Special Issue on Communications and Computing for Sustainable Development

MDPI Future Internet (Scopus / DBLP Indexed)

CFP http://www.mdpi.com/journal/futureinternet/special_issues/

Submission Deadline 5 March 2017

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector is currently
focused on exploring different technological challenges, such us increasing
the speed, maximizing the available capacity, and, in general, improving
the performance of ICT systems. However, little attention has been paid so
far to the role of ICT towards sustainable development. For example, the
forthcoming 5G technology is mainly devoted to urban areas, while the
development of such technology in rural zones is not yet considered.
Additionally, more than two billions people still lack an Internet
connection, and relatively low number of initiatives are being put into
place to invert this trend.

This Special Issue dedicates itself to explore the role and impact of the
transformational power of ICT for making our world more sustainable: saving
energy and material resources by creating more value from less physical
input, increasing quality of life for ever more people without compromising
future generations ability to meet their needs. In this context, the United
Nations General Assembly has proposed the Sustainable Development Goals
(SDGs), a list of actions over the next fifteen years in areas of critical
importance for the humanity and the planet. The goal of the special issue
is to pursue these goals in all areas of networking and computing. Papers
related to ICT for Sustainability in a broad sense such as Sustainability
by ICT, Sustainability in ICT and their overarching aspects, and especially
papers developing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are welcome.

The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:
- 5G networks for rural zones
- Sustainable backbone networks/cellular network or data centers
- New paradigms to improve the network sustainability: softwarization and
fog computing
- Networks elements and storage units powered by renewable sources
- Sustainable architectures for increasing the connectivity in rural zones
- Sustainable drone-services and network-services
- e-Health applications for rural zones
- Emergency services in rural zones
- Case-studies results from the application of networks and services for
improving the sustainability
- Measurement of sustainability including metrics and benchmarks in
networks and computing resources

provides an advanced forum for scientific studies related to Internet
technologies and the information society. It publishes regular research
papers, reviews and short communications. The journal aim is to encourage
scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much
detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the
papers or the use of colour figures.

For Future Internet (ISSN 1999-5903), authors are asked to pay a fee of 500
CHF (Swiss Francs) per processed paper, but only if the article is accepted
for publication in this journal after peer-review and possible revision of
the manuscript. An additional fee of 250 CHF may apply for those articles
that need major editing and formatting and/or English editing. Note that
many national and private research funding organizations and universities
explicitly cover such fees for articles originated in funded research
projects. Discounts are available for authors from institutes that
participate with MDPI's membership program.

Future Internet is covered by following databases:
- Scopus (Elsevier)
- DBLP Computer Science Bibliography (Universität Trier)
- Compendex / Engineering Village (Elsevier)
