Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are living in the smart everything and everywhere era. Many devices have been spread throughout our cities to gather data about the weather, pollution, noise and other physical measurable phenomena regarding the citizens' quality of life or smart city indicators. The sensor networks are providing the infrastructure for data management and for reliable and efficient communication involving all the nodes. This “smart” environment will be growing in the future.

Indoor scenarios have emerged as a new complex scenario for sensor network deployment, where applications involving indoor positioning are playing a key role. This Special Issue encourages authors from academia and industry to submit new research results regarding technological innovations and novel applications for the indoor positioning and navigation of sensor networks. The Special Issue topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Wired and wireless sensor networks
  • Optimization of energy consumption
  • Tolerance of node failures
  • Mobile and static sensor networks
  • Heterogeneity in deployed nodes
  • Scalability to large-scale deployments
  • Operability in harsh environmental conditions
  • Collaborative sensor data management
  • Cross-layer design
  • Security and privacy
  • Indoor navigation supported by (W)SN
  • Advances in available technologies: ZigBee, LoRaWAN,...
  • 5G applications for indoor positioning

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 350 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.
