Special Issue "Acoustic Metamaterials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2018
Acoustic metamaterials are artificially-structured materials that can manipulate and control sound waves in ways that are not possible in conventional materials. It is an exciting and rapidly-expanding topic in the field of physical acoustics that, for more than 15 years now, has continued to give rise to exotic wave phenomena, such as acoustic cloaking, non-reciprocal propagation, parity–time-symmetric sound manipulation or waveguides immune to backscattering. At the same time, new concepts, emerged by the intense research in the field of acoustic metamaterials, made acousticians and engineers to re-attack long-standing problems in acoustics, such as low frequency super absorption and to rethink the manufacturing of acoustic materials/devices with performance that surpasses the currently existing technology.
This Special Issue will reveal both fundamental wave aspects of acoustic metamaterials as well as their practical perspectives. It provides a unique forum for discussion and presentation of recent advances. Scientists working in this broad field are invited to present their work in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
