Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 21st International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (MicroTAS 2017) will be held at the Savannah International Trade and Conference Center in Savannah, Georgia, USA, 22-26 October, 2017.

MicroTAS 2017 continues a series of conferences that are the premier forum for reporting research results in microfluidics, microfabrication, nanotechnology, integration, materials and surfaces, analysis and synthesis, and detection technologies for life science and chemistry. The conference offers plenary talks, as well as contributed oral presentations and posters selected from submitted abstracts.

The foremost aim of this Special Issue is to publish research results on "Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (MicroTAS)";. The eventual endeavor is to find new scientific comprehensions related to study of microfluidics and nanotechnology in relation to chemistry and biomedical sciences. We invite scientists and professors to submit their papers to this Special Issue on one of the following topics:

  1. Biosensors and bio-detection technologies

  2. Cells, tissues, and organs-on-a-chip

  3. Biomedical diagnostics and therapeutics

  4. Microfluidics in biomedical engineering

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.
