Special Issue "Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers"
A special issue of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2017)
It is our pleasure to announce this Special Issue that will host selected and peer-reviewed papers from the 6th International Conference on Materials and Applications for Sensors and Transducers (27–30 September, 2016, Athens, Greece). The IC-MAST conference covers a board thematic area of sensor technology and related applications, but is also especially focused on material research that enables sensors and transducers development. Guest Editors also invite individual researchers in addition to IC-MAST 2016 participants to contribute original research papers or timely reviews in those thematic areas.
The research and development activities of sensing devices and transducers has become an interdisciplinary technological field, combining research in a number of diverse thematic areas and technologies, ranging from materials, nanotechnology, processing techniques, mathematical modeling, optimization strategies, and electronics integration to name just a few. New disruptive technologies are exploited towards the identification of new potential sensing and monitoring applications, while demanding and established application areas often impose strict operational requirements in current technologies for the enhancement of sensing performance and functionality in a number of application areas like industry, environment, defence, biomedical, health, etc.
The current Special Issue seeks to strengthen this interdisciplinary connection by hosting representative original contributions, aiming to relate, by characteristic examples, the key issues of basic research and materials development with sensing and transuding technology in the frame of emerging and demanding applications.
The Special Issue would include the following topics:
- Functional materials: optical, magnetic, electronic, semiconducting, nanostructured, etc.
- Sensors and transducers design
- Sensors and transducers fabrication
- Optical and photonic sensors
- Chemical sensors
- Gas sensors
- Sensing methods and technologies
- Sensor systems and applications
- Modelling and computational methods for sensors and transducers design
- Interrogation techniques and devices characterization
- New demanding applications in industry, defence, space, and biomedical areas
- Sensing requirements and solutions for new emerging ICT applications: Wireless Sensor Networks, Internet of Things (IoT), etc.

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.
