Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ability of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) along with the Internet of Things (IoT) to support a practically endless variety of human activities places both of them among the most rapidly developing domains of Technology with a continuously growing range of applications.

On the other hand, their utilization is obstructed because of not only the limited resources of sensor nodes in terms of energy supply, memory and processing, but also the inborn restrictions of wireless communications, regarding power, speed, and capacity of communication channels and their vulnerability to interferences and intrusion. Thus, numerous challenges arise. At the same time, emerging advances in various sectors of Science and Technology seem to be promising to support and enhance the operation of WSNs and IoT, thus triggering corresponding research trends.

The aim of this Special Issue is to house research works related with the state of the art, standards, experimentations, implementations, applications, new research proposals, and case studies regarding WSNs and IoT. Invited papers have to be original and neither published nor under review in any other conference or journal. Potential topics of this special issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Energy Sustainability in WSNs and IoT;
  • Energy harvesting/Energy transfer methods in WSNs and IoT;
  • Energy-efficient routing protocols;
  • Data analytics in WSNs and IoT;
  • Artificial Intelligence/Computational Intelligence for WSNs and IoT;
  • Cloud computing, edge computing, and fog computing for WSNs and IoT;
  • Sensing technologies and systems for wearables and implants;
  • WSNs and IoT in Industry 4.0;
  • 5G communication networks and mobile networks for WSN and IoT;
  • Optimization algorithms for WSNs and IoT.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
