Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Smart sensing technologies, including wearable sensors, ambient sensors, and smartphone sensor modalities, have been receiving increased research and commercial attention over the last 5–10 years. Indicatively, wearables are now already a strong multi-billion dollar industry, and along with smartphone apps, have been widely embraced by the public to keep track of fitness and health aspects. Similarly, other sensing modalities, including ambient sensing, can be used in innovative ways to inform healthcare provision and have enormous potential in transforming contemporary healthcare delivery. Collectively, the data that are collected from these devices, along with emerging advances in data science and machine learning, are leading to unprecedented opportunities in rethinking human-centered healthcare.

This Special Issue will focus on sensing technologies for healthcare to provide a state-of-the-art forum to report on both algorithmic-focused and application-focused papers, following the organization of the 2022 Pervasive Computing Technologies for Healthcare conference (https://pervasivehealth.eai-conferences.org/2022/).

We invite extensions of some of the best works presented at the conference (authors need to ensure there is at least 50% new content compared to the conference paper), along with papers submitted within the open call, taking also into account the target audience of Sensors.

This Special Issue fits excellently with the aims and scope of Sensors. It aims to provide a forum to document advances in sensor technologies and mining sensor data to improve healthcare. We aim to attract both algorithmic-focused studies and application-focused studies, as long as there is a clear link between the use of sensing technologies (interpreted broadly) and healthcare. Many of the key areas that we will be soliciting manuscripts from align excellently with the keywords that are identified in the formal page of the journal.

Prospective authors are encouraged to contact the Guest Editors in advance if they have any questions.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
