Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ubiquitous Computing (UbiComp) and Ambient Intelligence (AmI) applications are receiving much attention. However, they still face many challenges. The main issues relate to the requirement of providing a wider variety of services, while at the same time providing increased levels of personalization. To compound this difficulty of balancing priorities, solutions have to provide increased levels of functionality while the complexity of use is expected to decrease. The development of new sensing solutions, coupled with their integration with mobile and pervasive computing, encapsulates some key topics being investigated in this Special Issue.

Authors are invited to submit the extended versions of their original papers and contributions, including but not limited to, the following topics of interest:

  • New hardware and software for UbiComp and AmI
  • New architectures for UbiComp and AmI
  • Middleware-based solutions for UbiComp and AmI
  • Software structures for UbiComp and AmI applications
  • Collaborative systems and operations for UbiComp and AmI solutions
  • Social networks in aUbiComp solution
  • Security considerations in aUbiComp solution
  • Analytical and modeling methods for Ubicomp and AmI solutions
  • New technical solutions for Ambient Assisted Living (AAL)
  • Advanced development methodologies for UbiComp/AmI solutions
  • Case Studies of deployed solutions within aUbiComp or AmI setting

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a 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).
