A smart city enhances the quality-of-experience of its stakeholders (service providers and customers) by providing ease of access to application oriented ubiquitous services. In essence, Internet-of-Things (IoT)-enabled devices can potentially serve as sources of information of interest (i.e., data) to the stakeholders.
With the rise in IoT, more smart devices will be integrated into smart cities, generating an enormous amount of real-time data. As the volume of the generated data increases, machine learning techniques (i.e., supervised, unsupervised, semisupervised, and reinforcement learning) can be employed to further enhance the intelligence level and the capabilities of various smart city applications (SCAs).
Recent research tendencies in IoT and machine learning for the development of various SCAs have demonstrated rich and diverse prospects, deserving further investigation. Thus, this Special Issue welcomes original contributions and review papers on applications of IoT and machine learning for smart cities, in the following potential areas:
- Smart (electricity) grids
- Smart health-care systems
- Smart transportation systems
- Smart security and surveillance systems
- Smart logistics and supply chain management 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 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.
