The special section is organized by IEICE Europe Section.As the growth of wireless services continues, improved and new transmission technologies, system and network architectures and their socio -economic implications are being investigated in order to accommodate the increasing user demand for ease of scalability and reliable broadband service. The special section seeks for submission particularly from, but not limited to, the authors of the IEICE ICT Forum, and will focus on both theoretical and practical aspects of new algorithms, network/system design and architectures, performance analysis, and experimental studies, related to the technical fields of European ICT R&D Projects. 
1. Scope 
Topics of the special section include research results fr om European ICT R&D project activities or related ones for, but are not limited to, the 
following areas: 
Information and communication theory and algorithms, 4G and beyond wireless cellular networks/wireless cooperative networks/wireless cognitive and reconfigurable networks, and related technologies, 
Socio-economic implications of new technologies, law/regulatory impacts of new network technologies, social networking, The Internet of Things and machine type communications, 
Next generation wireline access technologies and networks (integration of optical and wireless access as a last mile, converged optical-wireless networks, power communication technologies, future broadband digital subscriber line (DSL) access, distributed monitoring and management techniques, channel modeling/measurement),and green communication, 
Performance measurements, experimental platforms and testbeds concerning to the above mentioned topics.
2. Submission Instructions 
The standard number of pages is 8. The page charges are considerably higher for extra pages.Manuscripts should be prepared according to the 
guideline in the "Information for Authors." The latest version is available at the web site, <http://www.ieice.org/eng/shiori/mokuji_cs.html>. The
