Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A smart city represents an improvement of today’s cities both functionally and structurally, that strategically utilizes many smart factors, such as Information and Communications Technology (ICT), to increase the city’s sustainable growth and strengthen city functions, while ensuring citizens’ quality of life and health. Cities can be viewed as a microcosm of “objects” with which citizens interact daily: street furniture, public buildings, transportation, monuments, public lighting and much more. Moreover, a continuous monitoring of a city’s status occurs through sensors and processors applied within the real-world infrastructure. The Internet of Things (IoT) concept imagines all these objects being “smart”, connected to the Internet, and able to communicate with each other and with the external environment, interacting and sharing data and information. Each object in the IoT can be both the collector and distributor of information regarding mobility, energy consumption, air pollution as well as potentially offering cultural and tourist information. As a consequence, cyber and real worlds are strongly linked in a smart city. New services can be deployed when needed and evaluation mechanisms will be set up to assess the health and success of a smart city.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together innovative developments in areas related to sensors and smart cities, including, but not limited to:

  • computing and sensing infrastructures;
  • cost (of node, energy, development, deployment, maintenance);
  • communication (security, resilience, low energy);
  • adaptability (to environment, energy, faults);
  • data processing (on nodes, distributed, aggregation, discovery, big data);
  • self-learning (pattern discovery, prediction, auto-configuration);
  • deployment (cost, error prevention, localization);
  • maintenance (troubleshooting, recurrent costs);
  • applications (both new and enjoying new life);
  • smart users experience;
  • trust and privacy;
  • crowdsourcing, crowdsensing, participatory sensing;
  • cognition and awareness;
  • cyber-physical systems.

Both review articles and original research papers relating to sensors and smart cities are solicited. There is particular interest for papers with advances towards practical experiences and services overcoming the adoption barriers for sensors and smart cities.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 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).
