Call for Papers: Special Issue on 5G/6G Beyond Networks for Smart Manufacturing Industry

There is no doubt that the whole world is currently experiencing a crisis with a global pandemic that is altering the daily lives of human beings in the way of business conducted. Since everything became a social distancing concept, within a short span of time many individuals, industries, SMART (self-monitoring, analyzing and reporting technologies) manufacturing industries and even instructions have come to a situation to rely on telecommunication. Transforming the fourth industrial revolution to the fifth has become one of the fast pieces of innovation and also a mandatory thing to have high network connectivity i.e., 5G/6G. 5G/6G the prime technologies have many standards to facilitate smart manufacturing on a global scale.

The following topics are of special interest:

  • Cloud Computing enabled Smart Manufacturing Analysis Systems
  • Big Data Analytics in Manufacturing Design Applications
  • Testing Designs and Models of Automations in the Smart Manufacturing Industries
  • 5G/6G Network Design to Develop Smart Factories for Better Connectivity
  • Edge Computing for Smart Industrial Design and Development
  • Integrating Soft Computing for Next Generation 5G/6G Network Systems
  • An Evolutionary Design for B5G Network Developments and Applications
  • Integrating Smart Manufacturing Systems and Computing Designs 
  • Evolving Network Designs for Futuristic Manufacturing Applications
  • Production optimization Design by enabling 5G Network Systems
  • 5G technologies to Enhance Human Manufacturing Model Designs
  • Acceleration of Smart Computing Models to Reduce Energy and Maintenance Costs
