Emerging network and communication technologies have changed the way in which these are being integrated into social, industrial, and business frameworks. This has made it evident that there are a number of related technical and socioeconomic areas that need further investigation. Recently, a number of emerging technologies such as cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoTs), smart grid computing, green computing, and fog computing etc. have been proposed in communication and networking. The research on emerging communication and networking technologies is thus considered to be a global research challenge.

This special issue focuses on advanced topics in communications and networking. The main aim of this special issue is to cover both the theory of communication and network technologies and their applications in several diversified fields. It aims to provide an intellectual forum for researchers in academia, engineers and practitioners from a wide range of application areas to enable them to present their latest research findings in the areas of communication, networking and other related areas and to identify future challenges in these areas.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Advanced Computing and Intelligent Engineering (ICACIE-2016), but we also strongly encourage authors unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
