Special Issue on Signal Processing Techniques for Sustainable Communication in Underwater Acoustic Networks
Aims
Communication systems have come a long way since humans discovered first how to communicate. From smartphones to holographic projections, a lot has changed with the advent of technology. Now it is possible to communicate underwater as well. Underwater acoustic communication is the process of sending and receiving messages in an underwater environment. Hydrophones are the most commonly used device. The complexity of such communication systems exists due to the limited bandwidth, heavy signal attenuation, low data rates, time variations, and multi-path propagation. In order to address these critical issues, innovative signal processing systems are being used. Iterative equalization and decoding and spatial multiplexing methods of signal processing have been proven to enhance the robustness and performance of such underwater acoustic networks. Research in signal processing for underwater communication is majorly focused on the standardization of channel models and feedback-based underwater acoustic systems. The former issue can be addressed using techniques like statistical models and nominal propagation models. However, due to the heterogeneity of underwater surfaces and complex environments, categorised and tailored models might have to be created. Future research can focus on a unified model that includes a repository of observed channel responses.
The latter issue relating to feedback is helpful in developing smart underwater acoustic systems for the next generation. These can be achieved using a number of innovative tools like directive transmission, adaptive power control, adaptive positioning, and adaptive modulation. The advantages of such feedback systems include active time reversal, excitation in single mode etc. Future research in this area can focus on security and privacy, spatial division multiplexing, and point-to-point links. Peer-to-peer networks are being integrated with cellular-based centralized networking to develop bandwidth-efficient underwater acoustic networks. It has been demonstrated that information-based, software-define, and mobility-aware architecture is the key to addressing challenges like large communication delays and degrading network efficiency. The future of sustainable underwater acoustic networks relies heavily on the combination of communication, sensing, and navigation solutions, reliable network communications among Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), and sustainable implementation. The cost, implementation, and availability of such underwater communication systems can also be significantly increased with the help of lighter and more sustainable hardware and software tools.
Scopes
Topics of Interest of the special issue include the following:
    • Development of active real-time ocean monitoring and observation systems using peer-to-peer networks.

Special Issue on New Paradigms in Remote Sensing for Monitoring and Surveillance of Land Change Science
Aims
As an interdisciplinary study, this land change science helps in evaluating the changes in Land Use and Land Cover (LULC) along with the climatic changes. This detection of LULC is generally done with the help of technology like remote sensing that successfully establishes geographic information of large inaccessible regions. This georeferenced mapping technology classifies different statuses of the land as a settlement area, surface water body, marshy land, river, agricultural land, fallow land, etc. And these land use classifications play a prime role in planning, monitoring, and managing socio-economic development at local, regional, and national levels. As well it also supports policy formulations and planning strategies to ensure sustainable development. This type of approach involves pixel-based software analysis of satellite data (like supervised and unsupervised classifications, object-based image analysis, etc.) that significantly partitions the homogeneous image of a region. Moreover, this categorization of a landscape at a specific time could help have its applications on natural resource management, baseline mapping, natural hazard damage delineation, wildlife habitat protection, urban encroachment determination, routing a plan for exploration activities, and much more. With all these significant roles propounded by remote sensing technology, it seems to be a critical technology in this land change science. Including non-parametric, object-oriented, spectral, parametric, pre-pixel, per-field, and hybrid system classifiers, many image classification methods could be used in analysing the remotely sensed data. These classifiers may be integrated with advanced algorithms like multi-layer perceptron, artificial neural networks, fuzzy art-map classifications, radial basis function networks, self-organized feature maps, etc for better computations rate of huge datasets. The use of these tools could bring in various advantages like high efficiency in handling noise, enhanced integration of multi-sourced data, widened computational efficiency, potential to handle overlapping data, the requirement of minimum training data set, etc. Despite having so many beneficial factors, a few challenging notes are still existing in this advanced system. These may include a time-consuming classification process, dependency on user-defined parameters, difficulty in determining optimal parameters, and complexities in the calculation when it is correlated with various outcomes. Achieving a technology with a high-performance rate is possible when there is minimal error pertaining to the system. Keeping this in mind, it is an obvious step to welcome researchers and other professional participants to put forth their innovative solutions for the welfare of this domain. Thus, these special issues open up various research opportunities for the researchers to inculcate their new ideas to fetch pragmatic solutions for the upliftment of this domain.

Special Issue on Enhancing Business Process Management through Intelligent Cybersecurity
Aims
In today’s world, business organizations have to deal with a myriad of challenges. Business processes are crucial to a company’s efficacious functioning. Nonetheless, since they are repetitive and entail different stakeholders, they are most prone to errors and poor performance. Therefore, organizations strive to upgrade their Business Process Management (BPM) systems by integrating them with their Business Intelligence (BI), hence making them intelligent. With this means, Business Process Management (BPM) has evolved into Intelligent Business Management (IBPM) in a persistent attempt to fulfil the demands of business process intelligence completely. Intelligent Business Process Management integrates technological innovations, predictive analytics, and process intelligence into the software of IBPM. Compared to the BPM, IBPM is considerably more dynamic and offers more excellent functional responsiveness in various ways, such as real-time analytics assisting intelligent business operations, processing of critically complicated events, mobile platform assistance, and many others. Advanced features of IBPM technology such as Business Process Automation, Enhances collaboration, Predictive analytics, API integration, Low code functionality, and better time management. These attributes of IBPM enable Automation for repetitive operations and help eliminate huge expenditure of manual processing delays, errors, and inefficient business processes. With that, IBPM gathers and analyzes data to support firms to detect novel opportunities and forecast potential future risks effectively. With these technology-driven features, IBPM offers a variety of business advantages such as lowered costs, enhanced customer service and increase in revenue, agility, and mobility for teams, efficiency enhancement and risk reduction, and a lot more. However, with all these potentials described above for firms, IBPM still encounters several challenges in cybersecurity. Security hazards, including data thefts, malware, and hacker attacks, pose a critical threat to the secure execution of business operations. Further, security safeguards are commonly a result of existing trends in information security. With that, decision-makers are driven mainly by fear while delineating security safeguards with a just in case, and consequently, the security decisions only offer punctual solutions. This circumstance also neglects the incorporation of security safeguards to the operating models of a concern. Subsequently, security departments are instead isolated from the rest of the corporate core areas. In addition, the handling of vast requires extreme care while creating, transmitting, storing, and processing because this is the surface of comprehensive attack and attracts privacy violations, email hijacking, and many others. Furthermore, IBPM also faces various vulnerabilities, insufficiencies, misconfigures, leaking of information to third parties, and many worst scenarios have been happening in the business world. In this context, this special issue intends to address Intelligent Business Process Management and cybersecurity. We invite researchers, practitioners, and scholars from various disciplines to present novel and innovative solutions for this particular issue.
