The advent of context aware environments, as well as the evolution of wireless communication systems, is leading towards HetNet operation with a vast amount of potential connected devices. Within this context, spectrum management, as well as coverage/capacity analyses, is a key element in order to provide adequate quality of service metrics. Spectrum management is therefore compulsory, aided by techniques derived from the use of cognitive radio/cognitive network approaches in order to dynamically handle complex multi-system environments. This can be further extended to Device 2 Device (D2D) and Machine 2 Machine (M2M) communications, in which sensor networks are one of the main elements in order to enable context interactivity.
This Special Issue aims to highlight advances in the development, testing, and modeling of Cognitive Radio Sensing and Sensor Networks, within the broad area of potential application of such systems. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Cognitive Radio proposals applied to sensor network deployment
- Cognitive Radio within Cognitive Network architectures
- Cognitive Radio and Sensor Network testbeds
- Practical applications of Cognitive Radio and Sensor Networks
- Spectrum Handling and Energy Efficiency within Sensor Network systems

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.
