Special Issue on “Enabling Nano-Networking via Molecular Communications for Transactions for Transactions on Emerging Telecommunications Technologies (Wiley)
Call for Papers (Extended Paper Submission Deadline: June 20, 2016)
Molecular communications has been heralded as a new and promising nanoscale communication paradigm that bolsters effective and efficient information sharing between nano-machines in fluid environments. The basic principle of conveying information in this paradigm is that transmitter nano-machines encode the information into molecules and release them into the medium. Then the information-carrying molecules propagate until they arrive at and are detected by receiver nano-machines. Due to its potential biocompatibility and low energy consumption, molecular communications is an ideal choice for the health-, industry- and environment-related applications of nano-networks, especially for those where the use of conventional electromagnetic communications is inefficient and impractical. Some envisaged applications are drug delivery systems, bio-hybrid implants, and lab-on-a-chip systems.
The aim of this special issue is to publish high-quality overview, tutorial, and technical articles on molecular communications, with a special emphasis on the new theories, designs and analysis of molecular communication systems that are developed from the perspective of signal processing and communications theory. The proposed special issue gathers state-of-the-art contributions that can provide a timely and comprehensive overview of the current research and development of molecular communications, as well as the challenges and opportunities for the practical implementation of molecular communications in current and future nano-networks.
