Special Issue Information
The IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN family continues to evolve and satisfy new challenges arising from emerging applications (e.g., real-time gaming and video, automation control systems, etc.) and scenarios (e.g., Industrial Internet of Things, etc.). The new challenges are mainly related to the provision of extremely high data rates and ultra-low latencies. Moreover, the support of massive and heterogeneous power-limited clients for Internet of Things applications represents a new relevant challenge of the next generation of Wi-Fi technologies. The increasing demand for ubiquitous availability of Wi-Fi operating in unlicensed bands has led to the search for new unlicensed spectra, such as the 1.2 GHz spectrum in the 6 GHz band as recently ruled by the Federal Communications Commission in the United States. New unlicensed bands will create unprecedented opportunities for new applications that can leverage multi-gigabit links enabled by access to this new swathe of spectrum. The impact of the new Wi-Fi systems working at mmWave bands on new applications and scenarios requires more investigation in order to deeply understand if and when this technology can be exploited.
The Special Issue will address all research related to the challenges of future Wi-Fi systems.

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 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 2400 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.
