Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue comprises selected papers from the Proceedings of the 1st Coatings and Interfaces Web Conference (CIWC-1), held from 15–29 March 2019 on sciforum.net, an online platform for hosting scholarly e-conferences and discussion groups.

Through CIWC-1, we aim to promote and advance the exciting and rapidly changing field of surfaces, coatings, and interfaces. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Coatings and surfaces for corrosion, wear, and erosion mitigation;
  • Coatings and interfaces for energy applications;
  • Biocoating and biomaterial surfaces and interfaces;
  • Coating deposition and surface modification technologies;
  • Coatings, surfaces, and interfaces for food safety and preservation;
  • Coatings, surfaces, and interfaces for cultural heritage;
  • Advances in coatings and surface characterization.

Selected papers which have attracted the most interest on the web, or that provided a particularly innovative contribution, have been gathered for publication. These papers have been subjected to peer review, and are published with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications. We hope this Conference Series will grow rapidly in the future and become recognized as a new way and venue by which to present new developments related to the field of coatings and interfaces.

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. Coatings 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 1600 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.
