About the Journal

Aims and Scope

The application of mobile technologies in communication systems could be tracked back into the 1980s. The emergence of cognitive radio targeted on the revolutionary spectrum access paradigm has sparked a radical change in wireless mobile system design, development, and performance analysis. Since then, state-of-the-art of wireless communications has been significantly advanced, from a substantial improvement in spectrum usage, smart adaptation, and coexistence in radio and network environments, fundamental enhancement in performance and capacity, to a considerable reduction of complexity in mobile network management. This trend will strengthen even more with the advent of fifth-generation (5G) communication networks that will impose new challenges, related mainly to the heterogeneity of such networks, the improvement of the quality of experience of users, and the efficient and sustainable use of network resources. Solutions for energy-efficient, sustainable future Internet are heavily relied on advanced technologies, new ways of thinking on network design and development, as well as new theoretic foundations. Mobile communication ecosystems need to be equipped with advanced intelligence coming from machine learning, data analytics, and cognitive computing to meet the challenges. We believe mobile communications will remain an important and active area of research for the next several decades. It becomes necessary to provide a common forum to publish high-quality papers, and to offer readers a single source to get inspiring ideas and important findings in this area.
