In this year we are very pleased to present two special issues on Physical and Chemical Sensors & Wireless Sensor Networks of the IFSA’s Sensors and Transducer journal (ISSN 1726-5479), which are based on 40 papers carefully selected from the reviewed papers. Many of them have been selected as "Best Papers" based on the reviews of the original submission, the camera-ready version, and the presentation during the conferences. All selected papers were presented at The 2nd International Conference on Sensor Device Technologies and Applications (SENSORDEVICES’ 2011), The 5th International Conference on Sensor Technologies and Applications (SENSORCOMM’ 2011), The 4th International Conference on Advances in Circuits, Electronics and Micro-electronics (CENICS’ 2011) and The 1st International Workshop on Sensor Networks for Supply Chain Management (WSNSCM’ 2011). These conferences have taken place under the annual conference umbrella NetWare 2011, 21-27 August 2011 in Nice/Saint Laurent du Var, French Riviera, France. The NetWare 2011 included also The 5th International Conference on Emerging Security Information, Systems and Technologies (SECURWARE’ 2011), The 4th International Conference on Advances in Mesh Networks (MESH’ 2011), The 3rd International Conference on Advances in Future Internet (AFIN’ 2011), The 4th International Conference on Dependability (DEPEND’ 2011) and The 5th International Conference on Quantum, Nano and Micro Technologies (ICQNM 2011) [1, 2]. There were 783 submitted papers, 256 from which were accepted after review. The accepted papers withdrawn after the notification are considered as accepted in these statistics. The "conditionally accepted papers" that are rejected after the second review are considered as rejected in these statistics. The conferences were attended by 323 attendees from 49 countries.


The first special issue (Vol.14-1) contains articles about physical, chemical sensors, nanosensors and biosensors, and the second special issue (Vol.14-2) contains articles about wireless sensor networks.


IARIA conferences enjoy the opinion of a well-established annual forums were authors set up scientific contacts, discuss and present high quality reports on the state-of-the-art uses and developments of various, emerging scientific areas. In addition to plenary sessions each of conferences and the conference umbrella in the whole have included four tutorials, two panel discussions and poster sessions. Four keynote speakers – experts in appropriate sensor related areas, have been invited by organizers. The video from the NetWare 2011 is available at Internet-based Television Network [2].


These two special journal’s issues presents the extended versions of the conference papers, which are focused on various physical, chemical sensors, biosensors, nanosensors, wireless sensor networks, sensor interfacing and signal conditioning circuits, smart and intelligent sensors and sensor systems.


We are very happy to be able to offer the readers of the Sensors & Transducers journal such a diverse Special Issues both in terms of its topical coverage and geographic representation. We do hope that the journal readers will find it interesting and useful in their research and practical engineering work.


We would like to thank all the participants, organizers and members of various committees for their commitment and hard work to make IARIA Conferences so successful. We would like also to extend our wholehearted thanks to all the authors who have contributed their work to these Special Issues. Hope you will enjoy these journal’s special issues.


We sincerely hope to meet all authors and many journal’s readers at NetWare 2012, which will take place on 19-24 August 2012 in Rome, Italy [3]. In addition to regular and poster sessions, it will also included Work in Progress and Research Ideas tracks. Please see details at [4, 5]. Please do not miss a submission deadline: 5 April 2012.
