The focus and scope of this Special Issue (SI) is on advances in sensor applications for Early Warning Systems (EWS).
Although, Early Warning Systems (EWS) have been traditionally targeted at physical environment disaster applications, they are increasingly being deployed to detect and warn in advance about a wider range of events in other domains such as transport, maritime, medicine, finance etc. EWS applications include any warning or alerting systems, such as financial event prediction, vehicular collision warnings, alerts for likelihood of infrastructure failure, identification of early indicators for disease outbreaks in a population, personalized patient risk predictions and alerts for safety (e.g., animal and human overcrowding, stampedes) and security threats.
This SI targets innovations that support any of the main EWS functions: event prediction and risk analysis, monitoring and warning, dissemination of warnings and response planning.
It also includes new methods and designs for: systems based upon Internet of Things and Cyber Physical System; EWS processes including prediction and risk analysis; simulations and digital twins; sensor data acquisition; EWS sensor data fusion; data analytics, data science and AI (e.g., deep learning), data visualisation, and decision support. Note, accepted papers need to have a viable sensing element; they can’t be just about the data analysis part.

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 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.
