It is my pleasure to invite you to participate in this Special Issue of MDPI Metals devoted to advanced methods and approaches to surface enhancement. There are five themes that encompass the latest developments in specific areas of surface enhancement, namely: Surface enhancement for improved fatigue resistance; product verification and material characterization; surface finishing; laser-based processes for surface enhancement; and Towards Industrie 4.0. All these topics include conventional as well as novel approaches and techniques, so submissions that address the wide range of technical and practical aspects in the area are welcome.
The call for this Special Issue is cotemporaneous with the preparation of the first International Conference on Advanced Surface Enhancement (INCASE) held in Singapore from September 10th to 12th, 2019. Contributors to this symposium are also invited to make submission(s) to this Special Issue.

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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
