Special Issue "Low-Power Sensors and Systems for IoT"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Interests: low voltage; low power analog circuit design; embedded systems; wireless sensor networks; IoT
Interests: microelectronic design; wireless communications, signal processing and instrumentation
The Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm is envisaged as one of the most disruptive concepts in the near future, with large technological, societal and economic impacts. Massive IoT applications involve a large number of low-cost devices, often portable/wearable, with sensing and wireless transmission capabilities. They often transmit small data volumes and have stringent energy consumption requirements. Some of these applications are smart health, smart metering, transportation fleet management, smart buildings, monitoring of large infrastructures or industrial plants, agriculture or natural ecosystems.
This Special Issue solicits innovative contributions from both industry and academia in the rapidly growing area of low power sensors and systems for IoT. The sensing devices demanded by IoT applications cover a wide range, including optical, acoustic, chemical, physical and electrical devices. Low power, energy-efficient circuit and system design techniques for sensor data collection, processing as well as wireless communications will be the focus of this Special Issue. Hence contributions may include, but are not limited to device, circuit and system level techniques.

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.
