Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
At present, medical and industrial applications use many different sensors, because it is increasingly common to collect as much information as possible from our systems. New technologies allow us to analyze these data and obtain relevant information from them. From this analysis, it is possible to support important decision making that leads to higher productivity and more efficient operations.
In all these applications, we can collect the information from physical sensors, but it is also very common to connect some sensors of our systems to the Internet. The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a revolution but also a real trend in the software industry. The use of the IoT implies a fusion between the digital and the physical worlds, involving sensors that are embedded in all kinds of devices interconnected between them and increasing the amount of data to analyze. To analyze these large volumes of data from multiple sources, we need to use special mathematical methods, algorithms, and techniques which help us to understand these data.
This Special Issue encourages authors from academia, medicine, and industry to submit new research results from the use of multiple sensors in applications of these areas. The sensors can be directly connected to the system, but they can also be connected to the Internet. The topics of this Special Issue will include, but are not limited to:
- Sensors for medical applications;
- IoT environments for medical applications;
- Sensors for industrial applications;
- IoT environments for industrial applications;
- Mathematical algorithms and techniques to analyze medical sensor data;
- Mathematical algorithms and techniques to analyze industrial sensor data.

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 2000 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.
