Interesting conference and special issue CPFs

The 18th International Conference on Wireless and Mobile Computing, Networking and Communications (WiMob 2022), October 10-12, 2022 in Thessaloniki, Greece. The papers will be included in the conference proceedings, published by IEEE CS Press (IEEE Xplore) and indexed by Scopus and Ei Compendex. The WiMob conference is an international forum for the exchange of experience and knowledge among researchers and developers concerned with wireless and mobile technology. For seventeen years, the International WiMob conference has provided unique opportunities for researchers to interact, share new results, show live demonstrations, and discuss emerging directions in - Wireless Communication, - Wireless Networking, Mobility and Nomadicity, - Ubiquitous Computing, Services and Applications, - Green and sustainable communications and network computing and - Security on Wireless and mobile Networks. WiMob 2022 is soliciting high quality technical papers addressing research challenges in the areas of wireless communications, wireless networking, mobility, nomadicity, ubiquitous computing, services and applications. Papers should present original work validated via analysis, simulation or experimentation. Practical experiences and Testbed trials also are welcome. WiMob 2022 will host FIVE parallel symposia: 1. Wireless Communications (WC) 2. Wireless Networking, Mobility and Nomadicity (WNMN) 3. Ubiquitous Computing, Services and Applications (UCSA) 4. Green and Sustainable Communications and Network computing (GSCN) 5. Security on Wireless and Mobile Networks (SWMN) For the detailed topics, you can refer to WiMob 2022 web site ( Important Dates - Submissions Date: May 26, 2022 - Notifications Date: July 30, 2022 - Camera ready Date: September 15, 2022 - Registrations for authors: September 15, 2022 INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSION Authors are required to submit fully formatted, original papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for the final publication. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (two-column, 10 pt font, etc., including figures, tables, and references). The review submissions are limited to six pages, with two additional pages for final papers (additional charges may apply for additional pages). Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference by one of the co-authors or a third party, otherwise it will not be indexed and archived through IEEE Xplore. Only timely submissions through EDAS will be accepted.

This is a special issue of Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292). During the last decade, 5G technology has been developed and successfully commercialized for mobile communication networks. 5G technology supports enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) communication, massive machine type communications (mMTC) for Internet of Things (IoT), devices and ultra-reliable low-latency communication (URLLC) for mission-critical devices with IMT-2020 standard aims. Some key technologies, such as 5G numerology with new radio (NR) waveform in sub- or above 6 GHz (mmWave) bands and MIMO with beamforming, allow those heterogeneous devices or services to overcome their own challenging scenarios. Still, 5G access technology has further challenges, as it is now evolving with convergence technologies, such as autonomously driven vehicles, smart factories, satellite or UAS, public safety, etc. This 5G+ demands more bandwidth, connectivity, and reliability. Wireless communications in the Terahertz (THz) frequency band and unlicensed bands such as private 5G are considered to provide ultra-high user data rates. Further, nonorthogonal multiple access (NOMA) schemes have been explored for spectral efficiency and massive connectivity. V2X communication using mmWave side-links is not under-standardized. 5G and 6G now consider interoperation of GEO or LEO satellites and UAS to control autonomous vehicles, including drones, and provide wide-area cells for public safety or content broadcast. This nationwide cell can improve reliability and service continuity. As 5G+ pursues more than low-latency end-to-end access delay (<1 ms), mobile edge computing (MEC) has received attention in terms of supporting the requirements of network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) to improve performance. This Special Issue will present the most recent advances with respect to the theoretical foundations and practical implementation of 5G access communication and its evolution.
