The development of electronic tongues and, recently, noses has surged as popular trend in the last decades, with several groups worldwide preparing novel sensing systems. In comparison with the traditional analytical instrumental methods of analysis based in expensive and complex equipment, electronic noses are relatively cheap and easy to handle. Electronic noses usually integrate an array of non-specific sensors, together with statistical tools for the analysis of data. Ideally, each sensor differs in their response to the volatile compounds generated by the sample, creating a characteristic fingerprint. This kind of system can be applied even to complex samples such as food or biological samples for quantification, classification, sensorial analysis, and quality evaluation purposes.
This Special Issue is intended to be a timely and comprehensive Issue on recent and emerging concepts and technologies in the area of electronic noses including metal-oxide semiconductors, and polymers. Topics include but are not limited to systems based on metal-oxide sensors, polymers, color changes, other variations in optical properties, quartz crystal microbalance, or surface acoustic wave sensors. Furthermore, other areas such as data analysis and pattern recognition methodologies can be discussed. Research papers, short communications, and reviews are all welcome. If the author is interested in submitting a review, it would be helpful to discuss this with the Guest Editor before your submission.

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 2200 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.
