Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Long-term continuous monitoring and modeling of human motion could enable various new applications of Internet of Things (e.g., smart homes, new HCIs, patient/elderly care) as well as novel diagnostic tools (e.g., fall risk, dementia, rehabilitation). Therefore, non-intrusive, fine-grained, and accurate human motion monitoring and modeling have become essential for various smart applications. Current state-of-the-art solutions include various on-body and off-body sensors as well as multimodal heterogeneous sensing systems. The challenges include and are not limited to 1) limited labeled data, 2) limited devices/sensors, 3) limited computational resources, 4) personalization and user variance, 5) behavior profiling and anomaly detection, and 6) system quantification and optimization. Potential submissions could cover 1) the development of new sensors, 2) repurposing existing sensors, and/or 3) combining heterogeneous sensors to capture human motion.

Submissions could also cover methods and systems that acquire finer-grained human motion and/or utilize captured human motion to achieve behavior modeling.

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 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.
