Dear Colleagues,

The rising demand for reliable, real-time, low-maintenance, 
cost-efficient monitoring systems with great accuracy is becoming more 
and more obvious in our everyday life. One of the main driving forces 
behind this is the Internet of Things. In this regard, the growing 
interest in analog and mixed signal integrated signal processing 
circuits in portable and wearable smart sensor-related technologies and 
interfaces used for healthcare and sports performance monitoring, 
environmental monitoring, agriculture, food control, or energy 
conservation purposes, is an important benchmark to satisfy these needs. 
This demand also requires ecofriendly integrated circuits and devices 
with voltage and power management. On top of that, other performance 
metrics such as low noise, small area, high signal-to-noise ratio, and 
so on become standard sensor circuit features. All the design concerns 
impose severe design challenges on researchers in this emerging field today.

This Special Issue aims to highlight advances in the development, 
design, implementation, modeling, and validation of integrated circuits 
and systems in smart sensing applications for the benefit of humanity. 
Authors are encouraged to submit both original research articles and 
surveys. Research articles should address the originality, as well as 
practical aspects and implementation, of the work in the field, while 
surveys should provide an overview and up-to-date information.
