Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent technology convergence of sensor devices, networks, and communications has been creating new demands and opportunities for cyberphysical systems and their applications. In particular, the growing number of the heterogeneous sensor and actuator devices and the demanding networking systems of wired/wireless communications in cyberphysical systems have imposed several challenges in both traditional and new research issues. Moreover, human and nonhuman systems interact consistently and allow each to achieve a set of nontrivial technical goals. This Special Issue aims to gather recent advanced technologies and applications that address network protocol design, low latency networking, context-aware interaction, energy efficiency, resource management, security, human–robot interaction, assistive technology and robots, application development, and integration of multiple systems that support cyberphysical systems and smart interaction. Please note that only high-quality, original research papers that cover key issues and topics of smart interactive cyberphysical systems will be accepted for publication. Accordingly, this Special Issue will bring together the industry and academic people and highlight correct current and future directions in the areas.

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.
