Special Issue Information

Recent advancements in mobile and ubiquitous computing have enabled the development of novel, context-aware computing applications. Additionally, the fusion of inexpensive and widely available hardware with advances in artificial intelligence have made practical context-aware computing widely accessible, e.g., in the form of intelligent assistants, smart thermostats, and mobile app-embedded functionality. This Special Issue examines the state of the art in context-aware computing and also takes a look into the future, focusing on technologies and applications that are envisioned to advance the sector even further.

The potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Data sensing and data management for context-aware computing
  • Algorithms for data processing and inferring in context-aware computing
  • Theory, models, and algorithms for context-aware computing
  • Software engineering models, methods, and tools for context-aware computing
  • Context-aware mobile and ubiquitous computing
  • Context-aware IoT systems
  • Context-awareness in autonomous systems/robotics
  • Context-aware computing in smart cities
  • Edge-/fog-/cloud-based architectures for enabling context-aware computing
  • Context-aware adaptive systems
  • Context recognition and context prediction
  • Context fusion/alignment
  • Crowdsourcing platforms for context retrieval
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence in context-aware computing
  • Indoor and outdoor positioning systems
  • Applications of context-aware computing
  • Novel sources and datasets of context data
  • Privacy and security concerns for context-aware computing
  • Socio-technical concerns, ethics, and responsible design in context-aware computing applications

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 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 2200 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.
