Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Humans spend up to 80% of their lives in built and living environments. New technological research focuses on the design, implementation, and development of both built and living environments considering the occupants’ needs, well-being, and surroundings, as well as climate change impacts and energy-saving solutions. In light of these trends, this Special Issue welcomes papers presenting innovative metrology techniques for designing, constructing, and operating an efficient, safe, comfortable, and healthy built environment, including active and assisted living (AAL). Innovative solutions can be based on the IoT paradigm, BIM, sensors and sensor networks, cutting-edge signal and image processing, structural health monitoring (SHM) techniques, data analytics, artificial intelligence, and interoperability standards.

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. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
