With the advance of the 5th generation (5G) wireless communication system in recent years, 5G network construction and terminal equipment have gradually been finalized and entered the commercial stage. The 6th generation (6G) mobile communication system has become a promising and important area with both academic and industrial concerns. Compared with 5G, 6G will achieve higher access rate (10100 times higher), lower access delay, as well as wider and deeper communication coverage, with much better energy and spectrum efficiency. It enables the material, process, technology, and forms of antenna and radio frequency (RF) systems to evolve continuously. There are several important tendencies in the development of antenna and RF systems.

1. Transform of antenna to new frequency bands.

2. Breakthroughs in the performance of antennas with new materials and metamaterials.

3. Evolution of antenna propagation channel.

4. Significant changes in antenna-related measurement technology.

To sum up, the antenna system for future communications is facing numerous challenges. The improvement of antenna system performance will inevitably lead to improvement of the overall performance of wireless communication systems. The evolution and innovation of antenna configurations can also pave the way for new applications.

In this context, the Chinese Academy of Engineering (CAE) organized a special issue on evolution and innovation of antenna systems for beyond 5G and 6G in Frontiers of Information Technology & Electronic Engineering. This special issue covers antennas, passive and active devices and systems, propagation and channels, as well as materials and algorithms. The available frequencies extend from sub-6 GHz all the way up to the region of THz. The special issue is intended to review the state-of-the-art antenna-related research and show future research directions. After rigorous review processes, 13 papers by researchers worldwide have been selected, including seven review articles, four research articles, and two correspondences.
