The 2020 International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT 2020) will be held on 25–28 February 2020 at Hotel InterContinental in Bucharest, Romania (http://iwat2020.org).
The International Workshop on Antenna Technology (iWAT) is an annual forum for the exchange of information on the progress of research and development in innovative antenna technology. It especially focuses on small antennas and applications of advanced and artificial materials to the antenna design. At iWAT, all the oral presentations are delivered by invited prominent researchers and professors. iWAT has a particular focus on posters by which authors have the opportunity to interact with leading researchers in their fields.
Authors of selected high-quality papers related to sensors and sensor networks from the conference will be invited to submit extended versions of their original papers (50% extensions of contents of the conference paper) and contributions under the following conference topics:
- New directions and challenges in antenna design;
- Innovative antenna technologies for space applications;
- Metamaterial and metasurface antennas;
- Advances in RFID antenna design and characterization;
- Small antennas;
- Evolution of MIMO antenna systems towards 5G;
- Antennas for 5G;
- Metamaterial absorbing materials for RCS reduction and EMC applications;
- Antenna and RCS measurements.
In addition to the iWAT 2020 papers, other independent submissions are also welcome. The subject of these contributions should be in the area of Antennas and Propagation.

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.
