Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Internet of Things (IoT) is broadly regarded as the key to digitalized society today. Heterogeneous sensors with different abilities, such as different computing power, sensing features, elaboration capabilities, and sensing range, will be widely deployed in every corner of society, i.e., space, air, and ground, making heterogeneous integration a prominent feature of intelligent IoT. To overcome the high heterogeneity issues, new models should be developed to accommodate the large-scale geological deployment of sensor nodes and the universal network access of ubiquitous sensors. Considering the potential mobility, cooperation with mobile communication networks is a promising direction. To achieve these goals, novel architectures, protocols, and algorithms must be designed to intelligently adapt to the service requirement of smart applications. When the gathered information from multiple sensors is transmitted to a remote fusion center, caching and computing resources should be allocated to swiftly serve the data processing demand. The above issues challenge the practical implementation of future space, air, and ground integrated IoT. Thus, this Special Issue solicits original papers contributing to this theme.

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.
