Featured Article: "Secrecy performance analysis of IRS-NOMA systems"

New Content Item Non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) is a multiple access technique included in 5G wireless networks, while intelligent reflecting surfaces (IRS) are considered for 6G. The paper studies physical layer security on wireless multiuser networks equipped with these technologies. In particular, approximate closed-form expressions for the secrecy outage probability (SOP) and the asymptotic SOP for different wiretapping cases are derived. It is observed that the IRS-NOMA can achieve superior secrecy performance with increasing the number of reflecting elements of the IRS.

Featured Article: "Artificial intelligence for channel estimation in multicarrier systems for B5G/6G communications: a survey"

mobilenetwork For beyond 5G and 6G wireless networks, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing and multicarrier modulation schemes are strongly considered. For the efficient and robust design of multicarrier systems, there are a number of challenges including fading, synchronisation, distortion. Channel estimation at the receiver is usually formulated as model-based optimization problem. Recently, artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms are successfully applied to approach the channel estimation and data decoding in a model-free way. Therefore, the paper comprehensively surveys AI-based channel estimation for multicarrier systems. Read the full article here.

Society affiliation

The European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) was founded on 1 September 1978 to improve communication between groups and individuals that work within the multidisciplinary, fast growing field of signal processing in Europe and elsewhere, and to exchange and disseminate information in this field all over the world. The association exists to further the efforts of researchers by providing a learned and professional platform for dissemination and discussion of all aspects of signal processing including continuous- and discrete-time signal theory, applications of signal processing, systems and technology, speech communication, and image processing and communication.
EURASIP members are entitled to a 10% discount on the article-processing charge. To claim this discount, the corresponding author must enter the membership code when prompted. This can be requested from their EURASIP representative.

Editor's Quote

New Content Item (1)The Journal of Wireless Communications and Networking is riding on the 5th generation waves of the upcoming mobile communication systems with support of signal processing techniques and tools. Driven by the novel use cases for cyber physical systems, for the internet of things, and of the tactile internet, the journal will further grow and develop to take holistic and multi-disciplinary views on communications and networking. After the excellent Editor in Chief term of Professor Luc Vandendorpe, I am looking forward to work with all the Senior Editors as well as the new members of the Editorial Board in the coming years. A special thanks goes to the affiliated Society, the European Association for Signal Processing!
