Aims & Scope

The application of mobile technologies in communication systems could be tracked back into 1980s. The emerging of cognitive radio targeted on the revolutionary spectrum access paradigm has sparked a radical change on wireless mobile system design, development, and performance analysis. Since then, the state-of-the art of wireless communications has been significantly advanced, from substantial improvement on spectrum usage, smart adaptation and coexistence in radio and network environments, fundamental enhancement on performance and capacity, to considerable reduction of complexity in mobile network management. This trend will strengthen even more with the advent of fifth generation (5G) communication networks that will impose new challenges, related mainly to the heterogeneity of such networks, the improvement of the quality of experience of users, and the efficient and sustainable use of network resources. Solutions for energy efficient, sustainable future Internet are heavily relied on advanced technologies, new ways of thinking on network design and development, as well as new theoretic foundations. Mobile communication ecosystems need to be equipped with advanced intelligence coming from machine learning, data analytics, and cognitive computing to meet the challenges. We believe mobile communications will remain an important and active area of research for the next several decades. It becomes necessary to provide a common forum to publish high quality papers, and to offer readers a single source to get inspiring ideas and important findings in this area.

To fulfill this purpose, it is our honor to provide the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Mobile Communications and Applications. This journal is an open access, peer-reviewed scholarly archival journal that is committed to the timely publication of high-quality original research papers on all aspects of mobile communications theories, technologies, systems, and applications. All submissions will go through a rigorous peer-review process and be reviewed by expert referees and evaluated by the editorial board. The aims of the transactions are:

  • to provide a dedicated platform for timely publishing of high quality, peer-reviewed, original papers in fields of mobile communications.
  • to be a leading journal that publish contributions from a wide range of cross-disciplinary and collaborative domain knowledge related to mobile technologies, theories, systems, and applications, such as information science, computer science, mathematics, and physics.

The Transactions provide flexible means to publish latest results in a timely manner. It accepts the submission of:
