Sensors are becoming ever more embedded in our daily lives. They are integral parts of the increasingly complex tools we use. As a result, we have higher levels of convenience, safety and efficiency. Advances in sensors sciences have enabled the creation of self-driving cars, remotely controllable households, fully automated production lines, and airborne drones. And there is still many more to discover.
Five MDPI journals cover this extremely active field: the two Web of Science-indexed journals Sensors and Remote Sensing which together have published over 7000 papers, Journal of Sensor and Actuator Networks, Chemosensors and Biosensors.
The MDPI editorial team is organizing the 4th International Symposium on Sensor Science (I3S 2015), which will be held in Basel from 13–15 July 2015. Three previous editions have already taken place: Paris (France) in 2003, Nanjing (China) in 2004, and Juelich (Germany) in 2005.
The Executive, Advisory, and Scientific committee members are currently assembling an exciting scientific program. Details can be found at: http://www.sciforum.net/conference/I3S2015/. We look forward to seeing you there.
