Context-aware computing describes the development of technologies and applications that can detect data from the surrounding environment and react accordingly with specific actions, reducing and simplifying the human–machine interaction process. The latter automatically offer a range of services to help the user during daily professional or private life by managing the available resources. Therefore, context awareness should be intended as a set of technical features able to provide added value to services in different application segments.
Context changes result in a transformation of the user experience. For this reason, context-aware computing has played a key role in addressing this challenge in previous paradigms, such as mobile and pervasive computing, and is playing a crucial role in the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm. Indeed, thanks to new technologies, a user can access large amounts of content and services with different purposes and requirements in each context. In this scenario, the need arises for recommendation systems that consider users’ personal preferences and all the contextual aspects to recommend the right services and contents at a specific time.
This Special Issue aims to present studies in context-aware computing, recommender systems, and IoT. Researchers are invited to submit their manuscripts to this Special Issue and contribute their models, proposals, reviews, and studies.

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. 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 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.
