Call For Papers


Dear Colleagues,

Since first coined 15 years ago, the Internet of Things (IoT) paradigm has continuously expanded to cover applications in many daily life settings. The paradigm now encompasses several technologies beyond RFID and WSNs, while the Internet pervasiveness continuously rises our expectations of permanent interaction with the physical environment, both local and remote.

Nevertheless, many issues still hinder the widespread adoption of the IoT paradigm. They include, for instance, cost, security and privacy, perceived reliability, maintenance, efficient data aggregation and processing.

The aim of this special issue is to bring together innovative developments in areas related to WSNs and IoT, including but not limited to:

cost (of node, energy, development, deployment, maintenance)
energy (reliability, management)
communication (security, resilience, low energy)
adaptability (to environment, energy, faults)
data processing (on nodes, distributed, aggregation, discovery, big data)
self-learning (pattern discovery, prediction, auto-configuration)
deployment (cost, error prevention, localization)
high-level methods and tools for node and application design
maintenance (troubleshooting, recurrent costs)
applications (both new and enjoying new life)

Both review articles and original research papers relating to WSN and IoT are solicited. There is particular interest for papers with advances towards overcoming the adoption barriers for WSN and IoT.

Dr. Mihai T. Lazarescu
Guest Editors


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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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).
