Special Issue "Integrated Circuit Sensors for Healthcare Sensing and Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 January 2021.
Interests: microelectronic circuits and microsystems
Interests: analog circuit design for optoelectronics and space applications
The new generation of smart healthcare relies on artificial intelligence, cloud computing and big data in order to provide early diagnosis of patient health, therefore enabling a more efficient medical care system. As a result, there is a growing interest and demand in integrated circuit sensors for healthcare sensing and monitoring applications. All the relevant health information can be retrieved by these highly integrated sensing devices since they benefit from a small size, a high accuracy, a low power consumption and a low cost. These integrated circuits should monitor not only key patient health parameters (e.g., heart rate, blood pressure, intraocular pressure and temperature), but also key environmental parameters (e.g., indoor air quality) and key blood parameters (e.g., blood sugar levels, viruses and biomolecules).
This Special Issue encourages authors from academia and industry to submit new research results about technological innovations and novel applications in the field of healthcare sensing and monitoring. Low-power, energy-efficient circuit and system design techniques for sensing physiological and physical parameters will be the focus of this Special Issue. Hence, contributions may include but are not limited to device-, circuit- and system-level techniques. Topics that will be considered in this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- Temperature and pressure sensors for biomedical application;
- Biopotential sensors (e.g., ECG, EEG, EMG);
- Biomolecular sensors (magnetic, photonic, impedance);
- Detection of bacteria and other contaminants;
- Bioparameter measurement;
- Microelectrode arrays;
- Gas sensing for air quality monitoring;

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.
