Sensors offer analytical ways to investigate the composition of food and its possible contaminants, in the control of environmental and pharmaceutical samples, and to provide new rapid tools for early diagnosis in medicine.
The aim of this Special Issue “New Challenges for Sensors Used in Food and Pharmaceutical Analysis, Environmental Control, and Medicine” is to present reviews and regular research papers that cover aspects of sensing with application in life sciences.
For this Special Issue, we are inviting original manuscripts within the proposed topics of the International Conference NT-SMT-LS 2020 (http://www.healthfoodenviron.unitbv.ro/2020/), held in Bucharest, Romania. A special discount of 10% on the article processing charge will apply for those papers based on presentations during the conference if the article is accepted by at least two independent reviewers of the journal. Other related topics will also be considered.
We hope to include scientific contributions from the various specialists working in different relevant areas of (bio)chemistry, (bio)physics, food control, construction engineering, computers and automation sciences, and pharmaceutical and medical fields and the innovative sensing approaches toward the improvement of human and animal health and quality of life.
- Analytical and bioanalytical methods for screening and diagnosis in environmental control, nutritional sciences, pharmacy, and medicine.
- Telemedicine and e-Health. Assistive technologies to the needs of the elderly, disabled, and chronic disease patients. Personalized electronic tools for effective virtual rehabilitation.
- Environmental pollution and health sensing, (tele)monitoring, and modeling of environmental risk factors.
- Innovative smart healthcare and biomedical systems: artificial intelligence, intelligent computing, and connected technologies. Computing and simulation in life sciences. Human–computer interaction.
- Progress in 3D bioprinting technology for tissue/organ regenerative engineering.
- Nanotechnology for nutritional sciences, environmental control, pharmacy, and medicine. Micro- and nanosensors.
- Occupant/worker safety and health in construction.
- New (bio)materials used in medical and electronic fields.

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 2000 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.
