Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce that the “Sensor Networks” Section is now compiling a collection of papers submitted by the Section’s Editorial Board Members (EBMs) and outstanding scholars in this research field. We welcome contributions and recommendations from EBMs.

The Section covers theoretical and experimental problems, especially considering the rise of Internet of things (IoT) applications that allow several devices to connect in a smart way. In general, this Section aims to provide researchers with a platform on which to publish their scientific work that can influence the scientific community as well as the general public.

We would also like to take this opportunity to call on more excellent scholars to join the Sensor Networks Section so that we can work together to further develop this exciting field of research.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Smart sensor networks;
  • Power consumption/energy-harvesting sensor networks;
  • Energy-autonomous and low-power systems for the IoT;
  • Machine learning on sensors;
  • Cross-layer optimization;
  • Wireless sensor networks;
  • Routing protocols in sensor networks;
  • Embedded networked sensors;
  • Software-defined networks;
  • Underwater sensor networks;
  • Distributed sensor networks;
  • Ad hoc networks;
  • Industrial sensor networks;
  • Sensor network security, privacy, and threat detection;
  • Data calibration and fault tolerance;
  • Sensor network data fusion and data aggregation;
  • Sensor node localization;
  • Medium access control (MAC) protocols for sensor networks;
  • Artificial intelligence in sensor networks;
  • Edge computing in wireless sensor networks;
  • AI/ML for integrated sensing and communication;
  • Applications of sensor networks in area monitoring, healthcare monitoring, habitat monitoring, environmental/Earth sensing, etc.;
  • Advanced and intelligent sensor applications.

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. 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.
