Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The next generation of the Internet is expected to interconnect and to make heterogeneous and smart objects interoperable in order to realize the Internet of Things (IoT). It aims to diffuse smart and pervasive environments able to offer innovative services in heterogeneous applicative scenarios, such as environmental monitoring, building automation, healthcare, smart cities, smart grids, logistics, and tourism. The combination among emerging wireless communication technologies, cloud-based software architecture, embedded systems, and artificial intelligence systems based on machine learning or deep learning, promises to carry out the digital transformation anywhere.

This Special Issue invites authors to submit original research or review articles mainly focused on the Internet of Things and smart environments. Potential interesting topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to the following:

  • IoT-aware systems based on wireless and wearable devices;
  • Embedded systems in IoT-aware system architectures;
  • Protocols performance analysis in IoT architectures;
  • Smart environments based on IoT Technologies;
  • Mobile applications and rapid prototyping in the IoT;
  • Middleware, semantic web, and ontology in the IoT;
  • Fog computing in the IoT;
  • Innovative AAL systems;
  • Microservices architectures;
  • Innovative solutions for industrial Internet of Things;
  • Big data and data analytics;
  • Intelligent transport systems;
  • Localization systems;
  • Safety and emergency systems based on IoT technologies;
  • Artificial intelligence systems based on machine learning or deep learning;
  • Case studies, field trials, and industrial applications.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
