Smart cities are all over the place today. The initiatives to build better services for our citizens involve city managers, companies, research centers, and academia. One paramount part of the work in smart cities is linked to the utilization of sensors, either static (for measuring vehicles, energy consumption, air pollution) and dynamic ones (smartphones, wearables, floating cars, etc.). Open data and big data are also key components of the cyber-physical system; they represent a needed layer of information for the design, implementation, and exploitation of new desktop and app services towards a smarter city.
In this Special Issue we welcome applications using real sensed data of a city to create innovative original city services in the standard six axes of smart cities: Economy, People, Living, Mobility, Environment and Governance. We expect new final applications showing unseen efficacy and efficiency to deliver high quality services to managers and citizens based in intelligent systems. Thus, we encourage submissions using machine learning, bio-inspired algorithms, fuzzy logic, recurrent neural networks, extensions to traditional techniques, and artificial intelligence in general. We also welcome the utilization of new technologies to run these services, such as FIWARE, cloud computing, IoT techniques, microservices, spark, blockchain, and all the related ecosystem of tools helping intelligent algorithms to reach ambitious goals to transform our society for the good.
We welcome submissions with a holistic vision, not just focusing in one problem, but on its relations to other problems and their impact in the city. Both research papers and review articles will be considered. If you are interested in contributing to this Special Issue, we would very much appreciate receiving the tentative title of your contribution by email first.

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.
