Special Issue Information

Today, most computer systems from laptops to cluster/network/cloud/fog/edge computing systems are available for parallel and distributed computing. Distributed computing plays an increasingly important role in modern signal and data sensors processing, information fusion, and electronic engineering. Cloud/fog/edge computing platforms are able to provide a unified interface over heterogenous resources found in the Internet of Things (IoT)-based applications, thereby improving the reliability of cloud services. Further, fog computing supports Internet of Things (IoT) devices such as mobile phones, sensors, and health monitoring devices.

Thanks to the evolution that some artificial intelligence techniques are undergoing in IoT environments, it is possible to provide these new computational environments with a high added value and economic potential. Distributed Intelligent Systems have matured over the last decade and now many effective applications have been deployed.

In this Special Issue, we aim to explore how two emerging paradigms (IoT and Artificial Intelligence) will influence future distributed computing systems (cloud/fog/edge environments). Furthermore, we try to identify several technologies driving these paradigms and invite international experts to discuss the current status and future directions of IoT.

The topics of interest for this issue include but are not limited to:

  • Internet of Things applications
  • Industrial Internet of things applications
  • Artificial Intelligence approaches in distributed environments
  • Fog Computing environments
  • Edge Computing environments
  • Intelligent environments
  • Distributed Algorithms
  • Distributed Databases
  • Virtual Organizations of Agents
  • Distributed Architectures
  • Multiagent Systems
  • High-performance distributed systems

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2000 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.
