Special Issue in Sensors: Selected Papers from the 2019 International Conference on Smart Sensors—ICSS 2019
The 2019 International Conference on Smart Sensors (ICSS) will be held from 3–4 June 2019 at Sheraton, Hsinchu, Taiwan. As with last year, the conference is a joint event of the 24th Symposium of Association for Chemical Sensors and the 22nd Nano Engineering and Microsystem Technology Conference.
The ICSS is a premier conference in Taiwan focusing on the promotion of advanced research and industrial collaboration. We encourage contributions of significant and original works on sensors, microfluidics and MEMS/NEMS. Manuscripts submitted to the journal Micromachines should be extended by at least 40% compared with the conference paper. The conference will cover the following main topics:
A. Chemical Sensors
A1. Transducer-Based Chemical Sensors
A2. Emerging Sensing Technologies
A3. Environmental, Energy, Agricultural, etc. Chemical Sensors
B1. Nanomaterial-Based Sensors
B2. Food, Pharmaceutical, Clinical, etc. Biosensors
B3. Semiconductor and Electric Biosensing Technologies
C. Microfluidics for Medical Applications
C1. Lab-on-a-chip Microdevices
C2. Portable and Emerging Microfluidics Technologies
C3. Medical Application Techniques Classified by Clinical Subjects
D. MEMS and NEMS Fabrication
D1. Material and Device Characterization
D2. Mechanical/Physical Sensors and Microsystems
D3. Micro- and Nanoengineering
E1. Micro and Nano Fluidic Devices and Systems
E2. Microfluidics for Separations, Reactions, and Synthesis
E3. Fundamentals in Microfluidics and Nanofluidics
F. Applied MEMS and Applied Microfluidics
F1. Energy Harvesting/Power/RF/Optical/Acoustic MEMS
F2. BioMEMS and Integrated Microfluidic Platforms
F3. Enabling Technologies for IoT Applications
The papers attracting the most interest at the conference, or that make novel contributions, will be selected for publication in Micromachines. These papers will be peer-reviewed for validation of the research results, developments and applications.

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. Micromachines 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 1800 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.
