Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Among intelligent algorithms applied to the huge data provided by sensors, some are related to optimization and follow the Evolutionary Computation (EC) paradigm. They constitute a class of population-based metaheuristics that can successfully address large-scale and difficult real-world optimization problems (NP-hard) modelling sensor data understanding. While classical optimization most often requires objective functions to be differentiable or only apply to small size problems, as with exact methods, EC alleviates this requirement and allows to address a large range of applications with easy-to-implement methods, possibly executed in a parallel and distributed way, and providing high-quality empirical results.

The aim of this Special Issue is to solicit up-to-date contributions on the topics of Evolutionary Computation in the context of sensing technology. Sensors, and their digital data and devices, can include camera sensors, radar sensors, ultrasound and sonar sensors, imaging with probes, Lidar, and UAV sensors. The problematics include, but are not limited to, pattern recognition, perception with uncertain data, feature extraction, tracking and matching, optical-flow computation, speech recognition, and data fusion. Within EC, we include, amongst others, population-based metaheuristics, genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization, ant colony, memetic algorithms, and to a larger extent, neighborhood search, hyperheuristics, and hybrid methods.

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.
