Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The quantitative assessment of human locomotion has been proved to be clinically useful to diagnose health-related symptoms and predict critical conditions such as the fall risk. The advancement in wearable sensor technology, in conjunction with intelligent algorithms, paves the way to novel possible applications for the pervasive monitoring of walking capabilities of people during their daily activities, i.e., in ecological experimental conditions.
This Special Issue aims at documenting the latest improvements in wearable sensory network, encompassing the diverse range of architectures, sensing mechanisms, and applications for locomotion assessment.
We encourage you all to submit your research for this forthcoming Special Issue entitled Wearable Sensor Network for Locomotion Assessment. Both reviews and original research articles are very welcome. We look forward to and welcome your participation in this special issue.

Dr. Vito Monaco

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
