CFP - Special Issue on 6G Technologies and Applications - IEEE VT Magazine
(Impact Factor: 7.921)

5G networks have made a significant step towards developing a low latency
tactile access network and open new opportunities for innovative automation
of network resources and operations. As we progress on the deployment of
5G, work to define what 6G networks should be is under way. First ideas
were presented in the first two 6G special issues published in the IEEE
Vehicular Technology Magazine (September 2019 and December 2020, This 6G
series will lay down the concepts, basic functionalities, supported
services and break-through technologies for 6G networks. The next
generation of communications networks will resemble the nervous system
making use of new spectrum to create new smart infrastructures that feature
proactive, secure and adaptive paradigms that can be enabled by AI/ML.
Smart 6G networks should address energy efficiency in the
telecommunications’ sector and contribute to United Nations Sustainable
Development Goals and the goals of the European Green Deal, among others.
With the increase of large autonomy of systems, the protection of the
‘nervous system’ against malicious attacks becomes also important.
Moreover, the system autonomy and the large number of distributed sensor
systems demand the simultaneous integration of distributed policies and new
energy harvesting concepts. The move to machine-type communication demands
radically separation of service processing and probably higher strict KPIs.
These technologies and challenges will be considered within the context of
6G networks. This series is sponsored by the IEEE Future Networks
initiative and is aimed at helping the research and industrial communities
define and shape the architecture, technologies and services for 6G
networks. We are soliciting original contributions that have not been
published and are not currently under consideration by any other
publications or conferences.

Submission deadline: April 5th, 2021

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

- 6G Dimensions and KPI requirements
- Methods and technologies to harness new spectrum
- AI/ML assisted PHY and networking
- MU-MIMO and new antenna technologies
- New medium access technologies
- 6G networks and solutions including 6G-U and private networks
- New core network entities and interfaces
- Network assurance and service provisioning
- AI/ML for 6G network management
- Cloudification, big data, orchestration, multi-access edge computing and
- Cyber security and encrypted connectivity
- Wireless Networking using the optical spectrum – LiFi, visible light
communications (VLC), optical camera communication (OCC) and free-space
optical (FSO) communications
- Quantum communications
- Terahertz communications
- Green 6G networks, wireless harvesting technologies and energy efficiency
- 6G satellite and UAV networks
- 6G-enabled vertical applications and services

Submissions should clearly identify how they relate to 6G and how they
would progress beyond current 5G technologies. Submitted papers should
contain state-of-the-art research or technical material presented in a
tutorial or survey style. All manuscripts must adhere to the IEEE VTM
guidelines at Authors
should submit a PDF version of their manuscript to (select Special Issue
