Special Issue Information
Wearable and implantable devices have sustainable academic and commercial interests over the years. Some examples for wearable devices include vital signs monitoring such as smart watches, portable dialysis systems, and pacemakers. The artificial heart, artificial cochlear, and artificial kidney are the examples of implantable systems. Such devices/systems would not be possible without the use of micro-sensors to detect temperature, pressure, protein, ions, flow rate, occulation, bubble, pH etc. Correspondingly, several actuators are being employed such as micro-pumps, micro-filters, micro-valves, dielectrophoresis based separation devices etc. Most of these devices/systems are self-operated and self-monitored via signal processing circuitries, while some have wireless data transfer capability to the clouds for big data analysis and storage.
This Special Issue solicits review and original articles on the state-of-the-art sensors and actuators for wearable and implantable devices. We are also interested with the fabrication and processing of functional materials for such purposes, algorithms for the smart monitoring of the systems, and system-level development of the aforementioned clusters in the large network such as in hospital. In addition, articles that address the practical issues such as the signal processing circuitries, low power design, self-powered capability, bio-compatible and ergonomic packaging, robust manufacturing, comprehensive testing, and system integration for these sensors and actuators and their systems are also welcomed.

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.
