Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning Enabled
Reconfigurable Wireless Networks
Aim and Scope

Reconfigurable Wireless Networks (RWNs) are composed of a set of
communicating nodes such that each one executes reconfigurable software
tasks to control local networking nodes. RWNs can include reconfiguration
of software, hardware and protocols. Software reconfiguration allows the
inclusion, exclusion or updation of tasks, hardware reconfiguration allows
the activation and deactivation of nodes, and protocol reconfiguration
allows the modification of routing protocols between nodes. In recent
years, we have witnessed rapid proliferation of the following: (1)
development of fully programmable, protocol-independent data planes and
languages for programming and (2) the emergence of new platforms, tools,
and algorithms for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML).
Wireless networks possess perception, learning, reasoning, and
decision-making capabilities, which make AI/ML an indispensable tool to
optimize and to efficiently operate it. 5G wireless networks are rapidly
evolving towards an intelligent and software-defined design paradigm, where
different parts of the network might be configured and controlled via
user-centric AI. The future of wireless networks, giving rise to
intelligent processing, which aims at enabling the system to perceive and
assess the available resources, to autonomously learn to adapt to the
perceived wireless environment, and to reconfigure its operating mode to
maximize the utility of the available resources. Perception capability and
reconfigurability are essential features of cognitive technology while
modern ML techniques project effectiveness in system adaptation. Further,
due to massive data explosion currently there is a problem of huge spectrum
scarcity, which can be solved with the help of reconfigurable wireless
networks where nodes are capable of changing their frequencies. Therefore,
there is a requirement of AI and ML assisted algorithms for spectrum and
energy efficient communication, wireless security, MAC issues etc. The
Special issue will give emphasis on novel techniques for building
reconfigurable wireless networks and coupling the technological advances in
wireless networking with scientific innovations in AI and ML.

This SI seeks contributions from experts in areas such as network
programming, formal methods, control theory, distributed systems, machine
learning, data science, data structures and algorithms, and optimization in
the view of reconfigurable wireless networks as well as improving the
performance of AI and ML solutions.
