Special Issue Information
Dear Colleagues,The use of cameras with advanced analysis methods has recently emerged as a promising alternative to conventional contact medical sensors attached to the patient's body. Because of its non-contact nature, this technology will significantly improve patient comfort and pave the way for many new applications. In this special issue, we welcome contributions on methods and systems for measuring physiological signals using cameras and their applications: health monitoring (e.g., during sleep or in fitness and driving contexts); affective computing; and security applications (e.g., video surveillance, biometry, or anti-spoofing). Contributions related to physiological signal measurement from unconventional cameras (multispectral cameras, NIR, and thermal cameras) will also be considered.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2300 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.
