Call for papers | IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issue

Fluid Interfaces

Submission closes on: September 31, 2020

Thanks to my advisor, Pattie Maes, I will serve as one of the guest editors for the upcoming IEEE Sensors Journal Special Issue on Advances and Current Trends in Sensing Physiological Parameters for Human Wellness and Patient Monitoring.

Sensor technology and advanced sensing systems are today experiencing a radical transformation which is affecting the way to conceive daily life. Public and private services for healthcare, home care and telemedicine applications are some examples of possible application fields of sensors and transducers. Sensors and sensing systems may improve the quality of patient life by providing more and more efficient public services for better living and healthcare. It is expected that in the next future, healthcare system and people will make an extensive use of sensors and transducers to gain understandings on patients’ status during daily living activities and during diagnostic and surgical procedures. 

Advanced sensing systems and smart transducers will have a fundamental role in the life habits of the next future. However, several perspectives and open research problems have to be investigated such as transducers development, signal treatment, standardized communication protocols, security, architecture, technology, reliability, maintenance, accuracy, management. Research and development have an important task to improve performances and features of sensing systems by including issues such as green communication, reliability assurance, high accuracy and system maintenance. The present Special Issue aims at presenting and highlighting the advances and the latest novel and emergent technologies, best practices, implementations, applications and even innovative research outcomes concerning the design and the development of sensors, sensor networks, emerging biosensors, and wearable sensors form monitoring patients’ status in different scenarios (e.g., during diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, during daily live activities and during rehabilitation programs, among others). It will provide a forum for the research community to share advances and new ideas in sensing technologies.
