This Special Issue aims to provide an up-to-date and comprehensive view on the state-of-the-art of sensor science and technology in Italy.
The covered topics will span sensing devices and principles (e.g chemical, physical, biological, and optical sensors), sensor technologies (including miniaturization and nano materials), and sensor networks (including communication electronics, energy optimization, network design and data management).
The goal is to report novel, highly-functional sensors both as stand alone technologies and within a rapidly changing framework, where the massive dissemination of miniaturized low cost sensors opens new Internet of Things solutions and strong integration with disciplines such as robotics, artificial intelligence and big data analytics.
Individual topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Biological sensors
- Electrochemical sensors
- Precision agriculture
- Environmental and atmospheric monitoring
- Food quality sensors
- Fiber optic based sensors
- Nano materials sensing
- Gas sensors
- Optical sensing
- Remote sensing
- Distributed sensor systems
- Network performance optimization
- Sensor arrays, smart and interconnected sensors
- Artificial intelligence for multiple sensor management
- Wearable sensor systems

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.
