Special Issue in Diagnostics: Machine Learning Approaches for Neurodegenerative Diseases Diagnosis
In recent years, many technologies, methodologies, and systems for the management of patients with Parkinson’s disease have emerged. Wearable sensors, in-house monitoring, mobile device sensors, active sensing technologies, and IoT devices merge in a holistic and versatile environment for monitoring and assessment of PD patients’ overall condition and motor symptoms, such as bradykinesia, tremor, freezing of gait (FoG), postural instability, and rigidity, along with drug-related symptoms, such as Levodopa-induced dyskinesias (LIDs), and countless additional clinically manifested comorbidities. Technological advances in sensors and sensing technologies, wireless communications, and textile industry, combined with state-of-the-art signal processing and machine learning algorithms, establish the ecosystem for a future patient-oriented, personalized, ubiquitous healthcare system.
This Special Issue aims to highlight the latest advances in sensing technologies, monitoring systems, and analysis methodologies for Parkinson’s disease. Our goal is to call on researchers who are engaged in the area of PD patient monitoring and assessment, based on sensing technologies.

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.
