Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Rapid advances in the manufacturing of smart sensor nodes have expanded the range of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) applications in Internet-of-Things (IoT) networks, such as monitoring and gathering information from public infrastructure, natural disaster relief, healthcare, smart homes, and industries in smart cities. Smart sensing and data fusion include various smart city applications, offering significant advantages over traditional networks, and leading to a revolution in the perception of information by self-organizing, distributed, low-cost, and power. Many factors may affect the design of a smart city network, including but not limited to cost, power, topology, scalability, reliability, energy consumption, and operating environment. Meanwhile, computational intelligence (CI) is a source of artificial intelligence, and includes techniques such as deep learning, evolutionary algorithms, and fuzzy logic. To address challenges such as localization, optimal deployment, security, energy-aware routing and task scheduling, and data aggregation and fusion, CI paradigms have been successfully used in recent years. In complex and dynamic smart city environments, CI provides adaptive mechanisms that exhibit intelligent behaviors. It offers flexibility, autonomous behavior, and robustness against topology changes, communication failures, and scenario changes.

This Special Issue expects innovative work to explore new frontiers and challenges in the field of IoT, smart sensing, and data fusion research, including optimal usage and management of energy resources, node deployment, applications, and services for scalable smart city networks.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
