Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Additive manufacturing (AM) has become an underpinning technology for many industries, such as aerospace, automotive, biomedical, and defense. In this Special Issue, we aim to publish high-quality research articles in advances in additive manufacturing: processing, design, industrial applications, and their related topics. This includes but is not limited to process optimization, design for additive manufacturing, topology optimization, new technologies, process–microstructure–property, characterization of AM parts, modeling, post-processing, metamaterials, functional materials, surface modification, artificial intelligence, materials characterization, scaling up, process integration, and education of AM processes. New applications are welcome, too. We invite researchers in AM to contribute original research, reviews, commentaries, perspectives, and future outlooks on related topics. We will also discuss technological breakthroughs and the latest developments in the formats of both short communications and full papers. The goal of this Special Issue is to invite the research and industrial community by addressing the current progress of generation of additive manufacturing which will make a greater impact in our society.

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 semimonthly 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 1800 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.
