Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, the remote sensing community has gathered an unprecedented amount of data, which is boosting the development of an increasing number of artificial intelligence (AI)-based applications for monitoring environments and data analysis in military and civilian domains. Leveraging this wealth of data, researchers have increasingly turned to advanced AI techniques to enhance target recognition and process remote sensing data effectively.

This Special Issue aims to gather cutting-edge research and innovative methodologies in the field of target recognition, with a particular emphasis on the combination of AI and remote sensing applications. This issue naturally covers a broad range of topics on theoretical, application-oriented, and experimental studies in remote sensing and AI-based target recognition, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Deep learning algorithms for target detection and classification
  • Detection and tracking of objects by remote sensing
  • AI operated in remote sensing using data from different sensors (e.g. camera, lidar, radar and sonar)
  • Feature extraction and representation learning from remote sensing data
  • Fusion of multi-modal and multi-temporal remote sensing data
  • Learning transfer and domain adaptation in remote sensing applications
  • Novel applications of AI in remote sensing for environmental monitoring, climate, disaster management, urban planning, agriculture, etc.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
