Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Research and development of wireless sensor technology has experienced an explosive amount of growth, with prospected applications ranging across all the domains of society from healthcare to industrial automation to space exploration.

Several crucial challenges in creating sophisticated wireless sensing platforms are the requirements of flexible, inconspicuous, and highly integrated structures that combine the sensing element(s), transducer(s), and wireless communication modules, including antennas and other electronics. These should integrate seamlessly with the application environment and operate effectively and reliably in it. Further, wireless sensing platforms are desired to operate at very low power levels and in some cases through wireless power transfer, totally avoiding batteries. Some of the extreme structural requirements of thinness, flexibility, and biocompatibility are underlined by the wireless health applications, where implanted and on-skin structures are used for physiological monitoring. Similarly, in any wearable devices, textile materials must be used to replace the conventional circuit boards, and the devices must endure repeated washing.

To advance the state-of-the-art in the field, we solicit original research contributions focused on novel wireless sensor components and platforms, including (but not limited to) sensors, antennas, circuits and systems, materials and manufacturing techniques, computational models and methods, and experimental demonstrations.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
