Call for Articles

In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become an emerging technology, which is gaining popularity among researchers and practitioners. Due to its multidisciplinary approach, IoT has been phenomenal in revolutionizing many aspects of traditional healthcare paradigms. At the same time, traditional healthcare systems can no longer satisfy the needs of a continuously growing and developing society.

IoT is considered a bridging platform that connects the physical world and the cyberspace so that healthcare applications and services can be obtained with high efficiency and productivity. However, in-depth research efforts on systems, networks, and architectures of IoT for efficient large-scale deployments are still required to fill the gaps between satisfying quality of service requirements and cost-effective implementations and operations. 

IoT and Sensor Networks have emerged as a very effective service in the healthcare industry as the integration of IoT devices with medical applications improves its performance and quality, thus providing high value to patients. In the last two decades, IoT and Sensor Networks have been applied for various e-Health applications and thus improve the diagnostic tools, such as magnetic resonance imaging, and epigenetic and neuropsychological tests.

All submitted papers to this Special Issue (SI) are to focus on state-of-the-art success stories in various aspects of sensor networks and IoT, supported with E-Health Applications, from academic and industry viewpoints.
