Professor Sennur Ulukus (ECE/ISR) and alum Eytan Modiano (EE Ph.D. 1992), professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a former student of Professor Emeritus Tony Ephremides (ECE/ISR), are two of the guest editors of a special issue on the Age of Information for the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications, published by the IEEE Communications Society.

Along with Ulukus and Modiano, the guest editors include Roy Yates, Rutgers University; Yin Sun, Auburn University; D. Richard Brown III, Worcester Polytechnic University; and Sanjit K. Kaul, IIIT-Delhi. This is the May 2021 issue of the journal.

The guest editors contribute a guest editorial and a survey article that introduces research in data freshness and provides a broad summary of recent work. The survey is followed by 20 contributed papers, including one by Ephremides and co-authors, that reflect the state of the art in Age of Information research. The broad categories include economic models and games, cyberphysical systems and applications, sampling and estimation, single-source updating, and updating multiple access.
