Due to the advantages of practicability, flexibility, low-cost, and unobtrusiveness, in recent years, wearable sensor systems have infiltrated daily human life in applications like activity monitoring, healthcare, rehabilitation, sport training, and entertaining. The development of wearable sensor systems aims at continuously improving the quality of user experience and the performance of researches, which requires the sensor data transmission to be more robust, secure and energy saving, along with more intelligent and reliable data processing techniques. Additionally, many emerging applications of wearable sensors have brought new challenging problems, such as group behavior analysis, dynamic routing and wearable sensor based in-door localization, which force us to find new models or solutions to address them.
In this Special Issue, we solicit original papers with high quality related to data transmission and analysis for wearable sensor systems. Contribution may include, but are not limited to:
- Pattern recognition and analysis, such as daily activity recognition, gait analysis, behavior analysis, disease diagnosis;
- Localization and tracking problems for wearable sensors;
- Data fusion for heterogeneous or multisource wearable sensor data;
- Mobility support for wearable sensors, such as energy harvesting and dynamic routing or clustering;
- Group behavior analysis and prediction;
- Security and privacy issues in data transmission and system protection;
- Other emerging wearable sensor applications;

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. 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 monthly 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 1800 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.
