Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

A wireless multimedia sensor network (WMSNs) is a network of wirelessly interconnected sensor nodes equipped with cameras, microphones, and other multimedia devices capable of retrieving and processing video, audio, images, as well as other structured scalar sensor data.

WMSNs have emerged and shifted the focus from the conventional scalar sensor networks to heterogeneous networks with various multimedia devices. The capabilities of wireless multimedia sensor networks make them very suitable for large-scale monitoring systems.

WMSNs are able to store, process in real-time, correlate and fuse multimedia data originating from a variety of sources, and so they can be widely used in industrial surveillance, intelligent transport, logistics management, visual surveillance, telemedicine, structural health monitoring, emergency management, environmental monitoring and other hot research fields. WMSNs are also increasingly being deployed for surveillance and intelligent vision monitoring applications. Moreover, many emerging technologies are also suitable for application in this field.

This Special Issue aims to gather the latest research and development achievements in the field of Multimedia Sensor Networks for Intelligent Vision Monitoring Applications. Original papers that address the most current issues and challenges are solicited. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless Visual Surveillance;
  • Multimedia Sensor Networks;
  • Multimedia Signal Processing;
  • Industrial Optimization with Multi-Sensor Information Fusion;
  • Control and Signal Processing Based on Sensor Networks;
  • Distributed Vision Information Processing and Fusion;
  • Multi-Sensor-Oriented Multimedia GIS for Disaster Management;
  • Sensor Fusion for Human Activity and Behavior Analysis;
  • Object Monitoring and Activity Recognition;
  • Smart City and Intelligent Transport;
  • Smart Home Monitoring;
  • Surveillance Information Retrieval;
  • QoS in Wireless Multimedia Sensor Networks;
  • Congestion Control for Real-Time Multimedia Applications;
  • Wireless Edge Computing Theory and Applications in WMSNs;

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 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). 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.
