Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will focus on technological strategies to convert advanced cities into “smart cities”, based on the many possible innovative usages of microelectronics, nanotechnologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, deep learning, Internet of Things (IoT) and network infrastructures applications. Part of these strategies is to develop new types of innovative techniques in urban areas, which are characterized, firstly, by a high level of citizen involvement in co-creating Internet-based applications in all sectors of the economy and society; and secondly, by the emergence of new forms of collaboration among governments, hospitals, research universities, and companies. Such strategies and the resulting “innovation ecosystems” are becoming increasingly relevant, given the growing economic and social issues and opportunities that cities are currently facing. Therefore, this Special Issue will focus on but not be limited to the following topics:

  • Microelectronics for smart machines;
  • Modern electrical microsystems;
  • Advanced mechanical microsystems;
  • Mechatronics microsystem design;
  • Smart miniatured sensors for fault diagnostics;
  • Power microsystems;
  • Smart grid management and energy control microsystems;
  • Intelligent biomedical microsystems;
  • Micromachines for healthcare;
  • Micromachines for smart water management;
  • Microsystems for intelligent transportation in smart cities;
  • Micromachines for communication systems.

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. Micromachines 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.
