Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

“There's Plenty of Room at the Bottom”—R. Feynman

With the advent of breakthroughs in nanotechnology and nanomaterials, we now have access to micro/nano nodes that are performing simple tasks in many fields and applications. However, a single node working independently is generally not adequate for high-impact applications of nanotechnology. Instead, these applications necessitate large group of nodes working in concert. Therefore, a demand for communication between micro/nano nodes at small scales become imperative to fully achieve the potential of nanotechnology.

Most of the high-impact applications regarding micro/nano nodes are healthcare applications (such as targeted drug delivery and cancer cell detection/localization) and environmental sensing applications. Most of these applications require nodes and communication systems that can work inside living tissues (i.e., in vivo) and focus on overcoming the hurdles of the communication environment. A prevalent communication approach for these environments is molecular communication, which focuses on solutions inspired by existing communication systems in nature.

Although considerable research has been performed on this topic in the recent years, challenges still exist, both from theoretical and practical aspects. The aim of this Special Issue is to address these challenges and open issues with original and unpublished scientific articles to pave the way for effective implementations and high-impact applications.

Topics of interest in the Special Issue include (but are not limited to):

Channel modeling in various environments
Mathematical modeling of molecular channel with memory
System and architectural designs
Transmitter and receiver (e.g., receptor) design
Modulation and coding techniques
Multiple transmitter and receiver systems
Enhancements for interference mitigation
Testbed and simulation design
Applications for in vivo and in vitro environments
Energy models and energy efficiency
Machine learning techniques
Internet of Nano-things

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Keywords: Molecular communication, Diffusion, Nanonetworking, Internet of Nano-things
