Special Issue in Applied Sciences: New Intrusion Detection Technology Driven by Artificial Intelligence
A smart city implements a wide range of electronic and digital technologies to communities and cities. Importantly these include wireless sensor networks that are capable of detecting states and events in the urban environment and intelligent and considered responses to this gathered data. Wireless sensor networks therefore play a foundational role in developing advanced techniques and implementing intelligent systems for smart cities. These intelligent responses are broad and include enhancing quality, performance and interactivity of urban services such as environmental monitoring and public health surveillance, reducing costs and resource consumption such as smart energy planning, or smart grids, and increasing contact between citizens and government. The latter raises many public policy and ethical considerations, related to gathering of data, algorithmic bias and privacy protecting of citizens. In relation to the analytics side there are real issues related to combining scalability, real-time processing, to develop subsequent decision making and recommender systems.
This Special Issue aims to address important features of these different layers within smart cities, focusing on the sensors, and data mining for decision support systems and recommender systems, which include use cases such as smart grids and environmental factors, without compromising privacy and ethical considerations. It solicits the state-of-the-art theoretical, as well as practical works on a broad range of issues important for sensor-analytic smart cities for researchers, developers, and practitioners from both academia and industry.
Topics of primary interest include, but are not limited to:
- Wireless Sensor Networks

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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. Sensors 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 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.
