Today, there are 37 megacities with more than 10 million citizens and 220 big cities with more than 1 million citizens. Therefore, efficient and effective management and control of traffic congestion, energy consumption, waste, and pollution are resulting in severe economic and social implications for the citizens of those cities. The recent technology convergence of Internet of Things (IoT)/sensor devices, their networks, and the augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) using them has been creating new demands and opportunities to deal with those problems in smart cities. In particular, the growing number of heterogeneous IoT, sensor, and actuator devices in addition to the demanding wired/wireless communications in their integrated systems impose several challenges as both traditional research problems and new innovative research issues related to smart cities. Moreover, human and non-human systems based on recent AR/VR technology interact consistently and allow each to achieve a set of non-trivial smart interaction in smart cities. This Special Issue aims to gather recent advanced technologies and applications that address intelligent IoT/sensor devices’ low latency networking, context-aware interaction, energy efficiency, resource management, security, human–robot interaction, assistive technology and robots, application development, and the integration of multiple systems that support smart interaction in smart cities. High-quality, original research papers covering key issues and topics of smart cities will be considered for publication. Accordingly, this Special Issue will bring together researchers in both industry and academia in highlighting the appropriate current and future directions in the areas.
Topics for this Special Issue include but are not limited to:
* Human-centric context management for interaction in smart cities
* IoT/sensor management for advanced (mobile) ubiquitous applications for smart cities
* IoT/sensor applications and middleware support for smart cities
* Smart low latency and real-time IoT/sensor communication
* IoT/sensor energy efficiency
* Distributed sensing, actuation, control, and coordination
* Network resilience, fault-tolerance, and reliability
* Privacy, security, and trust management of IoT/sensor devices
* IoT-based blockchain technology and applications for smart cities
* Intelligent resource management for smart cities
* Functional computation and data aggregation
* Distributed algorithms and intelligent network optimization for smart cities
* Measurements from experimental systems for smart cities
* Prototypes, testbeds, and real-world deployments of intelligent systems for smart cities
* Smart AR/VR interaction for smart cities
* Immersive haptic interaction for smart cities
* Tactile internet for smart cities
* AR/VR devices and technologies integrated with IoT/sensors for smart cities
* Reasoning and learning techniques for human-centric interaction in smart cities

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 2000 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.
