2018 IEEE International Conference on Applied System Innovation (IEEE ICASI 2018) will be held in Chiba and Tokyo in Japan on 13–17 April 2018, and will provide a unified communication platform for topics on material science and manufacturing technologies. Scientists from all over the world actively want to discover new advanced materials and manufacturing technologies in electrical and mechanical engineering. In recent years, the applications of material science and manufacturing technologies have been highly-developing fields, in the areas of semiconductor and electronic device technology, design, manufacturing, physics, and modeling. This Special Issue, "Selected Papers from IEEE ICASI 2018", aims to select excellent papers from IEEE ICASI 2018 and covers the following scopes:
- Thin and thick films
- Processes for coating deposition and modification
- Characterization techniques
- Functional, protective and decorative coatings
- Dyes, pigments and their intermediates
- Wear, corrosion, erosion
- Coatings for high temperature
- Film materials for packaging
- Applied surface science
- Adsorption, adhesion, functionalization
- Fundamental and functional properties of surface and interfaces
- Theoretical and computational modeling of surfaces and interfaces
- High surface area systems: colloids, nanoparticles, large interfaces
