Activity Recognition is already a long-term research topic with papers dating back 20 years ago. With the advent of novel devices on the body, activity research recently gained fast raising attention. This special issue intends to collect the newest developments in this emerging area.
The MDPI "Sensors" Journal special issue is seeking for contributions to a special issue on Sensors for Activity Recognition. The special issue will accept all facets of research in the area of sensor-based activity recognition, including novel sensing systems, methods and algorithms for model learning, applications and case studies, as well as open challenges and future research directions. In this Special Issue, particular emphasis will be given to the evaluation of these sensors and models, including objectives, metrics, tools, procedure, methodologies.
Topics of the special issue include but are not limited to:
- Sensing devices, systems and hardware for activity recognition (e.g., using mobile, wearable, or environmental sensors)
• Sensor fusion in activity recognition
• Tools and algorithms for activity recognition with focus on sensing
• Real world application, experiences and evaluation with sensors for activity recognition
• Dataset acquisition, annotation and validation based on sensors for activity recognition, including specific topics such as noise robustness
• Crowdsourcing and participatory sensing in activity recognition
• AI based methods for sensors for activity recognition (e.g. Feature extraction, selection, and evaluation, transfer learning, (un/semi)supervised learning)
• Performance evaluation of sensors, and sensing in activity recognition
Selected papers presented at the Conference on Activity and Behavior Computing (ABC), the Workshop on Human Activity Sensing Corpus and Applications (HASCA) as well as the Workshop on Earable Computing (EarComp) are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal "Sensors". All submitted papers will undergo a peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in "Sensors" and collected together on the Special Issue website.
Conference papers should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper; authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter and include a statement on what has been changed compared to the original conference paper. Please note that the submitted extended paper should contain at least 50% new content (e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases) and not exceed 30% copy/paste from the conference paper.

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 2200 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.
