Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Antenna design has received renewed attention in the last few years. This is thanks to an explosion of interest in a range of applications, from Internet of Things, low frequency long range applications to high-frequency mmWave 5G mobile technologies. There has also been renewed interest in wearable antennas that form body area networks. These include wearable garments as well as materials that directly attach themselves to skin such as e-skin. In addition to this, a renewed interest in space and space exploration has renewed interest in satellite technologies, such a CubeSat and Deep Space Networks. All these emerging applications bring a renewed interest in looking at special materials and new designs for antenna systems.

This Special Issue is intended to shed some light on recent advances in Antenna Design for these new emerging applications and identify further research areas in this exciting field of communications technologies.

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.
