The rising demand for reliable, real-time, low-maintenance, cost-efficient monitoring systems with great accuracy is becoming more and more obvious in our everyday life. One of the main driving forces behind this is the Internet of Things. In this regard, the growing interest in analog and mixed signal integrated signal processing circuits in portable and wearable smart sensor-related technologies and interfaces used for healthcare and sports performance monitoring, environmental monitoring, agriculture, food control, or energy conservation purposes, is an important benchmark to satisfy these needs. This demand also requires ecofriendly integrated circuits and devices with voltage and power management. On top of that, other performance metrics such as low noise, small area, high signal-to-noise ratio, and so on become standard sensor circuit features. All the design concerns impose severe design challenges on researchers in this emerging field today.
This Special Issue aims to highlight advances in the development, design, implementation, modeling, and validation of integrated circuits and systems in smart sensing applications for the benefit of humanity. Authors are encouraged to submit both original research articles and surveys. Research articles should address the originality, as well as practical aspects and implementation, of the work in the field, while surveys should provide an overview and up-to-date information.

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.
