Wireless sensor networks (WSN) have evolved over the last few decades due to the availability of low-cost, short-range sensors and their easy deployment. WSN systems focus on sensing and transmitting the real-time sense information of specific monitoring environments for back-end systems for further processing and analysis. However, due to the publicity of wireless communication channels, security and privacy concerns regarding WSN systems are becoming a hot topic of discussion. This Special Issue aims to solicit state-of-the-art research articles on advanced technologies for WSN systems, which encompass all types of research activities such as the design, development, challenges and application/service models. Moreover, we invite researchers to contribute review articles on the continuing efforts that will lead to future improvements in WSN security and privacy.

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.
