Special Issue in Sensors: The Architectures, Systems, and Applications of Internet of Things for Smart Cities
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network connecting billions of physical objects and devices that are capable of sensing and sharing data between themselves and the Internet. Hence, one of the core goals of an IoT system is to provide a digital overlay of information over the physical world, in domains such as industries, smart cities, transportation, and energy. Thus, sensing and embedded systems are key enabling technologies for the IoT vision.
The increasing popularity of IoT applications is driving an exponential growth in connected IoT devices and generated data. As a result, the current IoT system architectures and communication technologies are facing significant technical challenges to meet the requirements of connectivity, scalability, and interoperability, as well as to efficiently support the transmission and processing of large volumes of data. Hence, there is a need for new enabling technologies, end-to-end architectures, and data management platforms.
This Special Issue aims to foster the dissemination of high-quality research with emerging ideas, approaches, theories, and practice to resolve the challenging issues related to the development of IoT ecosystems. Comprehensive review papers on the emerging research trends in the IoT domain are highly encouraged.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Sensor technologies and protocols for IoT systems
- IoT technologies and wireless sensor networks for smart cities and smart homes
- IoT in 5G and beyond 5G networks
- Edge, fog, and cloud computing architectures for IoT systems
- SDN and NFV solutions for IoT systems
- Mission-critical IoT applications like smart grid, healthcare, connected vehicles, and so on
- Security, privacy, and trust management in IoT
- IoT solutions for crowdsourcing and crowd-sensing.

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.
