The IEEE Transactions on Communications (TCOM) publishes high-quality papers reporting theoretical and experimental advances in the general area of communications. TCOM is committed to provide a timely and rigorous peer-review process for all submitted papers.
TCOM has a broad scope spanning several areas such as wireless communications, wired communications, and optical communications. Although TCOM’s main focus is the physical layer of communication systems, papers on cross-layer design and networking are also welcome as long as the reported results are based on a realistic model for the physical layer.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Modulation, signal design, and detection
Precoding, equalization, and synchronization
Source and channel coding
Information theory with application to communications
Millimeter wave communication
Smart Grid Communications
Physical layer security
Fiber-based and wireless optical communication
Nano- and molecular communications
Cross-layer design and networking
Green and energy harvesting communications
Current and future communication systems such as 4G, 5G, WiFi, etc.
Contributions in emerging areas such as molecular communications, THz-communications, wireless power transfer, massive MIMO, etc. are particularly welcome.
