Aims & Scope:

The fifth generation (5G) wireless communication networks are actively being developed and will be rolled out around 2020, after which we are going to enter the beyond 5G (B5G) wireless communications era. With respect to the development law of wireless communication traffic “1000 times in 10 years”, B5G wireless communication networks should achieve greater system capacity (> 1000 times) in terms of data rate (terabits per second) and user density (the internet of things). Yet, they are also expected to provide lower latency, high reliability, better security and more intelligence, etc.. To achieve these requirements, we cannot only rely on a simple technology; in fact, we need to integrate multiple key technologies that include extreme densification of infrastructure, large quantities of new bandwidth, and a larger number of antennas, etc., just tp mention a few. This renders traditional signal processing and methods not applicable for B5G communication networks. Therefore, there is great immediacy to develop advanced signal processing techniques, methods and algorithms to characterize the performance of B5G networks. Moreover, faced with the coming B5G era, the intelligence applications, such as autonomous driving, smart cities and telehealth, that require lower latency and high reliability should be also fully explored, The objective of this special issue is to solicit relevant contributions from both academia and industry, to motivate discussions on advanced signal processing theories and methods for B5G wireless communication networks, which span array signal processing, wireless signal transmission, information processing, practical applications and realistic scenarios, etc.. Both theoretical contributions and application validations are welcomed.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

l New architectures for B5G communication with ASP
