Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Internet of Things (IoT) technology has the potential to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare services. The corporal detection devices in networks, together with sensors in our life environment, allow the continuous and real-time collection of an individual’s health information and their related behavior. Captured in a continuous and aggregated manner, this information must be exploited effectively to allow monitoring, treatments, and interventions in real-time.
The healthcare industry remains one of fastest to adopt the IoT. The main reason for this trend is that the integration of IoT functions in medical devices greatly improves the quality and effectiveness of medical service, providing an especially high value for patients with chronic conditions.
Recent technologies such as IoT have improved the most conservative diagnostic tools of the past decade, such as magnetic resonance imaging, and epigenetic and neuropsychological tests. Bionics, for example, is improved by IoT sensors for the collection of patient data from around the world and big data analysis is used to efficiently diagnose different types of diseases.
The MDPI journal Sensors is soliciting paper submissions, and aims to bring together researchers and application developers working on the intersection of IoT sensors in eHealth such as sensors design and development, distributed, cloud, internet, mobile, ambient, real-time, secure, and privacy-preserving computing related to eHealth. We also aim to explore the application of novel IoT computing results in eHealth.

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.
