Special Issue "Advances on Resources Management for Multi-Platform Infrastructures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2017
The development of new technologies in micro‐electro‐mechanical systems (MEMS) have increased the capacity of automatically recording, processing and sending information through different infrastructures. This new generation of devices, sensors, and actuators (RFID, Bluetooth Devices, Wireless Sensor Networks WSN, Embedded Systems, and Near Field Communication NFC), which exchange information with other on‐line, connected devices, has created a new market, based on services and applications. However, the coordination tasks between different architectures (sensor, fixed, mobile) bring key challenges in terms of theoretical foundation, security, programmability, energy efficiency, and management. This Special Issue intends to collect current development and the future directions in resource and information management in different infrastructures. We invite authors to submit their original papers. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Multiplatform Integration for fixed sensors and mobile devices.
- Data plane and control plane architectures in fixed sensors and mobile devices.
- Monitoring of multiplatform communication.
- Sensors and Multiplatform Information Processing.
- Sensors and Mobile Integration and Communication.
- Load adaptive in SDN fixed and mobile networks.
- Simulation for multi‐platform architectures.
- Virtualization of data and control planes in sensors and fixed infrastructures.
- Reliable and robust communication for multi‐platform architectures.
- Theoretical foundation of integrated architectures.
- Quality of Service in multiplatform schemes.

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.
