Aim and scope:

Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs) are a breed of Self-Organized Networks (SONs). In addition to the inter-node communication, it assumes that nodes are connected to other smart objects equipped with a powerful multi-sensor platform, communication technologies, computation units, and IP-based connectivity to the Internet, thereby creating a network called Mobile Internet of Things (MIoT).

MIoT applications are also based on cooperation-aware communication where information is exchanged among communicating nodes. This phenomenon advocates for a content-centric communication paradigm for MIoT applications where the focus is on information itself rather than the source and/or location of information. As a result, owing to the Future Internet Architecture (FIA), content-centric networking (CCN) and named data networking (NDN) have recently been considered to be the architectural backbones for SONs and its breeds.

This Special Issue is soliciting original technical papers addressing the main research challenges in the Mobile Internet of Things and its applications over Future Internet Architectures.


  • ICN-based Wireless Networking and Internet of Things
  • Mobile Named Data Networking
  • Vehicular, Flying, and Underwater Named Data Networking
  • Mobile networks communication architectures and algorithms over ICN.
  • Security, privacy, and trust in Mobile Networks over ICN.
  • ICN-Enabled 5G-IoT.
  • ICN for delay tolerant and opportunistic networks.
  • Cross-layer protocol design
  • Multimedia communications in Mobile Networks over ICN.
  • Performance, scalability, reliability and efficiency of Mobile Networks communications over ICN.
  • Caching and Forwarding Issues in Mobile Information Centric Networks.
  • Testbeds and validation.


Submission instructions:

Elsevier Computer Communications submission system will be open for submissions to our Special Issue from 01 04 2019. When submitting your manuscript please select the article type “VSI: Mobile ICN”. Please submit your manuscript before 01 10 2019.

All submissions deemed suitable to be sent for peer review will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Once your manuscript is accepted, it will go into production, and will be simultaneously published in the current regular issue and pulled into the online Special Issue. Articles from this Special Issue will appear in different regular issues of the journal, though they will be clearly marked and branded as Special Issue articles.
