Wireless Personal Communications




Increasining, electronic health (e-health) are becoming a norm in our society, and the volume, variety, velocity and veracity of healthcare data are also increasing. Due to the nature of the healthcare data (e.g. patient’s medical history and diagnosis), e-health network reliability and security are crucial. While e-health network reliability and security have been the focus of research in recent years, many open research issues remain, particularly as technologies advance. For example, traditional security strategies may not have kept pace with advances in e-health technologies and societial requirements (e.g. increasing privacy regulations). Thus, the objective of this special issue is to present state-of-the-art advances and research opportunities on the topics of e-health network reliability and security.
Original unpublished contributions, and not currently under review to another journal or conference, are solicited in relevant areas including, but not limited to, the following:
- Key Infection, Secrecy Transfer, and Key Evolution for E-health Networks
- Key Distribution, Key Management, and Key Agreement for E-health Networks
- Multimedia Information Hiding and Identification over E-health Networks
- Information Hiding based on Healthcare Data
- Anti-Collusion Fingerprinting for E-health Networks
- Anti-Collusion Codes and Detection Methods over E-health Networks
- Healthcare Data Security and Privacy
- System and Computing Security over E-health Networks
- Reliability and Security Routing Protocols for E-health Networks
- Information and Network Security in Big Data and Cloud Computing
- Blockchain Technologies for Securing E-health Networks
Important Dates:
l Manuscript Submission Deadline: December 15, 2018
l Notification of Acceptance/Revision/Rejection: May 15, 2019
l Revised Paper Submission: June 15, 2019
l Final Decision Notification: July 15, 2019
l Final Paper Submission: August 15, 2019
l Publication of Special Issue (Tentative): October 2019
Submission Procedure:
Guidelines for preparation of the manuscripts are provided at the Wireless Personal Communications journal website, http://www.springer.com/11277. All papers will be rigorously reviewed by at least three international researchers. Papers presented in conferences should be substantially enhanced for consideration (more than 50% new contents) and should be declared at the time of submission.
The conference version also must be attached along with the main manuscript. All manuscripts should include a cover letter containing a clear indication that the submission is for the Special Issue on RELIABLE AND SECURE E-HEALTH NETWORKS.

    Wireless Personal Communications is an archival, peer reviewed, scientific and technical journal addressing mobile communications and computing. It investigates theoretical, engineering, and experimental aspects of radio communications, voice, data, images, and multimedia. A partial list of topics included in the journal is: propagation, system models, speech and image coding, multiple access techniques, protocols performance evaluation, radio local area networks, and networking and architectures.

    In addition to the above mentioned areas, the journal also accepts papers that deal with interdisciplinary aspects of wireless communications along with: big data and analytics, business and economy, society, and the environment.

    The journal features five principal types of papers: full technical papers, short papers, technical aspects of policy and standardization, letters offering new research thoughts and experimental ideas, and invited papers on important and emerging topics authored by renowned experts.
