Despite their almost 30,000-year age, man-made ceramics still possess enormous technological breakthrough capabilities. Their unique structural and functional properties make ceramic materials candidates for thermally, mechanically, and chemically demanding applications. Application requirements are increasingly demanding when it comes to the design, manufacturing, reliability, and costs. Fields of applications range from biomedical to electronics, from high purity technical ceramics to more traditional ceramics. New processing routes, such as additive manufacturing or field-assisted sintering techniques, offer intriguing possibilities to produce new shapes or materials with peculiar properties. In this framework, this Special Issue aims to publish papers in the area of emerging ceramic technologies and applications, presenting new processing routes or innovative applications of ceramic materials. Particular attention should be given to the interplay between the processing conditions and the resulting material properties, and how these can be controlled. The Special Issue is dedicated to both ceramic materials and ceramic matrix composites.

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
