This special issue aims at collecting and presenting recent works on innovative approaches and emerged technologies for coping with dynamicity, heterogeneity and the scale, that have been central to (or even enablers of) recent advances in communications and networking technologies. At a time of an ever-increasing demand for networking resources and a larger scale, communication networks have faced challenges due to the heterogeneity of the demands, the diversity of communication mechanisms, the high dynamicity of the environments, the virtualization of functions and the stringent and dynamic quality requirements.
