Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

I am pleased to announce the opening of the Special Issue entitled “Advances in Adhesion Science, Materials and Technology,” to be published in the open–access journal Materials (ISSN: 1996-1944).

Adhesion plays a key role in nature and artificial applications, spanning from atomistic to macroscopic scales. The study and design of adhesive systems is complex, since adhesion is affected by several factors, such as surface roughness, bulk material and interfacial properties, material ageing, loading conditions and contact geometry.

This Special Issue aims to collect recent contributions from scientists working on basic and applied research on adhesion. Our goal is to highlight the most recent advances in the modeling, experimentation, and technology of adhesive systems across various length scales.

Contributions are welcome on, but are not strictly limited to, the following topics:

  • Strategies for tuning adhesion;
  • Bio-inspired adhesive systems;
  • Design of structural and/or reversible adhesive systems;
  • Haptic adhesion;
  • Adhesion in biomedical applications;
  • Adhesion contact mechanics;
  • Peeling and fracture mechanics;
  • Artificial Intelligence strategies applied to adhesion;
  • Soft and hard matter adhesion;
  • Interplay of adhesion and friction;
  • Pick-up and place tools;
  • Soft adhesive grippers;
  • Innovative adhesive materials;
  • Experimental measurements of adhesion.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2600 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.
