The aims and scope of the 2016 International Conference on Inventions is to make researchers focus on innovation and invention research. Innovation and invention are a solution to a specific technological problem, and an improvement to a machine or product (or a new process) for creating an object or a result, but also could achieve a completely unique function or a radical breakthrough. However, there is a very thin line between brilliant innovation and absolute failure, as some inventors famously found out. Another issue faced is the problem of insufficient funds. Thus, the 2016 International Conference on Inventions (ICI conference) aims to:
- Be a platform for successful patent inventors to share their experiences in inventing with all participants.
- Help authors to evaluate their technology license fees, based on the valuation theory and approaches using Qcount: Intangible Asset Valuation System.
- Help authors to showcase their patents and technologies on a network transaction platform.
- Help authors to start up with professional consultants and consultation.
At the same time, ICI also aims to gather and show high-quality papers concerning the discovery of completely unique functions or results, and going further to advance the frontiers of science and extend the standards of excellence established by inventions to readers. They will also be recommended to the Special Issue "Selected Papers from the 2016 International Conference on Inventions" in Applied Sciences.

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.
