Special Issue "Communications and Computing in Sensor Network"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
Sensor networks are changing the way people interact and integrate with advanced technologies. While up to a decade ago, sensor networks were essentially considered in the field of industrial applications and video surveillance, exploiting the classic wired and radio transmission technologies, the currently available technologies make it possible to extend their application to different areas, such as health, games, wellness, agriculture, advanced robotics, and the management of human activities in all their aspects. This scenario is often referred to as the Internet of Things, but this name may refer to extremely different scenarios in terms of scale, bandwidth, applications, technological level, social impact, transmission techniques and energy efficiency. However, these scenarios have in common the fact that the information exchanged is captured by sensors and made available through appropriate computing techniques, communication protocols, and ICT technologies. This Special Issue aims to collect valuable contributions in order to create a comprehensive picture of the current state of processing and communication techniques in the existing socioeconomic sectors. Therefore, what follows is an illustrative list of possible contributions. The Special Issue may also include different themes and technologies related to communications and computing in sensor networks:
- Protocols for sensor networks;
- Artificial intelligence in sensor networks;
- Communications in biological sensor networks, and different application scales;
- Data management and distribution in sensor networks;
- Distributed operating systems for sensor networks;
- Autoconfiguration of sensor networks;
- Sensor networks and the Internet;
- Orchestration of communication services in sensor networks;
- Innovative technologies in sensor networks;
- Intelligent use of the electromagnetic spectrum in sensor networks;
- New virtualization technologies and abstraction models in sensor networks;
- Performance models for communications and computing in sensor networks;
- Data management in sensor networks;
- Microsensor networks;
- Biological sensor networks and related applications;
- Interworking of sensor networks;
- Transmission technologies for sensor networks.

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.
