Special Issue "Ubiquitous Sensing for Smart Health Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 July 2020.
Interests: sensors; embedded systems; antennas; optics; medical imaging
Large volumes of information are generated on the basis of smaller, faster, and more pervasive sensing integrated within our current health monitoring systems. Such information holds the potential to yield proportionally large bioinformatics data sets for transformation into actionable medical knowledge. This knowledge aids in tracking and diagnosis of physiological issues, clinical decision making, early detection of infectious diseases, prevention, and ultimately, the swift analysis of health hazards.
In an effort to promote the proliferation of the aforementioned tasks, it is invaluable to explore ever advancing topics such as the design and development of ubiquitous and unobtrusive health monitoring systems, the types of sensors deployed within such systems, biosensing trends and developments, sensor networks, data modeling, algorithm developments, and more. This Special Issue aims to address these topics by focusing on novel solutions in this vast realm. Contributions that include but are not limited to the following topics are welcome:
- Pervasive and unobtrusive physiological monitoring solutions;
- Wearable health monitoring technologies;
- Implantable biosensors;
- Textiles and clothing;
- Internet of Healthcare Things (IoHT);
- Connected health solutions;
- Wireless sensing;
- Unconventional healthcare sensing;
- Multimodal sensing and analysis solutions;
- Body sensor networks;
- Longitudinal sensor data synthesis;
- Data modeling and mining techniques;
- Signal processing and deep learning in sensor systems;
- Data fusion and multivariate algorithm development.
Submitted manuscripts should present novel contributions highlighting innovative technologies and applications. Relevant topical reviews are also encouraged for submission.

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. Information 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 1000 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.
