Wireless communication is making inroads into every aspect of human life and it is becoming an integral part of our daily activities. Miniaturization of electronic devices and advanced research and development in body-worn hardware, embedded software, digital signal processing and biomedical engineering have made the concept of wearable electronics practically possible. Body-worn electronic units and devices can be immediately related to many different wireless technologies and they are closely affiliated to potential fourth generation systems; therefore making their prospective applications numerous. To ensure the efficient performance of such unique systems, the radio propagation channels and antenna systems need to be characterized and modeled for developing and designing competent and reliable communication systems with respect to different environments. Interactions between devices and humans and vice versa need to be further explored and analyzed. This is in addition to research work required in the domain of textile electronics and flexible materials necessary to realize such novel architectures.

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 1400 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.
