Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Owing mainly to the recent advances in wireless communication and embedded computing technologies, billions of devices, from tiny wireless sensors to powerful data centre nodes, are now connected to each other over the Internet, forming what is known as the Internet of Things (IoT). At the same time, ambient intelligence (AmI), a new paradigm of human–computer interaction, powered by the developments in artificial intelligence, promises to transform our living environments into intelligent spaces that will support us in our everyday tasks and activities in an adaptive, seamless and unobtrusive fashion. Leveraging the enhanced connectivity of the Internet of Things and the growing capabilities of ambient intelligence technologies will lead to the development of a new generation of more advanced and larger-scale solutions for several application domains such as healthcare, education, culture, transportation, energy management, emergency services and others.

In order to maximize the benefits that the technology has to offer, one has to tailor ambient intelligence methodologies, systems and techniques in a way that realizes the notion of “from data to intelligent action”. Data from IoT sensors need to be analysed in an intelligent way, enabling reasoning about goals and actions to be efficiently communicated to the IoT actuators in a resilient and versatile scheme that realizes the smart environment vision.

The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest trends, research solutions, developments and applications that combine methods, techniques and technologies from the Internet of Things and ambient intelligence, demonstrating the potential of combining these two lines of research.

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.
