Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have emerged as a cornerstone technology in the era of pervasive computing, enabling seamless data collection and transmission in an extensive range of applications; this encompasses areas such as environmental monitoring, intelligent healthcare systems and smart cities. The convergence of WSNs with advanced Internet of Things (IoT) computing paradigms such as Edge, Fog and Cloud, has revealed and stimulated unprecedented opportunities for innovation in various domains. This Special Issue (SI) aims to explore the frontiers of research and development in Advanced Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) within the context of IoT smart computing systems.

The integration of WSNs with IoT computing technologies has led to transformative advances in various domains, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Intelligent sensing and ubiquitous systems
  • Smart cities and sustainable urban planning
  • Environmental monitoring and protection
  • Intelligent home healthcare and telemedicine systems
  • Precision agriculture and sustainable agri-tech solutions
  • Structural health monitoring and infrastructure management
  • Industry automation and process control
  • Disaster management and emergency response

This Special Issue aims to collect high-quality research papers that address various aspects of advanced WSN applications, including the following:

  • Novel architectures and protocols for WSN-enabled IoT systems
  • Edge computing frameworks using WSNs for data collection, processing and analysis
  • Integration of machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques into WSNs and IoT computing systems
  • Applications of WSNs in smart sensing ubiquitous systems
  • Energy-efficient and resource-aware algorithms for WSN deployment and operation
  • Security and privacy considerations and concerns in WSN-enabled IoT ecosystems
  • Case studies and practical implementations of WSN-based solutions in real-world IoT scenarios
  • Advances in scalability, reliability and resilience of WSNs in dynamic and heterogeneous IoT environments
  • Next generation WSN-solutions for primary sector industries enabling sustainable farming, fishing, forestry and mining
  • Future applications of WSNs on smart and sustainable cities
  • Advances in the use of WSNs for smart home assisted living solutions
  • The role of WSNs in the design and implementation of disaster and emergency management systems
  • Advanced combination of WSNs and Artificial Intelligence in the scope of industry and automation scenarios

We invite researchers, academics and practitioners to submit original research papers, review articles and case studies that address the above or akin topics and application areas. Submissions should present significant insights, innovative methodologies, and experimental validations that may contribute to the state of the art in Advanced Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) within the context of IoT computing systems and applications.

We look forward to receiving your valuable contributions and fostering meaningful discussions to advance the development and adoption of cutting-edge WSN 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
