Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce the publication of a Special issue of the Journal of Sensors with the theme of “Theory and Techniques for the Deployment of Future Wireless Sensor Networks in 5G and Beyond”. The wireless sensor network (WSN) paradigm is experiencing a dramatic change because of the evolution of the underlying networking technologies. New communications technologies rely on advanced methods that allow improving several parameters of interest. For example, adaptive beamforming on massive MU-MIMO systems allows handling several information streams at access point level, allowing the motes to experience a better coverage and noise rejection, thus lightening the power consumption constraints associated with the RF portion of the mote itself while increasing the overall network capacity. This Special Issue aims to investigate the theories and techniques that allow us to employ future networking standards on the deployment of efficient and reliable WSN. This is actually a multidisciplinary area of research and development, and your cutting-edge research products are welcome for consideration.

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 2200 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.
