    Call for Papers

Modern society has been widely benefiting from the advances in wireless technology. During the past decade, extensive research efforts have been dedicated to develop the fifth-generation (5G) wireless mobile networks. This resulted in enabling technologies for the three generic connectivity types in 5G (broadband, massive Internet-of-things connectivity and ultra-reliable low latency communication) as well as their coexistence. The final look of what will be called 5G is decided by the standardization process and it will not necessarily match the original ambitious vision of 5G. Due to this, as well as the extended time that will be required to deploy 5G ubiquitously, there are already initiatives to carry out research on 6G wireless networks. Those would have to respond to the exponential growth of mobile traffic due to AR/VR, holographic communications, V2X, autonomous driving, networked intelligence, and other, yet unknown use cases of Internet-of-Everything (IoE). These demanding use cases call for revolutionary design and novel enabling technologies on spectrum-, energy-, and cost-efficient communications for the sixth-generation (6G) mobile networks. This special issue provides a unique opportunity to discuss the visions, key drivers, and use cases for 6G, novel physical-layer solutions, network architectures, resource allocation schemes, and their integrations with advanced enabling technologies, primarily machine learning and artificial intelligence.

This feature topic “6G Mobile Networks: Emerging Technologies and Applications” invites submissions of high-quality original research papers in this dynamic and fast-growing field. Potential topics of interest include, but are not limited to areas listed above.
Papers should be submitted in two separate .doc files (preferred) or .pdf files: 1) Main Document (including paper title, abstract, key words, and full text); 2) Title page (including paper title, author affiliation, acknowledgement and any other information related with the authors’ identification) through the Manuscript Central. Please register or loginat http://cn03.manuscriptcentral.com/chinacomm, then go to the author center and follow the instructions there. Remember to select “6G Mobile Networks: Emerging Technologies and Applications–April Issue, 2020” as your manuscript type when submitting; otherwise, it might be considered as a regular paper. 
Each submission must be accompanied by the following information:
● an abstract of about 150 words
● 3-8 keywords
● original photographs with high-resolution (300 dpi or greater); eps. or tif. format is preferred
● sequentially numbered references. The basic reference format is: author name, "article name", issue name(italic), vol, no., page, month, year. for example: Y.M Huang, "pervateture in wireless hetergeneous..",IEEE Journal on Selected Areas, vol.27, no. 5, pp 34-50, May, 2009.
● brief biographies of authors (50-75 words)
● contact information, including email and mailing addresses
Please note that each submission will normally be approximately 4500 words, with no more than 20 mathematical formulas, accomplished by up to 10 figures and/or tables.
