Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Serious games are a relevant research field in several domains, with related applications mainly in health and healthcare, including rehabilitation, medical training and patient re-education. When pure digital games were initially proposed, the user feedback was limited, reducing the willingness of patients to accept this therapy/treatment option. To mitigate this limitation, the synergy between sensors and virtual and/or augmented reality is now a strong research topic. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the current developments in sensors for serious games. New prototypes, proof of concept of specific practical examples and exhaustive validation studies are of particular interest.

Authors of proceedings papers of SeGAH 2021, which will be held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, are therefore invited to submit extended versions of their papers with new input/angles to the Special Issue “Sensors in Serious Games for Health” of the journal Sensors—(ISSN 1424-8220; CODEN: SENSC9) with Impact Factor of 3.275. However, authors interested in extending their conference papers must be aware that the final submitted manuscript must provide a minimum of 50% new content and not exceed 30% copy/paste from the proceedings paper.
