Special Issue "Machine Learning for 5G Communications and Beyond"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 November 2018
Machine learning has recently gained importance due to the increased availability of data and computing power. Its application to mobile and wireless communication technologies is in an infant state; however, it is generally agreed that machine learning will be a key element to enable new applications and to increase efficiency. In fact, for 5G and beyond, machine learning is considered of paramount importance to provide low latency and high reliability. In addition, network operators expect great benefits from machine learning with regard to the design, control and optimization of networks. To get the most of machine learning, wireless networks will undergo many changes in its architecture, protocol stacks, data formats, etc. We invite researchers to contribute original papers describing the application and impact of machine learning in 5G communications and beyond. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Machine learning in radio interface protocols
Machine learning for network operation and management
Machine learning in software defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV)
Machine learning for spectrum management
Machine learning for resource allocation
Machine learning for Massive MIMO
Machine learning for green communications
Machine learning for prediction of subscriber behavior
Machine learning and self-organizing networks (SON)
Machine learning for Internet of things (IoT)
Machine learning for vehicular communications

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.
