Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 August 2012 (extended)
[Special Issue Information]
The era of ubiquitous sensing has begun recently thanks to the proliferation of wireless sensors. For instance, modern smartphones are equipped with a variety of sensors that can be used to continuously monitor activities and locations of the users, and a rapidly growing number of sensors are embedded into the physical world for monitoring of our living environments. Ubiquitous sensing promises to enhance awareness of the cyber, physical, and social contexts of our daily activities, thus providing supports for services and applications that will change our lives.
This special issue aims to collect recent research results that address key issues and topics related to ubiquitous sensing. We recommend authors provide as much details as possible, extended long research papers or comprehensive reviews (tutorial and survey papers approximately 30-50 pages each are particularly welcome.
In addition to open submissions, authors of the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing (CPSCom 2011) and the 2011 IEEE International Conference on Internet of Things (iThings 2011) will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to this special issue for consideration. Manuscripts from the conferences must have at least 40% extension compared with the conference versions.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Participatory sensing
- Human-centric sensing
- Sensing with smartphones
- Mobile sensing
- Ubiquitous sensing with RFID
- Sensing for social computing
- Community Sensing
- Wireless sensor networks
- Cyber-physical systems
- Internet of Things
- Platforms for ubiquitous sensing
- Ubiquitous sensing services and applications
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to the website. 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 (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/sensors/instructions). 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 1600 CHF (Swiss Francs).
