The IEEE Future Networks Initiative Web Portal ( is home to IEEE Future Networks Tech Focus.

Future Networks (enabling 5G and beyond) are the next generation wireless systems that are expected to enhance the quality of life and the mobile experience through significantly increasing data speeds, producing ultra-low latency times, supporting the connection of many more devices, and increasing energy efficiency of the network elements. It is obvious that for these networks to be successfully implemented there will need significant contributions and innovations from many technology communities. Whether it be creating the appropriate terrestrial or satellite-based transport infrastructure with the necessary high capacity, developing the relevant x-hauling architectures, designing, efficient accurate sensor technology or developing efficient 1000 element MIMO platforms. There is no doubt many advances in multiple technologies will play an important role in creating these future networks.

The objective of the IEEE Future Networks Tech Focus is to provide readers practical and timely technical information and forward-looking commentary on technology, developments and deployments of current and future generations of networking around the world. Due to the many diverse technical societies involved with the IEEE Future Networks (see ), the articles tend to be more practical (almost tutorial) rather than highly technical in nature – not journal papers – to keep the community up to date on next generation networking issues and developments around the world. The guidelines for articles can be found here: .

IEEE Future Networks Tech Focus publishes articles of 1000-2000 words authored by a mix of IEEE and non-IEEE members. When you offer or accept an invitation to submit an article, please provide your IEEE affiliation. Please also provide 1-2 images or drawings to help illustrate your article.
Submitted articles are edited and reviewed before being assigned to a specific issue. Final articles, revised if necessary to accommodate reviewers’ comments, should be submitted with a bio and headshot photograph of all authors. Articles are accepted on a rolling basis and will be assigned a particular deadline and issue by the Managing Editor.

IEEE Future Networks Tech Focus articles are practical rather than highly technical in nature – not journal papers – to keep the community up to date on next generation networking issues and developments around the world.

The articles should be approximately 1000-2000 words in length. We strongly recommend authors use the template provided below where important information such as a title, author names and affiliations and an abstract of 50 to 100 words, should be included.

Please make sure your opening paragraphs communicate your main message, and convey why that message is relevant or important for readers to appreciate right now.

Potential elements of Tech Focus articles include but are not limited to the following:
- Statement of the challenge/opportunity: gaps, opportunities, and drivers
- Technological innovation/advances with some good simple illustrations. What is the state-of- the-art? What are emerging or pivotal? Why is this novel and important?
- Why is this important and high in potential (alignment/fit with 5G and future networks research and development)?
- Process/how to get it deployed/implemented
- Anticipated costs/risks and benefits/impacts

This is a general call for contributions to the IEEE Future Networks Tech Focus. After reading the guidelines, please submit your contributions through the following EDAS portal where the appropriate editors will assign the papers for review.
