Elsevier PHYCOM S.I. on D2D-based Offloading Techniques
Scope of the Special Issue
The Device-to-Device (D2D) communication paradigm was first proposed for cellular relaying, although it has been later proposed for a large variety of applications, such as opportunistic routing, peer-to-peer, content distribution, and cellular offloading. Indeed, the recent emergence of the D2D paradigm paves the way towards improving the performance of cellular networks by means of novel opportunistic architectures, e.g, based on LTE-Direct and WiFi-Direct technologies.
This special issue will focus on theoretical research contributions presenting new techniques, concepts or analyses, and applied contributions reporting on experiences and experiments with D2D-based offloading systems. In particular, within the general framework of D2D communications and cellular offloading, we solicit manuscripts that present original and previously unpublished work on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
Opportunistic medium access;
Security and privacy;
Coding and decoding methods;
MAC protocol coexistence;
Content distribution architectures.

Submission Format and Guideline
All submitted papers must be clearly written in excellent English and contain only original work, which has not been published by or is currently under review for any other journal or conference. Papers must not exceed 25 pages (one-column, at least 11pt fonts) including figures, tables, and references. A detailed submission guideline is available as “Guide to Authors” at: http://www.elsevier.com/journals/physical-communication/1874-4907/guide-for-authors
All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted through Elsevier Editorial System (EES). The authors must select as “D2D OFFLOADING” when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. The EES website is located at: http://ees.elsevier.com/phycom
All papers will be peer-reviewed by three independent reviewers. Requests for additional information should be addressed to the guest editors.
