Interests: reconfigurable, autonomous and flexible antennas and antenna arrays; satellite antennas and reflectarrays; 5G; microwave circuits; wireless power transfer; organic electronics; packaging; direct-write; MEMS; phase-change materials (VO2); electromagnetic materials; nanoantennas and plasmonics; security applications; metamaterials; reconfigurable biomedical systems employing image processing and artificial neural networks
The key enabling technologies of the future and current information society include fifth generation (5G) of cellular communications and Internet of Things (IoT). Moreover, new wireless Lan standards like IEEE 802.11ah, IEEE 802.11ad are emerging. Additionally, Radiofrequency identification (RFID) tags and Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN) play an important role in modern connected world. Antenna syntesis and design for these emerging techologies is a challenging task. We invite researchers to contribute original papers describing the design of antennas for emerging technologies of 5G, IoT RFID, WLAN, and WBAN. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Antenna design for IoT
- Antenna Array design
- mmwave antenna design
- 5G/4G antenna design
- Wireless LAN antenna design
- Antenna design for WBAN
- Antenna design for RFID
- Antenna design for emerging wireless networks (vehicle to vehicle, wearable antennas, satellite networks, biomedical applications, etc.)

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
