Submission Deadline: 1 December 2017
IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Recent Advances on Radio Access and Security Methods in 5G Networks.
5G wireless access solutions will include an evolution of LTE-Advanced in combination with new Radio Access Technologies (RATs). Currently there are no detailed specification of the new 5G RAT by the 3GPP at the time of this Special Section’s call for papers, there is inherent uncertainty about its nature. 5G is envisioned to support a wide range of different applications, many of which are yet unknown or unexplored. Therefore, the radio access solutions should be able to evolve and adapt to encompass new requirements and new service characteristics.
At the same time, 5G will be a cornerstone for connectivity in the upcoming applications made possible by the progressive implementations of Internet of Things, as well as Smart Cities concepts, in order to pave the way to the so-called Networked Society. For these reasons, security and privacy represent two demanding aspects in 5G solutions in order to become the platform regarding to the future above-mentioned networked infrastructures for public communication and human empowerment. Specifically, 5G will have to face new requirements in terms of security and privacy imposed by the upcoming applications, which some novel threats and increasing privacy problems have to be solved.
This Special Section in IEEE Access aims to bring together researchers to report recent advances in radio access and security for 5G networks, exchange new ideas with innovative technologies and solutions towards IMT-2020. The Special Section will include the collections of outstanding technical surveys and new research results, while covering a wide range of topics within the scope of the special section.
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers in any of, but not limited to, the following topics of interest:
We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
