Special Issue "Ambient intelligence Simulations and Smart Sensors: Ubiquitous services and social simulations"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 September 2019).
Interests: Service Architectures; Sensor Networks; Human-computer interaction and Prosumer Environments
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Ambient intelligence (AmI) is applied to many scenarios, ranging from smart cities to emergency situations, including health care, social learning, and so on. In these scenarios, users consume AmI services with context awareness features, enabling interactions with sensors and embedded systems, context recognition, and communications.
Research in services for AmI over the past 15 years have focused on the need for smart sensors and actuators that interact with the environment and users. With the advances in the field, AmI is pursuing growingly ambitious goals in terms of the size and integration of its smart spaces, the number of users, and the level of adaptation to them. The proliferation of technologies for the communication of sensors is making the necessary advances in the field of simulations, showing not only the disposition and movement of the sensors, but also the interaction of the devices with users or agents following a predefined or dynamic behavior.
This Special Issue seeks scientific works that contribute to facilitating the development, interaction, composition, identification, monitoring, and communication with smart sensors, as well as reflecting the participation of the users or agents.
Authors are invited to submit papers in any of the following areas (not limited to):
Ubiquitous Services in Ambient Intelligence Scenarios:
- Ubiquitous and pervasive services, networks, and applications
- Prosumers or end-user service or data provision
- Location-based services
- Cyber-physical systems
- Service reconfiguration and self-adaptation
- Home automation
- AmI scenarios’ trustworthiness using blockchain
- Awareness scenarios for emergency situations
Ambient Intelligence and Social simulations:
- Event prediction in simulations
- Agent-based social simulation
- Agent-based simulation techniques and methodologies
- Ambient intelligence (AmI) simulations
- Network and smart sensors simulation

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.
