Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Due to the success of the first Special Edition, and encouraged by the Manufacturing Engineering Society (MES), a new Special Edition called “The Special Issue of the Manufacturing Engineering Society 2019 (SIMES-2019)” is launched as a joint issue of the journals Materials and Applied Sciences.
The first edition collected 48 contributions on emerging methods and technologies, such as those related to additive manufacturing and 3D printing, advances and innovations in manufacturing processes in different areas (machining, forming, molding, welding, and nontraditional manufacturing processes), manufacturing systems (machines, equipment and tooling), metrology and quality in manufacturing, product lifecycle management (PLM) technologies, and risks in manufacturing engineering and society.
This second edition involves the aforementioned journals with the aim of covering the wide range of research lines developed by the members and collaborators of the MES and other researchers within the field of Manufacturing Engineering.
Similarly to the first one, the main objective of “The Special Issue of the Manufacturing Engineering Society 2019” is to publish outstanding papers presenting cutting-edge advances in the field of Manufacturing Engineering, focusing on materials processing, as well as on experimental and theoretical results within applied sciences.
The Special Issue aims to explore the evolution of traditional manufacturing models towards the new requirements of the Manufacturing Industry 4.0 and how manufacturing professionals should face the resulting competitive challenges in the context of an ever-increasing use of digital information systems and communication technologies.
Contributions on emerging methods and technologies such as those related to additive manufacturing will have special relevance within this Special Issue, as well as those ones where sustainability and environmental issues play a fundamental role in manufacturing.
The main topics covered by this Special Issue are scientific contributions on the following manufacturing research topics:
- Additive manufacturing and 3D printing
- Advances and innovations in manufacturing processes
- Sustainable and green manufacturing
- Micro and nanomanufacturing
- Manufacturing of new materials
- Manufacturing systems: machines, equipment and tooling
- Robotics, mechatronics and manufacturing automation
- Metrology and quality in manufacturing
- Industry 4.0
- Product lifecycle management (PLM) technologies
- Design, modeling, and simulation in manufacturing engineering
- Production planning
- Manufacturing engineering and society
The above list is not exhaustive, and papers on other topics associated with advances in manufacturing engineering are also welcome.
Excellent papers selected from the Manufacturing Engineering Society International Conference 2019 can also be part of this Special Issue, provided that the degree of novelty of the contribution is guaranteed and the paper has been not published elsewhere.
Especially welcome are all the works with a clear application to the manufacturing field related to processing of materials, including ceramics, glasses, polymers (plastics), semiconductors, magnetic materials, medical implant materials and biological materials, silica and carbon materials, metals and metallic alloys, composites, coatings and films, and pigments; application of techniques such as electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, calorimetry, and others to the analysis of manufacturing processes and systems; mechanics of materials; and tribology (friction, lubrication and wear).
It is our pleasure to invite professionals from industry, academic institutions, and research centers from around the world to submit their contributions to this Special Issue.
We hope this second edition of the Special Issue is as successful as the first one.

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).
