Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been rapid. Indeed, it is estimated that by 2030 over 125 billion devices will be included within the IoT sphere. IoT applications are becoming increasingly popular in the context of a variety of residential, industrial, and commercial sectors. Application areas/verticals vary between sensor networks for smart city infrastructure, smart home or building management, precision agriculture and forest protection and monitoring, private and industrial transportation, the Internet of Energy, etc. In this context, low-power, wide-area networks (LPWAN) technologies have to offer numerous solutions, while 5G mobile communications enable a massive IoT area and promise a very high density for a wide variety of application scenarios. However, the requirements for massive IoT applications with cellular IoT technologies in licensed spectrum bands, such as LTE IoT extensions NB -IoT and eMTC, have shown that the maximum scalability is limited. As an alternative to licensed technologies, LPWANs operating in unlicensed spectrum bands enable simple, low-cost network operation independently of commercial network operators. With this approach, the various IoT service providers are responsible for planning and operating the network with an unknown number of LPWAN network operators and subscribers in the unlicensed spectrum bands, resulting in questions about the performance of these deployments.

This Special Issue intends to bring together contributions from researchers in various scientific areas in order to define the importance of various critical components in the design and deployment of IoT applications based on wireless sensor networking technologies. We welcome original research papers, reviews, successful case studies, and high-quality and novel opinion papers on “Applications of Wireless Sensor Networks and Internet of Things.”

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. Future Internet 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 1600 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.
