Ultra-Reliable-and-Available Low-Latency Communications for 5G/B5G-enabled IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) provides continuous connectivity for various physical objects (e.g., sensors, mobile phones, vehicles, RFID tags, other electronic embedded devices, etc.) as well as humans by allowing them to communicate and exchange data. IoT encompass a massive number of low-cost and low-power devices that must transmit a diverse set of messages observed from their environment in a reliable and available way to deliver a plethora of smart applications. Moreover, one of the critical missions of IoT is envisioned to enable real-time control and automation of dynamic processes in various fields (e.g., industrial process automation and manufacturing, energy distribution, intelligent transport systems, etc.). This mission requires communications with very high reliability and availability, as well as very low end-to-end latency at the millisecond level.

This special issue intends to bring together the leading researchers and developers from both academia and industry to present their latest research and innovation on ultra-reliable-and-available, low-latency (URALL) communications for 5G/B5G-enabled IoT. All submissions should neither have been published previously nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The submitted papers will undergo a strict peer review process based on originality, quality, and relevance to this special issue and the journal.
