Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent outbreak of pandemic disease has seriously affected health and the world economy. The disease is mainly spread via human-to-human transmission, which makes it very difficult to control, especially in the present modern world. To manage the pandemic disease, it is suggested to (a) avoid human-to-human transmission, (b) explore tools for targeted and mass testing, and (c) introduce transfer knowledge supported by electronics, artificial intelligence (AI), and the Internet of Medical Things (IomT). The latter approach is emerging as a most promising approach to explore and investigate new methodologies of early-stage diagnostics, exploring the best available treatment with reference to patient profile, tracking disease profiling, analyzing the pathological impact of virus, and investigating the effect of the virus on human behavior. Such a nano/micro-electronics-based approach supported by AI and IomT, based on a reduced form factor approach, can be optimized to manage and control the pandemic disease in the most effective form. Keeping the above mentioned developments and predictions in mind, this Special Issue aims to explore such multi-model approaches which are useful to manage the pandemic intelligently and efficiently.

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 monthly 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 1500 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.
