Wireless Acoustic Sensor Networks (WASN) have been developed under the paradigms of both the Smart City and the Internet of Things (IoT). In recent years, there has been a rapid evolution of WASNs, and many works have been developed. To date, several authors have designed and deployed WASNs for different purposes, such as noise monitoring or sound identification of road traffic, people, animals, or shots.
Nevertheless, the WASN paradigm presents several challenges, ranging from those derived from the design and development of wireless sensor networks, such as energy harvesting and low cost hardware development and maintenance, to some specific challenges derived from the automation of data collection and subsequent signal processing, such as to detect events.
Authors are invited to submit their work to this Special Issue, in which new advances and proposals in the use of WASNs are presented. The aim is to present contributions from different aspects of innovation in the field of WASNs: Theoretical studies, advances in the design of new sensors, new fields of application, results of longitudinal studies in the use of this technology and other studies where WASNs are the focus of interest.

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 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 1400 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.
