Originating from the oil and gas industry, all variations of distributed fibre optic sensing, including acoustic sensing (FOAS), temperature sensing (DTS) and strain sensing (DSS), have made steady progress into new domains of long-range sensing applications. Optical interrogator technology, the basis for the distributed fibre optic sensing technologies, has advanced tremendously in recent years. Machine learning is widely considered a gamechanger for the detection and classification of events of interest in the complex FOAS signal. Implementation of real time processing and raw data storage is still challenging, as it must cope with the extremely high amounts of data produced by fibre optic sensing systems.
This Special Issue therefore aims to collect original research and review articles on recent advances, technologies, solutions, applications, and new challenges in the field of distributed fibre optic sensing.

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.
