Subject: [ICT4S] Special Issue on "Sustainable Communication Networks" at
MDPI - Impact Factor 2.075! 50% Discount for featured papers!
To: "ict4s(a)lists.ifi.uzh.ch" <ict4s(a)lists.ifi.uzh.ch>
I would like yo draw your attention to a new special issue on "Sustainable
Communication Networks” of the MDPI Sustainability Journal with Impact
Factor of 2.075:
We appreciate submissions, where communication networks have been applied
and are planned to be applied to achieve any of the Sustainable Development
The deadline is November 30, 2018.
If you would like to take advantage of the “featured paper” option, please
let me know before submitting your paper. Below you can find more details
about the special issue.
This Special Issue is dedicated to sustainable communication networks. On
one side, communication networks can be designed with sustainability in
mind—they can be resource-efficient, interoperable or open. On the other
side, communication networks have also the potential to improve
sustainability in other areas, such as agriculture, environmental
monitoring, health monitoring, etc. In this Special Issue, we would like to
span all these areas and show how, broadly, various types of communication
networks can be used to support a more sustainable life on Earth.
Types of communication networks of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Wireless Sensor Networks and the Internet of Things
• Opportunistic and device-to-device communications
• Infrastructure-less communications
• Pervasive and ubiquitous networking
Applications targeted include, but are not limited to:
• Supporting any of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
• Agriculture and environmental sensing/monitoring
• Crowd and participatory sensing
• Educating for the SDGs
• Interoperability and back compatibility in telecommunications
• Resource efficiency and re-usage/re-cycling
• Waste monitoring
• Pollution and waste monitoring/management
• Anti-poaching and game preservation applications

In light of the very positive feedback regarding the idea of developing a brief CN Manual, as a 2018 DC3 Outcome, I have prepared a DRAFT Call for Resources.
Feel free to comment on the DRAFT by 28 June, using this pad https://pad.codigosur.org/DRAFTcall_for_resources_DC3
The Call is below
All the best
IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3)
*DRAFT* 2018 Report - Call for Resources *DRAFT*
The Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity (DC3) is a multistakeholder group, part of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum (IGF)<http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/dynamiccoalitions>, dedicated to promoting the discussion on community networks (CN). DC3 furthers analysis of how CNs may help create sustainable Internet connectivity while empowering Internet users. Further information regarding DC3 can be found on the IGF website<http://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/content/dynamic-coalition-on-commun…> as well as on comconnectivity.org
Previous DC3 reports, dedicated to Community networks: the Internet by the people<http://bibliotecadigital.fgv.br/dspace/handle/10438/19401>, for the people (2017) and to Community Connectivity: Building the Internet from Scratch<http://bibliotecadigital.fgv.br/dspace/handle/10438/17528> (2016), and to are freely available under Creative Commons License.
The Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity, established under the auspices of the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, invites all interested individuals to submit papers describing how CN can be deployed and presenting technologies, toolkits and instruction for the concrete constructions of CNs.
This call aims at developing a brief CN manual, providing concrete guidance on:
· What low cost hardware could be used to deploy a CN
· What software and applications could be used to run a CN
· How to install and configure hardware and software
Only papers providing instructions, guidance or describing concrete technological solutions will be considered for inclusion in the 2018 report, even if they have been previously published.
The length of the submissions should be between 2000 and 8000 words. To facilitate the reviewing process, papers should not include author names or other information that would help identify the authors. All submission shall be in English.
Authors shall use footnotes rather than endnotes and submission should be in Microsoft Word or OpenDocument Text format.
Submissions are due on 30 July 2017. They should include the following elements:
· Short abstract (250 words)
· First draft of the submitted paper
· Author’s name, afﬁliation and short bibliographical note (in the body of the email)
Submissions should be sent to luca.belli(a)fgv.br<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org>
Authors will be notiﬁed within approximately 7 days from the deadline as to the status of their contributions.
All submitted papers will be subject to peer review.
Authors will be given the opportunity to improve their contributions based on peer comments.
Selected papers will be published into the 2018 Report of the IGF Dynamic Coalition on Community Connectivity, which will be published in open access, under Creative Commons licenses.
Authors will also be invited (at their own expenses) to present their work at the annual DC3 meeting to be held at the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, from 12 to 14 November, at the UNESCO headquarter in Paris, France.
