IEEE Communications Standards Magazine
Call For Papers
The IEEE Communications Standards Magazine aims to be a platform for presenting and discussing a broad variety of standards-related topics in the area of communications. This quarterly magazine will cover areas of communication and networking standards, as well as the role of standards in technical innovation in communications, the effect of intellectual property on communication technology standardization, and research on standardization methodologies in communications. Contributions are encouraged from areas and disciplines that impact the development, adoption, and impact of communications standards on industry and society, such as standards development processes, economics of standards, and the role of national and international policies and regulations on standardization.

Special Issue on Autonomous Networks: Opportunities, Challenges, and Applications
Submission Date: 2021-12-01

The network management automation problem in 5G systems has been gaining attention from both the standardization organizations and researchers. The current age of agile and dynamic cloud-based environment demands autonomous systems for managing network resources. The goal of operators is to optimize the network resources in order to achieve minimalism with efficiency. The autonomousity in networks is the next leap of evolution that is capable of going beyond automation capabilities. With autonomousity, it is not just making the network capable of managing resources, but rather making the network learn and adapt itself with respect to the dynamic environment. In networks, the autonomous tasks refer to self-healing, self-diagnosing, and self-provisioning. With the help of emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), and Blockchain, autonomous tasks can be realized in current network systems. We aim to bring together academic researchers, industrial practitioners, and individuals working in this emerging exciting research area to share their innovative ideas and latest findings, and identify and discuss potential use cases, open research problems, technical challenges, and solution methods in the context of standardization. This Special Issue is targeted at the above issues related to Autonomous Networks: QoS Provision and Resource Management. Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished papers to this Special Issue. Topics include, but are not limited to: - ML/DL for Autonomous Networks - SDN/Network Slicing for Autonomous Networks - Blockchain for Autonomous Networks - Edge Computing for Autonomous Networks - Big Data Analytics for Autonomous Networks - Federated Learning for Autonomous Networks - IoT for Autonomous Networks - Dynamic Resource Allocation Techniques - Quantum Computing for Autonomous Networks - Decentralized AI for Autonomous Networks - Autonomous Network architectures and protocol designs - Quality of Service (QoS) issues such as Dynamic Resource Allocation, - Spectrum Allocation, Energy Efficiency - Enabling Trust for Autonomous Networks - Futuristic paradigms for advanced use cases; adopting blockchain, quantum communication etc - Parameters like interoperability, heterogeneity, and bandwidth in congested networks - Optimization Techniques (e.g. Haris Hawk) for Autonomous Networks
