PAINLESS PIs Dr. Christos Masouros and Dr. Constantinos Papadias are leading a Special Issue on Aerial Wireless Networks on the IEEE Open Journal of the Communications Society.

This special issue seeks contributions of fundamental nature that assess the challenge of optimal design of the physical and media access control layers, the characterization of the communication media, the study of channel capacity and energy efficiency, the development of routing and self-organization mechanisms in both drone-assisted networks and in networks for drones. In addition, contributions related to novel radio localization techniques in support of drone navigation, as well as drone-assisted radio positioning solutions, are encouraged.

Call for papers is now open. For more information, visit the official website.
