Download Call for Papers (PDF)

Submission Deadline: 30 June 2022

ss ydong 1Aims & Scope: Reconfigurable, or adaptive antennas, which are able to smartly adjust their radiation according to their environment, surrounding the end users, have found more and more applications. Phased array antennas are special reconfigurable antennas with beam scanning which are widely used in 5G communications. Antenna tuners have also been widely shipped and employed. This special section encourages submissions focusing on reconfigurable antennas which are designed to enhance our communication experience in in-door and 5G base stations. We especially welcome contributions on innovative antenna designs and antenna concepts related to certain configurations, such as the reconfigurable intelligent surfaces (RIS), and pattern reconfigurable small antennas. We also hope to attract review articles which describe the current state of the art.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Metasurface Based Intelligent Bit Array
  • Reconfigurable Intelligent Surface
  • Wide Scanning Phased Array
  • Multi-port Multi-beam Antenna
  • Pattern Reconfigurable Antenna
  • Frequency Tunable Antenna
  • Self-matching Tunable Antennas


  1. Reconfigurable antenna
  2. Pattern Reconfigurable
  3. Impedance/Aperture Tuning
  4. Adaptive/Intelligent Antenna
  5. Scanning Antenna
