Human daily-life behavior is influenced by environment, emotion, cognition state, and personal traits of subjects and includes voluntary actions, such as physical activity, face-to-face interaction, call, lifestyle choices, but also spontaneous activity (fidgeting, maintaining posture) and physiological activity. This Special Issue addresses wearable measuring systems where sensors, such as GPS, inertial sensors, gaze trackers, skin conductivity sensors, thermal sensing, microphone, camera, electrodes, and other body worn sensors, are used for behavior sensing.
We invite original contribution including sensors used for behavior monitoring, validity and reliability of sensing modality, signal processing, and modeling of behavior data. This special issue is also interested by new algorithms based on body worn systems that have been applied to study behavior in health and disease, through monitoring of sleep, physical activity, emotion, cognition, wellness, sedentarity, and life-style.

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.
