Call for papers: Integrated Space-Ground-Sea Wireless Networks for B5G

Next-generation cellular networks are expected to provide anywhere and anytime communication services to different application users, such as traditional voice/video, smart city, automotive car or ship, unmanned aerial vehicle, marine monitoring, IoT and intelligent industry. The integration of space-ground-sea networks is a promising solution to achieve this goal. The integrated networks can solve coverage constraint of B5G communications to maritime applications and provide seamless global coverage. In addition, it can satisfy booming traffics and links brought by emerging different kinds of applications. Recently related works have just been launched with numerous challenges and open issues. 

This special issue aims to gather latest research and development achievements in this area and to promote their applications in all important fields with society needs.

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

  • Network architecture design for integrated networks
  • Resource management for different kinds of applications
  • Network access protocols for different kinds of applications
  • Signal processing algorithms on coverage enlarging and routing protocols
  • Signal processing on D2D communication for integrated networks
  • Signal processing on NOMA for integrated networks
  • Performance analysis and simulations for integrated networks
  • Security defense technology for integrated networks
  • Signal processing on satellite communications for IoT in B5G
  • Signal processing on intra-satellite communications for integrated networks
  • Signal processing on integrate network techniques for maritime applications
  • High altitude platform techniques for integrated networks
  • Signal processing on microscale communications in integrated networks
  • Signal processing on ultra-high speed optical fiber communication technology
  • Signal processing in Cloud computing and edge computing for integrated networks
  • Signal processing on MIMO for integrated networks in B5G
  • Signal processing on vehicular communication network for integrated networks
