Special Issue Information
Miniaturization and cost reduction have brought embedded systems to the core of the modern technological society, making them ubiquitous in almost every domain. The design, engineering, programming, deployment, and management of applications based on embedded systems require a broad range of approaches, methodologies, and techniques, which are often characteristics of each specific application domain. Embedded system applications are required to cope with limited resources (processing power, memory, energy), communication, and networking, both wired and wireless, interfacing with sensors and actuators, specific programming paradigms, and methodologies, which makes the development of an embedded application a challenging task.
The scope of this Special Issue encompasses the full stack of technologies behind modern embedded applications: design of embedded devices, development of software, integration within a larger system, deployment, and management.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions on novel and inspiring applications of embedded systems, including, but not limited to, the following domains:
- Industrial Automation, Manufacturing
- Appliance Automation (Household, Entertainment)
- Wearable Systems
- Energy Systems, Smart Grid, Home and Building Automation
- Security, Surveillance
- Smart Cities

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.
