Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the last few decades, we have witnessed very successful developments in light metals design and processing. In particular, there has been a significant increase in the use of light alloys for various applications. Due to societal and economic pressures, the light-alloys community is called upon to provide novel high-performance materials with improved properties, as well as advanced processing technologies, which take sustainability and recycling aspects into particular consideration. The main focus of the forthcoming ‘Light Alloys and Applications’ issue is to present a comprehensive overview of the new developments. Recent advances in the science and technology of aluminum, magnesium, and titanium alloys will be addressed in various topics, which include alloy design, simulation and modeling, processing innovations, novel forming and joining technologies, corrosion and surface modifications, as well as sophisticated examples of successful applications in light-weight constructions, energy technologies, and medicine.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this special issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
