Special Issue in Sensors: Intelligent Sensor Systems for Environmental Monitoring 2020
The use of wireless sensor networks (WSN) is more and more widespread. Over the years, the evolution of technology has led to the development of integrated devices and systems for monitoring different environments. The use of sensors and their integration in networks facilitates the processes of gathering measures even in adverse environments. Furthermore, the combination of WSNs with software applications and intelligent algorithms generates interesting proposals where the collected data is used to make intelligent decisions to solve a possible situation.
There are fields of application where new proposals and solutions are required, where the development of low-cost sensors would enhance many aspects such as sustainability in the production sector and industrial environments, the improvement in the people quality of life and healthcare or the maintenance and protection of natural environments, among many others.
To highlight the latest developments in this relevant field, we welcome articles to our upcoming Special Issue "Intelligent Sensors Application in Monitoring". Both research papers and review articles will be considered. We welcome submissions spanning topics across sensor devices, smart WSNs, and intelligent sensors application for enhancing the monitoring tasks.
The list of possible topics includes, but is not limited to:
- Smart sensor applications for WSNs
- WSNs in Smart Cities
- Sensor network optimization
- New generation of communication technology
- 5G - WSNs
- Low-cost systems for intelligent monitoring
- Intelligent deployments for industrial and production sector
- Precision agriculture
- Underwater and marine environment
- Rural areas
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.
