Sensing permits us to get a better comprehension of the world we live in. A sensor network consists of a number of small, low-cost, low-power devices called sensor nodes, which have some sensing, data processing, and communication capabilities. Remarkable progress in radio-frequency and micro-electro-mechanical systems integrated circuit design over the last two decades has enabled the use of wireless sensor networks with thousands of nodes. In general, these devices are deployed near the phenomenon that we desire to monitor. Sensor networks find applications in various fields, such as health care, structural and environmental monitoring, energy-efficient routing, homeland security, etc. Ad hoc deployments or the use of mobile sensors call for the autonomous organization of networks with the capability to execute distributed data processing. However, the intrinsic restrictions in battery power of individual nodes raise significant challenges in the design and development of signal-processing algorithms for sensor networks.
It is foreseen that fifth-generation networks will provide significantly higher bandwidth and faster data rates with potential for interconnecting myriads of heterogeneous devices (sensors, agents, users, machines, and vehicles) into a single network (of nodes), called Internet of Things. Hence, this Special Issue aims at promoting advanced solutions for signal processing in sensor networks in order to provide adequate support for emerging technologies.

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.
