Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Emerging Sensing Technologies Summit (ESTS 2018) will be held from 24–26 September 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.

ESTS 2018 aims to bring key researchers and industry personnel from Australia and around the world together to share and discuss the latest innovations, developments and applications in sensing technologies in areas relating to health and medicine, sports, agriculture, food, environment, mining, power networks, security, defence, distributed sensors and IoT. All those attending the summit to present oral and poster papers are invited to submit papers for publication in this Special Issue on any of the following topics to be covered at the summit:

  • Sensors for Sports, Human Performance, Health and Medical Applications
  • Sensors for Mining, Industrial Processes and Resources
  • Sensors for Food, Agriculture and Environmental Applications
  • Sensors for Smarter Cities, Security and Defence
  • Distributed sensors and IoT
  • New frontiers in sensing

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 monthly 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.
