Nowadays, more than 3.5 billion people use smartphones in the world, and the number is anticipated to continue to grow in the future. Smartphones can be used for various purposes; their versatility ranges from fast processing and portability to connectivity with a number of networks to sensors allowing the measurement of properties of the device itself and the external environment. Furthermore, smartphones are equipped with intuitive software (S/W) distribution systems and thus have significant benefits associated with small costs when applications are developed to replace existing methods or tools.
Smart glasses or smart goggles are optical head-mounted displays that project a virtual image that is visible to the wearer on top of the real-world view. Smart glasses provide both the intrinsic function of glasses for viewing objects in front and the functions of a smartphone. Unlike smartphones, smart glasses have a great advantage of freeing both hands of the worker so that they can focus on the work. Therefore, smart glasses can also be used in various fields, including healthcare, training, logistics, and tourism.
Many applications of smartphone and smart glasses have been developed in the realm of applied science and engineering for purposes of collecting, storing, analyzing, and visualizing various sets of information and data. This Special Issue (SI) aims to encourage scientists, engineers, educators, students, and researchers to address the current state-of-the-art applications of smartphone and smart glasses in applied science and engineering. Original research contributions and reviews showing the improvements brought by smartphone and smart glasses applications in all areas of applied science and engineering can be included in this SI.

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 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.
