The construction of today’s entertainment systems relies on the availability of an ever growing number of sensors. Touch and multi-touch displays are the most common way of interacting with smartphones and tablets, which represent today the ultimate solution for mobile entertainment. RGB-D cameras allow users to control their TVs and gaming consoles using facial expressions, as well as hand and body gestures. Image and inertial data are used to design ever more complex virtual and augmented reality systems. In-car infotainment equipment integrates speech recognition technology to enable hand-free operations. In the near future, we may expect many other kinds of sensing technologies, e.g., for eye and gaze tracking, biosignals interpretation, haptic feedback, etc., to be exploited in a progressively wider set of entertainment applications.
The objective of this Special Issue is to collect high state-of-the-art research contributions, tutorials, and position papers that address the broad challenges that have been faced in the development of sensor-based solutions in the field of entertainment. Original papers describing completed and unpublished work that are not currently under review by any other journal, magazine or conference, are solicited.
Moreover, authors of papers submitted to the 7th International Conference on Intelligent Technologies for Interactive Entertainment, INTETAIN2015 (http://www.intetain.org/2015/show/home) will have the opportunity to submit extended versions of their works in this Special Issue, provided they fulfill the specific journal requirements found at http://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/instructions.

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.
