*Special Issue on Digital Twin for Future Networks and Emerging IoT

*Motivation and Scope*

The forthcoming 5G networks are expected to bring instantaneous
connectivity to billions of IoT devices that enable the digital
transformation of industry 4.0 for companies, customers, and investors. It
is expected that 85 percent of IoT platforms will contain some form of
digital twinning by 2030, driving market growth projections from $3.1
billion today to a $48.2 billion increase in the next few years. Digital
twins, which are virtual representations of real-world physical entities,
have received significant interest from both the research and industrial

The concept is used nowadays in a wide variety of domains such as
manufacturing, healthcare, smart cities, smart agriculture,
telecommunication, and utilities to deliver the automation, performance,
and cognitive insight required by many industries. Typically, virtual twin
systems are generated and then synchronized using data flows in both
directions between the real-world physical components and their virtual
replica counterparts. Furthermore, a digital twin can enable continuous
prototyping and testing on-demand, without interruption, assuring and
self-optimizing the forthcoming 5G network and beyond. It creates virtual
replicas of IoT devices in various application scenarios and maintains a
device twin for every connected device.

The main goal of this Special Issue is to address the challenges of
developing digital twins in future networks and present advanced and
innovative tools, techniques, and algorithms for emerging IoT applications
and services. Contributions addressing surveys, state of the art,
theoretical and practical applications.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
