careful analysis of the challenges and problems arising from the combination of such heterogeneous systems.

This Special Issue welcomes papers in the field of Multiple-access Edge Computing, Internet of Things, and Space Information Networks dealing with new developments in theory, analysis, simulation and modeling, experimentation, demonstration, case studies, field operational tests and deployments.

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. Remote Sensing is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
