Special Issue "Smart City and Smart Infrastructure"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2019.
Interests: smart structures; smart sensors; signal/image processing; pattern recognition; machine learning
Interests: structural dynamics; structural health monitoring; computer vision and deep learning for infrastructure monitoring; system identification
The rapid development of sensor technologies accelerates the construction of smart cities and smart infrastructures. Sensors can transform cities and their infrastructure into truly smart systems by providing essential information for their intelligent functioning and decision making. Over the past decade, tremendous research efforts have been devoted to developing a wide variety of smart sensors and associated data processing strategies, showing great potential in realizing the concept of smart cities and smart infrastructure. For example, smart sensors not only provide measurements of structural and environmental responses, but also assess structural health to assist with infrastructure maintenance. Furthermore, sensor systems are the key components of smart cities, such as management systems for water, energy, waste, air quality, and transportation. In this regard, the Special Issue, entitled “Smart City and Smart Infrastructure” aims to provide relevant information on recent research, development, and application activities on advanced technologies applicable for smart cities and smart infrastructures.
The theme of this Special Issue includes but is not limited to sensor development, information processing, pattern recognition, artificial intelligence, augmented/virtual reality, sensor-based automation, robotics, etc. Sensor development and the advanced processing of sensor data, which are the fundamental enablers of smart cities and smart infrastructures, are of most interest for this Special Issue.

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.
