Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the call for a Special Issue, which will encompass selected studies, presented at the “3rd World Congress on Electroporation and Pulsed Electric Fields in Biology, Medicine, Food and Environmental Technologies (wc2019.electroporation.net)”, which will take place in Toulouse, France on 3–6 September 2019.

This cross- and multidisciplinary meeting is organized by the “International Society of Electroporation Based Technologies and Treatments”, and will bring together scientists, clinicians and industrials with a shared interest in electric field based approaches.

The international conference represents the major event for the scientific community working on electric field based therapies and industrial approaches involving pulsed electric fields, and will include topics related to basic biology, computational modeling of electroporation, pulsed electric field technologies, biomedical applications, food processing, environmental applications, micro and nanotechnologies, and cold plasma.

This Special Issue will cover the latest research pertaining to electroporation and electric field based technologies and their therapeutic applications, principally but not exclusively applied to cancer treatments. This compendium will cover novel research studies and reviews, related to basic as well as applied research related to electric field based therapies.

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. Cancers 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 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.
