Novel coronavirus pneumonia is a major threat to the industry in 2020. Manufacturing industry has adopted digital technology to cope with the global COVID-19 epidemic crisis, especially artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), edge computing and analytical technology.

This special issue will provide a systematic overview and state-of-the-art research in Internet Technology, Computing, IoT and Computer Engineering Technology, with a special focus on artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), edge computing and Blockchain technologies, and will outline new developments in fundamental, approaches, methodologies, software systems, and applications in these areas. Submissions should consist of novel ideas, original results, theoretical and applied research in following topics, but not limited to:

  • Broadband Networks
  • Wireless Communication
  • Telecommunication Networks
  • Transportation Networks
  • UAV-assisted Networks
  • Quantum Internet
  • Network Management
  • Network Behavior Modeling
  • Security for Networks and Systems
