Aims and Scope:


There is a growing interest in applying technologies, such as the Internet
of Things (IoT), derived from the intense deployment of Wireless Sensor
Networks (WSNs) during the last few decades, in relevant fields such as
Industry 4.0, smart cities, and connected infrastructures. The use of IoT in
these areas can lead to significant benefits, but it also generates a huge
amount of data, which should be processed by a system to, in many cases,
detect patterns or optimize certain processes of interest. To this end, big
data, machine learning, and deep learning approaches are usually considered,
leading to more complex and powerful systems than those of previous WSN
applications, which also means new challenges to address. Moreover, for
critical areas such as connected infrastructures, dependability,
sustainability, and security issues should be addressed to ensure specific
application requirements.

In this Special Issue, we seek original, unpublished high-quality articles,
not currently under review by another conference or journal, clearly focused
on theoretical and implementation solutions for IoT, including intelligent
approaches (machine learning, big data, and deep learning), network levels
(edge, fog, and cloud), embedded systems, sensing devices, nonfunctional
requirements (dependability, security, and sustainability), deployment
strategies, and management platforms.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

* Smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0

* Connected vehicles

* Smart cities

* Cognitive computing and deep learning

* Big data Processing

* Edge computing and network intelligence, bringing the computation closer
to the data

* Dependability (real-time, reliability, availability, safety)

* Sustainability (low-power operation, energy management, energy harvesting)

* Security

* Distributed and embedded computing for networked systems

* Applications, deployment, and management

* Human behavior and context-aware aspects

* Prediction models

* Optimization and metaheuristics

Manuscript Submission Information:


Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and
logging in to this website. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
All papers will be 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 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 1800 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.
