Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The main goal of this Special Issue is to offer researchers the opportunity to spread their research works on advances related to the applications and technologies of wireless sensor networks for several application domains such as: precision agriculture, smart grid, smart cities, Industry 4.0, VANETs, 5G and beyond, fog networks, etc. The Special Issue will highlight the state-of-the-art algorithms, cross-layer optimization techniques, architectures and frameworks for next-generation WSNs, networking devices, IoT, fog, and pervasive computing environments.

The contribution topics of primary interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Wireless sensor networks and their applications
  • Ad hoc and mesh networks
  • Wireless traffic and routing
  • Cross layer optimization
  • Wireless multimedia communications
  • IoT communication protocols (ZigBee, BLE, NFC, MQTT, XMPP)
  • Network performance, QoS techniques and reliability
  • Energy efficient routing in WNSs, IoT and fog networks
  • Topology control in WSN, IoT and fog networks
  • Cognitive sensors and radio networks
  • VANETs
  • Error correction codes
  • Topology Control (2D and 3D)
  • Underwater WSNs
  • Security issues and algorithms
  • Monitoring and control in wireless networks
  • Resource allocation techniques
  • Measurements and transmission in wireless networks
  • Intelligent vehicular systems
  • Wireless edge computing and communications
  • Channel modelling and propagation
  • Wireless system architectures and protocols
  • Error control, detection and estimation
  • 5G communications

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.
