A new generation of sensors and actuators for microfluidic control applications is becoming a reality. These new microfluidic elements are showing not only improved capabilities, but also enhanced functionality, e.g. flow sensors that measure not only mass flow but also fluid parameters like density and viscosity, or flow controllers where a flow sensor and control valve are integrated on a single chip. With the higher level of integration complete stand-alone microfluidic systems can be realized.
We are proud to announce this Special Issue entitled "Microfluidic Sensors and Control Devices". It is an effort to include the most relevant work on state-of-the-art microfluidic sensing and control systems, highlighting not only improved performance, but also the higher level of integration that allows the realization of complex and complete microfluidic systems in a single chip or package.

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.
