Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to announce that a new conference, entitled “iWAT 2023-The International Workshop on Antenna Technology” and chaired by Professor Shuai Zhang and Dr. Zhinong Ying, will be held on 15–17 May 2023 at Aalborg (Denmark). https://iwat2023.org/ 

The International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT) is an annual forum for the exchange of information on the research and development of innovative antenna technologies. It especially focuses on small antennas and applications of advanced and artificial materials to antenna design. All papers will be peer reviewed on the basis of a full-length manuscript, and acceptance will be based on quality, originality, and relevance. Authors of selected high-quality papers from the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their original papers (50% extension of content of the conference paper) and contributions on, but not limited to, the following conference topics. In addition to the iWAT 2023 papers, other independent submissions are also welcome. The subject of these contributions should be within the scope of the conference topics:

  • SMALL ANTENNAS
    • Adaptive (smart) arrays
    • Antenna measurements
    • Antennas on/in IC packages
    • Body-centric antennas
    • Broadband antennas
    • Conformal antennas
    • SAR measurements of handheld devices
    • Millimeter-wave through Terahertz antennas
    • Modeling and simulation
    • Non-Foster/active elements
    • Reconfigurable antennas
    • Reflectarrays
    • Ultra-wideband (UWB) antennas
    • Wearable antennas
  • INNOVATIVE STRUCTURES AND NOVEL MATERIALS
    • Analysis and design of EM materials
    • Artificial magnetic conductors (AMC)
    • Electromagnetic anisotropy 
    • Electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) structures
    • Fractal structures 
    • Frequency selective surfaces (FSS)
    • Single and double negative metamaterials 
    • Electromagnetic skins: epidermal, flexible and stretchable antennas, sensing substrates
    • Metasurfaces 
    • Magnetic nanoparticles, graphene carbonnanotubes in antennas
    • MEMS/nano technology for antennas 
    • 3D printed antennas and structures
  • APPLICATIONS

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 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.
