The science and technology of sensors has had a remarkable influence on smart wearable, implantable and disability-oriented devices and systems, as well as in the Agriculture 4.0, which demands smart sensors, and advanced decision support systems. Thus, both academia and industry who were presented their conference papers in conference events SPWID, ALLSENSORS, SENSORCOMM, SENSORDEVICES, SMART ACCESSIBILITY, SIGNAL, CENICS, ICQNM are invited to submit papers about any of following topics of interest:
Wearable devices; Implantable devices; Brain-driven devices (brain signal capturing devices); Wearable sensors, actuators, input/output devices; Smart textile technologies, textile sensing and feedback, e-textiles, smart fabrics; Eyewear mounted sensors and actuator systems; Wearable displays; Smart watches; Smart glasses; Smart night-vision devices; Smart audio drivers/amplifiers; Smart accompanying robots; Manufacturing challenges; Societal implications, health risk, environmental, food security, and privacy aspects
Smart/intelligent prosthetics; Organ replacement devices (artificial organs); Accompanying robots; Patient/citizen body-driven technology (self-adaptive devices to body's conditions); Devices for helping services for persons with sense disabilities (blind, not-mobile, etc.); Designing large-scale grids and clouds of smartphones for assistive coordination; Motion detection and activity recognition; Neurological disabilities; Personalization, customization and lifelong learning in activity recognition; sensors and actuators for autonomous agricultural vehicles and precision farming.
Design of smart clothing in medicine Virtual hospitals; Ambient-assisted living; Activity monitoring devices (walking, working, sleeping, exercising, …); Pain control devices; Lifestyle improvement devices; Alert and hazard situations monitoring devices; risk management in agriculture, food safety, logistic in agriculture, smart farming, collaborative agricultural machinery, and rational use of inputs for food production.

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 collection 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). Only extended versions of the accepted and published papers in those 8 events are considered in this collection. Please provide the IARIA Paper ID in the cover letter during submission. 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 monthly 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.
