Special Issue "Multivariate Data Analysis for Sensors and Sensor Arrays"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 August 2019.
Dr. Cristina Ariño
The increasing demand of further and complimentary information about a sample when (bio)sensors and (bio)sensor arrays are considered for analytical purposes has led to the use of multivariate data analysis strategies to overcome limitations found with classical approaches. In this direction, chemometrics allow the analysis of large amounts of data, and the possibility to extract meaningful data from complex readings, paving the way for new measurement approaches. These multisensory systems are based on chemosensors, with different selectivities towards analytes, providing complimentary data about a sample, which, after appropriate data analysis, allows the classification of samples and/or the quantification of selected analytes.
The great advances in the development of (bio)sensor arrays and in the analysis of data obtained, justifies the publication of a Special Issue devoted to the application of multivariate data analysis for (bio)sensors and (bio)sensor arrays. Works describing novel applications and strategies for multicomponent analysis using single sensors or sensor arrays, including electronic noses and tongues, can be submitted. Furthermore, manuscripts addressing the use of multivariate data analysis methods are also welcome, even not based on sensors or sensors arrays, but as long as those methodologies are suitable for those. Both research papers and review articles will be considered. We look forward to and welcome your participation in this Special Issue.

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 1800 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.
