Call For Papers
China Communications is a technical journal published by China Institute of Communications with the objective of providing a global academic exchange platform involved in information and communications technologies (ICTs) sector.

China Communications is open to the whole world with the purpose of achieving an open forum for discussing and sharing information on communications to contribute to the communications industry both in China and the world.

China Communications has been included in the THOMSON REUTERS MASTER JOURNAL LIST (formerly known as ISI "Philadelfia List"), namely SCIE (Science Citation Index-Expanded) index since January, 2007. It has also been included in Scopus database since January 2009.

At the same time, China Institute of Communications has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), aiming at publishing high-quality papers in China Communications to promote worldwide exchange in the ICTs field.

China Communications targets at being the most influential periodical on ICTs and providing instant access to the latest articles and papers for enterprises, research institutes, universities as well as professionals in communications. To achieve the ambitious goal, a strong Editorial Board (please see Editorial Board members pages) has been established with a group of authoritative and knowledgeable national and international experts to provide guidance and support. The Editorial Board helps to recruit important authors and review the papers.

The journal will be of academic authority, and innovative nature in content including technology applications, economic management, monographic study, etc..

Special Issue on Services and Communications in Fog Computing
Submission Date: 2017-06-15

Fog computing is an emerging research area that targets on providing services and communications in the space between end users and remote clouds. In the current cloud-based Internet-of-Things (IoT) model, smart devices (such as sensors, smartphones) exchange information through the Internet to cooperate and provide services to users, which could be citizens, smart home systems, and industrial applications. As a result, Fog computing is a new paradigm that entitle cloud computing and services to meets the enhanced communications requirements of low latency, location awareness and mobility support. The Fog computing is located just one wireless hop away from associated end nodes, such as mobile devices, sensors and end users. Services are hosted at the edge of network, consequently, this reduces service latency, improves quality of service and provides a superior experience for end users. Hence, Fog computing paradigm offers ideal placement for low-latency offload infrastructure to support emerging applications that demand real-time or predictable latency, such as vehicle automation, augmented reality and wearable cognitive assistance. Moreover, due to the capability to support a wide geographical distribution, Fog computing is well positioned for big data aggregating, analyzing and distilling bandwidth-hungry sensor data from devices. In IoT, Fog computing offers a natural vantage point for organizational access control, administrative autonomy and responsive analytics. In vehicular systems, Fog computing marks the junction between a moving vehicle and the Cloud. Fog computing-enabled 5G radio access networks can improve network performance, enable direct device-to-device wireless communications and support the growing trend of network function virtualization. Despite the several advantages, realizing Fog computing imposes many new challenges. For example, how to compose, deploy and manage distributed fog services, how to enable highly scalable and manageable Fog computing, how the end users should interact with the cloud, and how to enable users to control their communication services provided by operators. Addressing these challenges necessitates rethinking of the key requirements and potential opportunities for services and communications in Fog computing. This special issue aims to bring together researchers to publish state-of-art research findings of services and communications in Fog computing. Topics: - Fog computing infrastructure and applications for services and communications - Fog computing resources allocation and management for services and communications - Fog-based real time applications for 5G network - Load balancing and service selection/composition at the edge of network - Admission control for services and communications in Fog computing - Pricing and billing models for services in Fog computing - Deployment strategies of Fog services and communications - Service interactions and management between the Fog and the cloud - Fog-based radio access technology for 5G network, IoT, and vehicular systems.
