Special Issue "Domestic Wireless Sensor Networks"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 January 2022.
Due to their inherent features, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are undoubtedly a technology that is gaining momentum towards ubiquity, with significant contributions of academia, industry, and standards development organizations. The last few years have seen an explosion of applications based on these technologies in a myriad of domains, notably in healthcare, security and surveillance, smart buildings, home automation, and assisted living. Despite current achievements and advancements, WSNs still face a number of challenges. One of the paramount issues deserving attention is that of resilience enhancement in the context of cyber-attacks and intrusion, which is related to the fact that WSNs are commonly integrated with Internet Protocol and connected to the Internet, giving rise to the so-called Internet of Things paradigm. In addition to security and privacy, computational capabilities, communication throughput, and sustainability cannot be ignored as fundamental challenges towards the consolidation of these invaluable technologies in our daily lives.
This Special Issue is devoted to gathering the latest advances in basic research and applications in the context of domestic wireless sensor networks, with emphasis on:
- Sensor node architectures, middleware, and services;
- Security and privacy;
- Reliability, quality of service, and sustainability;
- Methodologies and tools;
- Home automation;
- Smart home monitoring;
- Home energy management;
- Assisted living;
- Health monitoring at home.

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. Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1600 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.
