The composite industry has always acknowledged the importance of initial material forms and processing conditions for part performance. Properly selected materials (fiber and matrix), product forms and processes have a major impact on the finished part.
From the development of early manufacturing methods to that of the most up-to-date ones, we have learned that the fabrication of high-quality composite parts requires some amount of control over the local physical and chemical environment that can both create and disrupt the designed material microstructure. The combined influence of both material product forms and processing conditions on final composite properties is of primary importance. New processes are sometimes needed in order to use composites to their full advantage, process them in a more cost-effective way, embrace new fiber or matrix systems, support mass production rates, etc.
Knowledge in the composite processing field is key to the future development of engineering applications.
The focus of this Special Issue is on composite processing. It aims at presenting up-to-date knowledge in many relevant aspects that contribute to a successful manufacturing process.

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. Journal of Composites Science is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
