Special Issue "Sensors and Measurement Systems for Marine Engineering Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 November 2021.
Interests: measurement systems for marine engineering; sensor interfacing; micromechanical systems (MEMS); new microsystems technologies; microsystems modeling and simulation; silicon micromachining; porous silicon technology; microsensors; sensors/actuators on PCB substrate
The proper operation of any modern vessel relies heavily on the information provided by the onboard measuring devices that quantify critical performance parameters. Consequently, the role of sensor devices and measurement systems in general is undoubtedly of great importance in the vast majority of marine engineering applications.
During the past three decades, the immensely expanding field of “microsensors”—a discipline originating from integrated circuit (IC) technology—has led to a new generation of sensing devices with remarkable capabilities and performances exceeding those of their macroscale counterparts. Accordingly, sensors employed on vessels followed the same trend, taking their role one step further by incorporating semiconductor-based technology into standard marine equipment and measurement systems.
This Special Issue of Applied Sciences aims to target this challenging and emerging field where advanced measuring devices (microsensors) and novel measurement systems meet marine technology. Researchers from both academia and industry are invited to submit unpublished research work related to the design and development of novel sensors/microsensors (e.g., gyroscopes, flow/pressure meters, and magnetic pick-ups) with the ability to be employed on a modern vessel, together with novel measurement systems and methods that advance the state-of-the-art technology of marine engineering.
Original research or review articles addressing areas that are complementary but closely related to the above, such as vessel automation systems employing novel sensing devices/methods or detection systems for safety and security, are also welcomed for publication.

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 2000 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.
