Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last several years have witnessed major advancements in the development of sensor technologies and wearable devices with the goal of collecting various types of data in many application domains. Based on such technologies, many commercial products have swamped the market and found their way on the wrists, ancles, and belts of many users. Although these developments are certainly welcomed, there is so much left to be accomplished in order to take full advantage of the data gathered by such devices. The most critical missing component is the lack of advanced data analytics. In the case of health monitoring, like many aspects of healthcare, the focus has been primarily on producing devices with data collection capabilities rather than developing advanced models for analyzing the available data.

In this Special Issue of Sensors, we attempt to fill this gap by soliciting papers related to data analytics that connect mobility and heath. We invite papers related to algorithms, tools, and approaches that can be applied to analyze big mobility data and reveal new useful health-related features. We also welcome papers related to how mobility data can be integrated with biological and medical data to obtain accurate signals that can be used to diagnose various health conditions and assess the effectiveness of different medical treatments. We hope the selected articles will pave the way towards a new decision support system that leads to new discoveries in biomedical research and healthcare applications.

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.
