The integration of chemical sensors in arrays has shown to be an advantageous solution for the analysis of complex chemical matrices. This approach introduced a change of paradigm in the sensors design, favoring the development of devices where a wide range of interactions, from specific to non-specific, might cooperate to the translation of chemical patterns, made of several unknown compounds, into sensors signals patterns.
After the analogies with some aspects of “chemical” senses, olfaction and taste, these arrays are popularized as electronic noses (vapor phase sensors) and electronic tongues (liquid phase sensors).
The concept has been applied to many different fields, and performances have been boosted both by the exploitation of consumer electronic devices for the development of cheap sensing platforms and by the preparation of nanostructured sensing materials.
In this Special Issue, you are invited to submit contributions describing the development of artificial olfaction and taste systems, from optimized sensors design to system integration and data analysis, together with their application in different fields, ranging from environmental control to medical diagnosis.

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.
