Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The ability of wireless sensor networks (WSNs) to support a practically endless variety of human activities places them among the most rapidly developing domains of technology, with a continuously growing range of applications.

On the other hand, the utilization of WSNs is obstructed not only because of the limited resources of sensor nodes in terms of energy supply, memory and processing, but also due to the inherent restrictions of wireless communications regarding power, speed, and the capacity of communication channels and their vulnerability to interferences and intrusion. Thus, numerous challenges arise within the subject of WSNs.

At the same time, emerging advances in various sectors of science and technology seem to be promising to support and enhance the operation of WSNs, thus triggering corresponding research trends.

This Special Issue aims to support research works related to the state of the art, standards, experimentations, implementations, applications, new research proposals and case studies regarding WSNs. Invited papers must be original and not published or under review in any other conference or journal. Potential topics of this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • WSN applications;
  • WSNs for IoT;
  • WSNs for Industry 4.0;
  • Hardware platforms for WSNs;
  • Energy sustainability in WSNs;
  • Edge computing in WSNs;
  • Energy harvesting in WSNs;
  • Wireless energy transfer in WSNs;
  • Computational intelligence for WSNs;
  • Energy efficiency in WSNs;
  • Congestion avoidance and control in WSNs;
  • Connectivity maintenance in WSNs;
  • Coverage maximization in WSNs;
  • Multi-objective optimization in WSNs;
  • Routing protocols for WSNs;
  • Context awareness in WSNs;
  • Security and privacy in WSNs;
  • QoS in WSNs;
  • Data management in WSNs.

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. Electronics 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.
