Bullet  Sensors & Transducers journal: Call for Articles


Sensors & Transducers is established, international, peer-reviewed (blind peer review), open access journal (print and electronic). It provides the best platform for the researchers and scientist worldwide to exchange their latest findings and results in science and technology of physical, chemical sensors and biosensors. The journal publishes original results of scientific and research works related to strategic and applied studies in all aspects of sensors: reviews, regular research and application specific papers, and short notes. In comparison with other sensors related journals, which are mainly focused on technological aspects and sensing principles, the Sensors & Transducers journal significantly contributes in areas, which are not adequately addressed in other journals, namely: frequency (period), duty-cycle, time-interval, PWM, phase-shift, pulse number output sensors and transducers; sensor systems;  digital, smart, intelligent sensors and systems designs; signal processing and ADC in sensor systems; advanced sensor fusion; sensor networks; applications, etc. By this way the journal significantly enriches the appropriate databases of knowledge. Published articles (article by article) are available for free download immediately after publication without any embargo period and registration.



Topics of Interest


Include, but are not restricted to:

  • Physical, chemical and biosensors

  • Digital, frequency, period, duty-cycle, time interval, PWM, pulse number output sensors and transducers

  • Sensor measurement uncertainty, accuracy, calibration and reliability

  • Theory, principles, effects, design, standardization and modelling

  • Smart sensors and systems

  • Intelligent sensors and systems

  • Sensor instrumentation

Bullet Smart Sensor Systems - Advanced Engineering Course

    (20-24 April 2020, Delft, The Netherlands)



The Smart Sensor Systems Course is a post-graduate engineering course. The lectures are given by top experts from academia and industry, thus ensuring a good mix between recent developments and established practice. The prerequisite for the course is a basic knowledge of electrical circuits and systems. The course will be taught in English. After the course, each attendee will receive a certificate of attendance.


This course addresses the design and development of smart sensor systems. After a general overview, various key aspects of sensor systems are discussed: measurement and calibration techniques, the design of precision sensor interfaces, analog-todigital conversion techniques, microfabrication techniques, and sensing principles for the measurement of magnetic fields, temperature, capacitance, acceleration and rotation. The state-of-the-art smart sensor systems covered by the course include smart magnetic-field sensors, smart temperature sensors, multi-electrode capacitive sensors, implantable smart sensors, DNA microarrays, smart inertial sensors, smart acoustic sensors and CMOS image sensors. A systematic approach towards the design of smart sensor systems is presented. The lectures are augmented by an introduction to multi-domain modelling and simulation, and hands-on experiments. This course is a part of the PhD Education Program approved by the Graduate School of TU Delft, Delft, The Netherlands. PhD students can be granted 3 ECTS credits after evaluation based upon a paper on a theme to be agreed with the course directors.
