The connected environment is enlarging rapidly due to the sensor-enabled growing smartness in devices or things around us in our daily life. The growing connectivity via computing- and communication-enabled smart devices is also increasing the number of heterogeneous wireless technologies around us, resulting in greater security challenges. The traditional cryptography-centric security techniques are becoming nearly impractical for these very small and smart sensor-enabled devices due to the high volume of computation requirement. In today’s growing connected world scenario, physical layer security is one of the potential solutions for sensor-enabled heterogeneous networks. The physical layer security focuses on signal level computation, identification, diversion, integration, and data analytics for secure localized centric communication. Signal level operating techniques such as beamforming, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT), multiple input and multiple output (MIMO), etc. have become highly potential research themes in today’s dense and heterogeneous wireless networking uses cases. You are welcome to submit an unpublished original research work related to the theme of ‘Physical Layer Security for Sensor Enabled Heterogeneous Networks’.

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.
