Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Micromachine motion covers mechanic, material, processing, physical and other highly integrated technologies. Microtribology and adhesion characteristics are important factors in the service life of micromachine’s motion. Surface engineering enhances microtribology and adhesion properties, and ensures the core technology avoids excessive friction and wear.

The aim of this Special Issue is to collect high quality research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on micro/nano tribology, contact mechanics, adhesion, surface engineering, and selected multidisciplinary emerging fields. The Special Issue will also publish selected papers from the International Conference on Engineering Tribology and Applied Technology 2018 (ICETAT2018), which will be held from 16–18, November, 2018, in Taipei, Taiwan. The aim of the ICETAT2018 is to gather scholars from all over the world to present advances in the aforementioned fields and to foster an environment conducive to exchanging ideas and information. The ICETAT2018 will provide a platform to assemble researchers, practitioners, and academics to present and discuss ideas, challenges and potential solutions on established or emerging topics relating to research and practice in engineering tribology of high-speed, high-precision, energy conservation, sustainable use, advanced design, industrial tribology and issues with their application. We are cordially inviting you to submit your manuscript to the Special Issue and also join us at the ICETAT2018  conference to share the latest news in tribology, microsystems, and related emerging fields.

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. Micromachines 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 1200 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.
