Call for Papers: Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent Communications network


As we all know, one of the basic challenges in wireless system design is to manage and allocate resources to meet the traffic demand under difficult conditions. The future network will have the ability of self-learning and self-adaptive, so as to meet the requirements of user equipment, wireless conditions and traffic characteristics generated by various applications. By learning and predicting the past behavior patterns, output results and behaviors of similar entities on the unified network or other networks, the decision quality of the network will continue to improve.

Artificial intelligence and all its derivative technologies form the key technology foundation of many advanced algorithms applied in wireless communication, and the application range is from optimization to OSI (open system interconnection) model physical layer processing. We hope that we can apply the artificial intelligence algorithm to the communication system, which can help people make more intelligent decisions in the system design, automatic operation and optimization and other core links. We invite high-quality original research papers to describe recent and anticipated challenges or discoveries, as well as potential intelligent solutions for future mobile communications and networks.

This Special Issue aims to apply AI algorithm to communication network effectively. Expected contributions call upon a wide range of novel modeling as well as algorithmic and computational frameworks related to intelligent optimization or AI algorithm. This special issue welcomes both theoretical and experimental papers. We expect the papers of the conference to serve as valuable references for a large audience from both academia and industry. Both original, unpublished contributions and survey/tutorial types of articles are encouraged.
