CFP–Special Issue on Advanced Information Theory and Technologies for 6G Wireless Communications

As a vital component of the national strategic emerging industries, the innovation in information and communication technology has brought about rapid changes in social life. With modern information networks as the primary vehicle and the integration of new generation digital technologies such as artificial intelligence, big data, cloud computing, and 5G, the applications of the Internet of Things (IoT), Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X), and Industrial Internet have been accelerated, advancing the digital transformation of traditional infrastructure. In the future, to meet the secure and reliable connection needs of "people, machines, and things," the 6G technology will have higher technical demands in terms of transmission rate, transmission delay, and user access capabilities. It will also need to be endowed with capabilities such as intrinsic intelligence, multidimensional perception, and innate security. The service area may also expand from the ground to the air, space, and sea, achieving three-dimensional connection coverage. The 6G technology will face more technical explorations and breakthroughs in expanding the boundaries of mobile communication capabilities, leading the digital, intelligent, and green transformation of the economy and society, and ultimately realizing the beautiful vision of "intelligent connection of all things".

This special issue aims to consolidate and disseminate cutting-edge research on the critical technologies that will shape the future of 6G. We invite original articles that discuss the theoretical foundations, practical implementations, and innovative applications of these technologies, and that delve into breakthroughs in the fundamental principles of communication, as well as theoretical innovations in information theory, framing, and coding.
