Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is our pleasure to announce this new Special Issue, which is the product of the cooperation between Materials and the 2021 4th International Conference on Advanced Composite Materials (ICACM 2021). The 2021 4th International Conference on Advanced Composite Materials (ICACM 2021) will be held at Hosei University, Tokyo, Japan, on August 25–27, 2021. The objective of ICACM 2021 is to present the latest research and results of scientists related to Advanced Composite Materials topics.

Advanced composites exhibit desirable physical and chemical properties that include light weight coupled with high stiffness (elasticity), and strength along the direction of the reinforcing fiber, dimensional stability, temperature and chemical resistance, flex performance, and relatively easy processing. Advanced composites are replacing metal components in many uses, particularly in the aerospace industry.

ICACM provides a forum for accessing the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both the industrial and academic worlds, sharing best practices in the fields of composite materials, materials processing, and material engineering. The meeting will provide an opportunity to highlight recent developments and to identify emerging and future areas of growth in this exciting field:

- Nanocomposites
- Biocomposite materials
- Functional/multifunctional composites
- Inorganic nonmetallic matrix composites
- Ceramic–matrix composites
- Metal–matrix composites
- Concrete and cementitious composites
- Organic–inorganic hybrid composites
- Polymer–matrix composites
- Thermoplastic composites

Presented papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference. In addition, a Materials Special Issue dedicated to the conference will be open to the submission of selected outstanding contributions.

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. Materials 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 2000 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.
