Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 8th FOAN International Conference on Fiber Optics in Access Networks will be held on 2–4 September 2019 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. The primary goal of FOAN 2019 is to bring together and present the latest research in the field of fiber optics technologies. The idea behind the workshop is to create opportunity to learn new things by gathering scientists and experts from academia, industry and operators in the field that will during the workshop share their knowledge, experience, and ideas. This Special Issue will contain a selection of papers submitted and accepted at the Special Session “Sensors in Broadband Networks” of the FOAN 2019. We warmly invite researchers to submit their contributions to this Special Issue. Topics for the Special Session “Sensors in Broadband Networks” include (but are not limited to):

  • Fiber Optics Sensors;
  • Sensors in Broadband Networks;
  • IoT Sensors and Actuators;
  • Sensors in Smart Cities;
  • Sensors in Home/Office Areas;
  • Sensor Phenomenology, Modeling and Evaluation;
  • Sensor Materials, Processing and Fabrication
