Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The need for a new communication systems to cope with the call for new services demanding higher performance, larger throughput, wider bandwidth and lower bit-error-rates, requires the development of new methodologies and techniques. The scientific conference RTUWO'18 is focused on new techniques extending limits of currently used communication systems. The conference seeks submissions from academia, industry, and government institutions to present novel research on wireless and optical communication systems.

This Special Issue aims to collate the selected extended papers related to sensors from RTUWO'18.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Optical Communications

  • Optical signal processing
  • Advances in optical networking
  • Photonic communication systems and networks
  • All-optical communication systems
  • Passive optical networks
  • Active optical networks

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.
