Communications in Harsh Environments

Submission Deadline:  31 October 2020

Submission Deadline: 31 October 2020

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of Communications in Harsh Environments.

Communication systems deployed in harsh environments, such as a high-speed train, subway, desert, trench, forest, or underground mining, should be specially constructed to withstand extreme conditions such as high or low temperatures, corrosive humidity, extreme weather or excessive dust and dirt. Such applications require specially designed wireless communication, fiber-optic communications, satellite communication, or signal processing techniques that can perform under extreme conditions and meet the QoS, security, and reliability requirement.

Quite often, communications in harsh environments have extremely low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), high doppler shift, and long latency, and often consumes more power and energy. Bandwidth limitation in harsh environment requires spectrum efficient communications. The current state of art technologies such as massive MIMO, advanced modulation and channel coding, artificial intelligence, and signal processing provide different venues to explore this challenging area. The goal of the Special Section is to publish the most recent (unclassified) results of communications in harsh environments. Review articles on this topic are also welcome.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless channel modeling for communications in harsh environments
  • Signal processing techniques for communications in harsh environments
  • Massive MIMO for communications in harsh environments
  • Space-time coding for communications in harsh environments
  • Information theory foundation for communications in harsh environments
  • Fiber-optic communications in harsh environments
  • Satellite communications in harsh environments
  • Ultra-wide band communications in harsh environments
  • Spectrum efficiency for communications in harsh environments
  • Energy efficiency for communications in harsh environments
  • New modulation for communications in harsh environments
  • New multiple access techniques for communications in harsh environments
  • Channel coding for communications in harsh environments
  • Artificial intelligence for communications in harsh environments
  • Sensor communications in harsh environments

We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility and downloads of articles.
