The 12th International Conference on Electromagnetic Wave Interaction with Water and Moist Substances—ISEMA 2018—will take place in Lublin, Poland, 4–7 June 2018, and is organized this time by the Institute of Agrophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences and Foundation of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
The conference will provide an interdisciplinary platform for sharing experience and discussing latest scientific results in understanding, development and application of electromagnetic moisture measurement techniques.
- Electromagnetic determination of physical properties of materials and standardization of measuring methods.
- Moisture content determination and monitoring in soil, snow, agricultural materials, waste disposals and other nonhomogeneous materials.
- Progress in measurement instrumentation and methods of broadband dielectric spectroscopy.
- Electromagnetic sensors in time- and frequency-domain for moisture content determination.
- Theory and applications of electromagnetic mixing rules and formulas.
- Dielectric relaxation properties of water in heterogeneous materials, including biological substances and tissues.
- Applications of broadband dielectric spectroscopy in precision agriculture, civil engineering, industry, etc.
- Remote sensing for Earth’s water monitoring.
- Computational methods of electromagnetic wave propagation in dispersive and lossy dielectrics.
- Integrated techniques using RF and/or microwave dielectric measurements with other methods such as impedance spectroscopy, THz spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, NMR, etc.

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 1800 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.
