Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses the interconnection of devices that may perform sensing, actuation, storage, computing and decision-making functionalities. An important feature that can enhance the capabilities of IoT is related to the introduction of mobile devices (e.g., onboarding of manned or unmanned vehicles) that may collect measurements on-the-move and may interact with local clusters of fixed sensors and actuators. Different Radio Access Network standards, such as LTE-M, NB-IoT, C-V2X, LoRaWAN, SigFox, IEEE 802.11p, can address different use case requirements. In addition, these heterogeneous networks may be parts of 5G architectures that are based on SDN/NFV in order to enable the development of solutions using virtualized and softwarized network functions. In this complex ecosystem, Radio Resource Management has an important role to ensure optimum network operation and the provision of the required resources for various vertical application domains, exploiting enhanced context awareness.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Admission control schemes;
  • Resource scheduling algorithms;
  • Radio network planning and capacity dimensioning for heterogeneous IoT networks;
  • Integrated backhaul and fronthaul designs for massive IoT deployments;
  • Intelligent IoT algorithms using enhanced context information;
  • Mobile IoT QoS management considering 5G SDN/NFV architectures.

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 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.
