Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Manufacturing plays a significant role in the development of modern science and technology. More importantly, engineering products in the field of semiconductors, consumer electronics, mobile, display, automotive, ship-building, aviation, and building construction industries can be produced with the aid of advanced manufacturing technology. Advanced manufacturing industries increasingly integrate new innovative technologies in both products and processes. As advanced manufacturing processes are being adapted in wide engineering fields, the design of manufacturing is becoming important. Since material science and manufacturing include various engineering research areas, it is key to integrate a wide spectrum of knowledge in these research fields to accelerate government and industrial development. Therefore, this Special Issue on “Advanced Design for Manufacturing Processes” will aim to provide an opportunity to integrate a wide spectrum of knowledge in the field of material design and manufacturing processes.

This Special Issue of Materials focuses on all aspects of current scientific and technological progress related to the advanced design for manufacturing processes. Topics of interest include mechanical and material properties of materials for manufacturing design; advanced design of composite materials such as concrete composites; advanced manufacturing processes including laser aided manufacturing, additive manufacturing, and nano- and micromanufacturing; and material design and manufacturing of lithium–ion batteries.

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews that address advances in mechanical and materials design and manufacturing processes are welcome.

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 1800 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.
