IEEE Networking Letters is now open for submissions. Papers accepted for publication are being posted to IEEE Xplore. The first issue will be published in the First Quarter of 2019.

IEEE Networking Letters is a forum for letter-style journal papers publishing high-impact results in a timely manner. The IEEE Networking Letters publishes high-quality, original research results derived from theoretical or experimental exploration of the area of communication/computer networking, covering all network layers except the physical layer, including architecture and design, protocols, control mechanisms, operations and management of access, core and edge networks. Although the scope of the Letters does not cover original work focusing solely on the physical layer, it does cover cross-layer design techniques that encompass physical transmissions.

IEEE Networking Letters accepts 5-page manuscripts (10-point single-spaced double column standard IEEE format) and the review cycle is intended to last at most six weeks after the submission date. Letters not exceeding 4 printed pages will not incur any page charges. 5-page letters will incur a mandatory page charge of US$220.

IEEE Networking Letters topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Special Issue on Advances in AI for 6G Networks

Network protocols: Design, speci cation and veri cation, implementation, operation and performance evaluation of protocols in all network layers (data link, network, transport, and application).

Network context: Core, data center, edge, storage, and access networks; networks-on-chip and system interconnection networks; mobile, cellular, sensor, ad-hoc and vehicular networks; internetworking and Internet of things; virtual, overlay, and online social networks; and using wireline, wireless, or hybrid transmission technologies.

Network themes: architecture and (cross-layer) design, planning and control, applications and services, software and hardware, operations and management, security and privacy, survivability and reliability, virtualization and network programmability, measurement and modeling, pricing and economics.

Detailed instructions for submitting a paper can be found at the Author Guidelines.
