Submission Deadline: 28 February 2018
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Addressing Economic, Environmental and Humanitarian Challenges in the Polar Regions.
The polar regions are experiencing significant changes, likely to be attributed to the human impact, that will dramatically change our perception of these regions, and how communications, transportation, oil exploration, fishing, etc., are performed going forward. At the same time, these changes may have environmental and health affects of unforeseen consequences.
In order to sustain these activities and be prepared for these potential threats, new remote and in situ sensors will be playing a key role to provide continuous (ideally near-real time) data to decision makers and for ship routing, while new communications and transportation systems will have to be developed to deliver food and medicines to remote rural areas.
This Special Section in IEEE Access welcomes contributions from a wide range of topics dealing with the emerging challenges in polar regions. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
