Special Issue "AI-Enabled Cognitive Radio Networks"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 November 2020).
Interests: wireless access networks; 5G; dynamic spectrum access; artificial intelligence; radio resource management; opportunistic spectrum access; sensor wireless networks; wireless communications protocols; low-power wide-area networks; IoT.
The unprecedented surge in data traffic experienced over the last decade has stretched the telecommunications wireless networks to their capacity, and, thus, making more efficient ways of spectrum utilization increasingly necessary. In this context, cognitive radio (CR) technologies have attracted the interest of the research community over the last years, as an enabler for dynamic spectrum access.
Recently, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies in communications networks has revolutionized how networks are managed. The adoption of AI promises self-adaptive and reconfigurable networks able to provide reliability, energy and spectrum efficiency, etc. Based on its potential, AI is expected to be a cornerstone of future cognitive radio and spectrum sharing solutions.
This Special Issue targets novel research contributions on AI-Enabled Cognitive Radio Networks. Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Challenges and issues in designing AI-enabled cognitive radio networks and communications
- Cross-layer design and optimization of AI-enabled cognitive radio networks
- Machine learning, deep learning or (Deep) reinforcement learning algorithms for spectrum access
- Traffic and/or interference prediction for spectrum sharing
- AI-based algorithms to improve wireless communications systems coexistence
- Novel spectrum sensing algorithms
- Quality of service in AI-enabled cognitive radio networks

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
