Special Issue "Emerging Methodologies and Practical Solutions for M2M and D2D Communications in the Internet of Things Era"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2018)
Today, the Internet of Things (IoT) is at the basis of relevant services in health-care, intelligent transportation systems and logistics, energy management, military, environmental monitoring, industry and home automation, smart city, and smart agriculture application domains. In this context, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Device-to-Device (D2D) communications could already be supported by heterogeneous, short-range, and long-range wireless technologies, including Bluetooth, IEEE 802.15.4, ZigBee, WiFi-Direct, LTE-Direct, NB-IoT, LoRaWAN, and many others. However, novel methodologies, algorithms, network architecture, and communication protocols at the different levels of the stack are continuously promoted in the scientific literature for improving the performance of baseline solutions, while guaranteeing a better fulfillment of energy, security, computational, mobility, and Quality of Service requirements related to emerging IoT applications.
The Special Issue aims at fostering the dissemination of emerging methodologies and practical solutions for M2M and D2D communications in the IoT era. Specifically, it targets high-level scientific contributions that present design principles, analytical models, experimental tests, performance evaluation, and advanced prototypes of cutting-edge technologies for the IoT and advanced solutions addressing energy, security, computational, mobility, and Quality of Service constraints.Dr. Giuseppe Piro
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 1800 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.
