Special Issue "3D Printed Sensors and Actuators"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019
With recent advances in digital fabrication and materials science, devices capable of performing multifunctional sensing can be readily fabricated in cost-effective manners via 3D printing and related technologies in digital fabrication. This Special Issue of Sensors aims to provide a collection of approaches and strategies that highlight the advantages, limitations, and current challenges in this emerging field. The issue focuses on fabrication, materials, and applications in the field, including micro-and millifluidic devices, wearable devices, diagnostic tools, flexible sensors, smartphone interfaces, and so forth. Authors are invited to submit both original research articles and reviews.

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. 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 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.
