Sensors are everywhere. By the early 2020s, their number will have already exceeded one trillion. This development changes our society, e.g., the rapid innovation in wearable technology led to a societal phenomenon called Quantified Self (QS), a community of people who use the capabilities of technical devices to gain a profound understanding of collected self-related data. This huge amount of personal data generated every day may lead to a significant improvement of the accuracy of artificial intelligence (AI) methods, including machine learning and pattern recognition algorithms.
Understanding human behavior is crucial to personalized systems’ services for a wide variety of scenarios. However, a holistic assessment of human behavior and personality requires a proper combination of different methods. Multimodal sensing and context-driven information fusion is the key to allow systems to provide their services in the most suitable and efficient manner.
With this Special Issue, we would like to attract novel and original scientific contributions describing the newest research achievements in the area of sensor-based behavior and personality understanding using a wide range of AI methods, including pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms. We welcome both technical papers and submissions with a holistic vision, considering a more humanistic point of view. Finally, we encourage emphasis on relevant application domains of multimodal behavior and personality sensing.

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.
