The current model of healthcare in the world is subject to unprecedented challenges. An ageing population, inadequacies of medical personnel, the impact of lifestyle factors and increasing expenditure mean that the existing approaches may become unsustainable. This gives an impetus to promote sensor networks and technology for healthcare monitoring. More importantly, the sensor data obtained from healthcare monitoring must be further analyzed and interpreted to ultimately make decisions.
The objective of this Special Issue is to disseminate the latest, high quality, interdisciplinary research in the domain of sensor networks and technology for healthcare monitoring and to propose methodology for decision making. This will provide a smart solution to relieve the workload of medical personnel and increase the quality of life of human beings.
For this Special Issue, we welcome articles, reviews and short communications relating to the state-of-the-art, system architecture, and artificial intelligence. A pilot study or large-scale deployment is extremely welcome. Examples of topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Studies on sensor networks and technology for healthcare monitoring
- Coexistence of wired and wireless sensor networks for the healthcare system
- Wearable sensing for healthcare
- Case studies (including a pilot study) in medical industries
- Healthcare monitoring and its decision-making process
- Internet-of-Things, big data analysis in sensor networks and technology for healthcare
- Sensor network optimization in the healthcare system
- Critical applications in healthcare sensor networks
- Sensors for ambient-assisted-living

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 1800 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.
