Motivation of the special issue
Research is currently at a point at which the development of cheap and powerful sensor technology coincides with the increasingly complex multimodal analysis of human behavior. In other words, we are at a point where the application of existing sensor technology as well as the development of new sensor technology can significantly advance our understanding of human behavior. Our special issue takes up this momentum and is intended to bring together for the first time strongly cross-disciplinary research under one roof – so that the individual disciplines can inform, inspire, and stimulate each other. Accordingly, human behavior is meant in a very broad sense and supposed to include, besides speech behavior, the manifestations of emotions and moods, body language, body movements (including sports), pain, stress, and health issues related to behavior or behavior changes, behavior towards robots or machines in general, etc. Examples of relevant sensor technologies are EEG, EMG, SCR (skin-conductance response), Heart Rate, Breathing, EGG (Electroglottogram), tactile/pressure sensors, gyroscopes and/or accelerometers capturing body movements, VR/AR-related sensor technologies, pupillometry, etc. Besides empirical contributions addressing current questions, outlines of future trends, review articles, applications of AI to sensor technology, and presentations of new pieces of sensor technology are very welcome too.
Submission information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to the website. Once you are registered, go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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 via the MDPI's 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 semimonthly 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 2400 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.
