Call For Papers


Dear Colleague,

Recent advances in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) have led to several emerging applications in pervasive medical care. A combination of Wireless Body Area Networks (WBANs) with wearable or implantable sensors and contextual information could potentially advance medical monitoring, diagnosis, treatment and patient care. There are numerous challenges to realization of pervasive medical care. These challenges include interoperability of communication interface, wearable computing, sensor data fusion, security and privacy of sensitive data, reliability of communication protocols, energy efficiency of sensor devices, decision support systems and user-friendly interfaces, etc. Although significant progress has been made in the last few years, more work is needed for the pragmatic realization of this technology. This special issue seeks original contributions addressing recent developments, medical sensor devices, techniques, applications, algorithms, architectures and implementations in pervasive medical care using WSNs. In particular, this special issue solicits original unpublished work concerning (but without being limited to) the following topics:

Wearable sensor devices in medical monitoring
Algorithms, communication protocols and architectures for medical monitoring applications
Integration of smart application for pervasive medical care
Security, integrity and privacy of medical data
Management of Wireless Body Area Sensor Networks
Interoperability of WSN/WBAN technologies with clinical environments
Trade-offs for energy efficiency and quality of service (QoS) in WBAN/WSNs in pervasive medical care
Decision support systems for analysis of data in pervasive medical care
Novel architectures and systems for pervasive health care services

Dr. Nauman Aslam
Guest Editor


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).
