Special Issue "Advanced Algorithms for Mobile Sensing: from Wireless Sensor Networks to Mobile Crowd Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2016).
In recent years we have witnessed tremendous development in wireless sensor networks, which enables ubiquitous monitoring of the physical environment. Furthermore, with the rapid development of mobile devices and computing capabilities, mobile sensing has increasingly emerged as one of the most important technologies to develop large-scale sensing solutions. Smartphones equipped with multiple sensors are becoming the central personal sensing device in people’s everyday life. Mobile crowd sensing leverages the power of ordinary people to contribute data from their mobile devices and aggregates and fuses the data for intelligence sensing tasks. The combination of traditional wireless sensor networks and emerging mobile crowd sensing can further enhance novel large-scale sensing applications and systems into every sector of our economy.
The unique characteristics of mobile sensing also pose considerable challenges on the design of large-scale sensing systems. Some research efforts on mobile sensing are in progress, including mobile sensor networks, mobile crowd sensing, mobile social networks, participatory sensing, urban sensing, vehicular sensor networks, etc. In many of these areas or scenarios, different analytical models as well as advanced algorithms are desired for performance optimization. This Special Issue intends to bring together researchers to report their latest progress in mobile sensing or large-scale sensor networking research from the algorithmic perspective and exchange experiences in the development of advanced algorithms for large-scale sensing systems. Research articles with new contributions as well as comprehensive reviews are solicited.

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 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.
