Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The joint conference of the 6th International Conference on Nanostructures, Nanomaterials and Nanoengineering 2017 (ICNNN 2017) will be held in Tokyo, Japan, 26–29 October 2017. The conference will provide opportunities for scientific discussion and international communication for wide range of researchers.

ICNNN 2017 focuses on nanostructures, nanomaterials, and nanoengineering. Extraordinary structures and physicochemical functions of nanomaterials are attractive research targets. For example, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have specific mechanical, electrical, and optical properties that are not found in bulk carbon materials, although CNTs are made only out of carbon. Papers related to the special structures and functions of nanomaterials will be major contributions to the first part of this Special Issue.

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

  • Extraordinary structures and physicochemical functions of nanomaterials

  • Fabrication of extraordinary nanostructures

  • Fabrication of extraordinary physicochemical properties of nanomaterials

  • Characterization of extraordinary nanostructures

  • Characterization of extraordinary physicochemical properties of nanomaterials

  • Practical applications of extraordinary nanostructures

  • Practical applications of extraordinary physicochemical properties of nanomaterials

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. Materials 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 1500 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.
