Special Session on Emerging Technologies for 6G Wireless Communication Systems

All new fifth-generation (5G) mobile technology is expected to be operational by 2020, both industry and academia have started to look beyond the 5G, with the aim to increase the networks’ capabilities to serve a massive amount of diversified mobile applications, especially those supported by artificial intelligence, such as intelligent industry and self-driving vehicles. The performance of such application depends on the trade-off among computational accuracy, latency, and efficient use of available resources.

In March of 2019, a global 6G Summit event was held in Finland, where the event strives to initiate the process of establishing and agreeing upon a global 6G standard for the technology even at this early stage. There are four research areas in 6G, wireless connectivity, devices and circuit technology, distributed computing, and services and applications.

This special issue encourages high quality papers that advance the state-of-the-art and practical applications of future 6G technologies. This feature topic will bring together academic and industrial researchers to identify and discuss the major opportunities and challenges in applying 6G technologies to the understanding and designing of modern network systems. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

 

Communication Topics of Interests:

  • Terahertz communications and sensing
  • Mobile edge networking and computing
  • Massive millimeter wave (mmWave) technologies
  • Terahertz (THz) and quantum nanodevices and circuits
  • 6G testbeds and applications such as robotics, UAVs, autonomous vehicles
  • New security concepts / New network architectures
  • Joint communication, computing, and storage resources allocation
  • Artificial intelligence for the convergence of communications, storage, and computing resources
  • Distributed artificial intelligence and federated learning in wireless networks
  • Wireless data offloading and caching
  • Energy efficient scheduling for Internet-of-Things applications
  • Low-latency in wireless networked control systems
  • Multiple access protocols in systems with distributed computing resources
