This Special Issue, “Empowering Materials Processing and Performances from Data and AI”, will address advances in materials engineering, with special emphasis on the bridging from raw materials, processing and the induced properties and performances. Third millennium engineering is addressing new challenges in materials sciences and engineering. The present topical issue aims at addressing four key challenges using data and artificial intelligence:
(i) processing data, for enhancing existing physic-based models or creating data-driven models from scratch when the former (physics-based) models are absent or too poor for making valuable predictions;
(ii) proposing new techniques for visualizing, classifying, modeling, extracting knowledge, explaining and certifying, data and data-driven models;
(iii) enabling data to be smarter (in the same way that data allow enriching physics-based models, those models allow transforming big-data into smart-data);
(iv) inverting usual material engineering with all the just referred techniques, to discover materials and their processing for optimal properties/performances.
Original papers are solicited on all types of approaches and materials, scales and applications. Of particular interest are recent developments in the use of data and AI in the four axes mentioned before.

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.
