Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 9th International Symposium on Ubiquitous Computing and Ambient Intelligence, 7th International Workshop on Ambient Assisted Living, and the 1st International Conference on Ambient Intelligence for Health (UCAmI, IWAAL, and AmIHEALTH 2015) will be held on 1–4 December, 2015, in Puerto Varas, Chile.

Traditionally, the science and technology of sensors and biosensors has had a remarkable influence on UCAmI, IWAAL, and AmIHEALTH conferences. Thus, both academia and industry are invited to submit papers about any of following topics of interest:

  • Mobile ad hoc networks and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs).
  • Smart sensors and wearable computing.
  • Custom made Internet-connected objects.
  • Semantic middleware infrastructure (Semantic Web, OSGi, DPWS, home automation standards).
  • Mining techniques to mobile and sensor data.
  • Contextualized analysis of social and information networks.
  • Identification and sensing for Context-awareness. Internet of Things. Knowledge Representation and Management
  • Sensors in Ambient Assisted Living. Monitoring in daily living, activity recognition, body monitoring, and behavior aspects
  • Smart environments for health

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.
