Special Issue "Internet of Things and Machine-to-Machine Communication"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 February 2019
Low-power WANs have become a hot topic for M2M and IoT applications in recent years. This happened thanks to low-power consumption, secure data transmission and advanced protocols for wireless sensor networks. We expect energy efficient cellular networks in coming generations (5G) and ecological concerns along with economic issues lead to the evolution of new technologies for green communications in cellular networks. In this matter, energy harvesting and the capabilities of wireless sensor nodes to harvest energy is a promising way to achieve green communication.

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 bimonthly 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.
