Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Intelligent systems influence many aspects of daily life. With the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), opportunities have been created for smart computing infrastructure. However, problems might arise from the lack of interconnectivity, higher reliability, real-time predictive analytics, and low-latency requirements. Thus, next-generation systems must have greater integration, speed, flexibility, and energy efficiency. Some contend that this feature set will require enhanced sensing technologies, new types of processors and computing architectures that break with traditional concepts and blur the lines between conventional computing system elements. The sensing infrastructure and devices having intelligent aspects might be considered as an extension of conventional sensors with advanced learning and adaptability. Intelligent sensors and sensing networks can perform several tasks such as data collection and processing, data interpretation, the fusion of data from multiple sources, validation of local and remotely collected data, error compensation, etc. Additionally, they provide support for post-sensing information processing, communication, and integration. We see extensive research on intelligence-based smart sensing for cloud/edge systems, which has manifested itself in the development of exciting new systems including those that improve efficiency, provide reliability, reduce cost, optimize sustainability, or bring new business venues to bear.  Additionally, although more mature Artificial Intelligence (AI) work targeting smart sensors for cloud/edge systems is out there, there is a need for incredibly more. Hence, this proposed Special Issue aims to bring together academic researchers, industry practitioners, and individuals working in related areas to bring their state-of-the-art research ideas, concepts, views, latest findings, and results and share them with the community at large. Both theoretical and empirical studies are encouraged.

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. Electronics 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.
