The Internet of Things (IoT) is prevalent in our daily life, and edge computing (EC) has become an active research field supporting low processing power, real-time response time, and more resource capacity than IoT and mobile devices. It has also been considered to effectively mitigate loads on data centers, to assist artificial intelligence (AI) services, and to increase 5G services. Therefore, edge computing applications along with the IoT field are essential technical directions in order to open the door to new opportunities enabling smart homes, smart hospitals, smart cities, smart vehicles, smart wearables, smart supply chain, e-health, automation, and a variety of other smart environments. It is helpful not only to provide human-oriented services at a lower cost, but also to create an intelligent eco-environment. Highly-researched topics have included infrastructure planning; frameworks, protocols, and algorithms for the IoT; novel intelligent hardware or software platforms; security and energy efficiency; and more. Accordingly, this Special Issue encourages authors to present their recent work showing edge computing applications in the IoT, and provides a unique opportunity for both technology and applied science to meet.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1500 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.
