Wearable electronic devices as a topic in this Special Issue have attracted extensive attention owing to their tremendous potential in Internet-of-Things, human–machine interfaces, and even healthcare applications. The representative approach to the realization of wearable electronics devices on a more practical level is divided into several methods: (i) enabling the brittle inorganic conducting/insulating/semiconducting materials to be flexible and even stretchable using strategies for a rigid-island active layer connected to wavy interconnects and a neutral mechanical plane, (ii) integrating commercially available chips such as central processing units, memory modules, batteries, and wireless communication parts with stretchable conductors supported on elastic substrates, and (iii) making functional materials intrinsically stretchable and autonomously self-healable using nano-/micro-materials in dynamically crosslinked polymer matrixes. In this Special Issue, we will cover various approaches to flexible and stretchable materials-based wearable electronic devices. We invite researchers who are working on deformable electronics, ranging from stretchable material synthesis and its device fabrication to process and system integration, to submit their high-quality manuscript for publication in this Special Issue.

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.
