Special Issue "Augmented RFID Technologies for the Internet of Things and Beyond"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2019.
With the availability of inexpensive, low-power integrated circuits since the early 1990s, considerable research and development efforts have been invested in the area of RFID systems for ID purposes. More recently, researchers have been working consistently towards the goal of reaching beyond the ID in RFID, i.e., by integrating sensing capabilities in RFID tags to additionally monitor the tag environment, such as the temperature, curvature, or liquid level. Important results have been achieved in terms of cost reduction, miniaturization, and compatibility with complex systems and technologies. Meanwhile, pervasive and affordable computing and communication technologies have opened challenging scenarios for the Internet-of-Things (IoT), with its manifold implications and constant growth of applications, bringing technology more and more into daily life, and even inside living systems. Some crucial points have emerged, such as security, connectivity, sustainability, and compatibility with living systems. In this framework, this Special Issue calls for contributions presenting the latest research results on RFID technologies that push the state-of-the-art to move beyond the ID in RFID, to enhance the IoT, and to pave the way for its future steps.

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.
