Rapid advances in the manufacturing of wireless 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. Ubiquitous Sensing (US) including WSN and various applications, offers significant advantages over traditional networks, and it brought a revolution in the perception of information by self-organizing, distributed, low cost and power. Many factors that may affect the design of US include, but not are 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 US 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&US research, including optimal usage and management of energy resources, node deployment, applications and services in US for scalable IoT networks.
The particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- IoT architectures and framework
- Software defined network architecture integration with IoT
- Cloud and edge computing for IoT
- Embedded software and cyber physical system for IoT
- Device-to-Device communications for IoT
- Smart grid and smart factory in IoT
- Fault-tolerance in US
- Topology control and routing protocols for US
- Low-power, energy efficiency, and energy-harvesting in US
- Hybrid intelligent systems and applications for IoT&US
- Computational intelligence for IoT&US
- Deep learning algorithms for IoT&US
- Big data analytics and data-mining for IoT&US
- Security and privacy-preserving protocols for IoT&US
- Human-centric services and applications for IoT&US
- Integration of wireless sensor networks with smart city

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 2400 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.
