Special Issue in Polymers: Soft Materials and Systems
We are organizing a Special Issue of Optofluidics 2016 for the journal Micromachines (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/micromachines), an open access journal on the technology and science of micro-scale machines and micromachinery, published monthly online by MDPI. Optofluidics is a platform technology combining microfluidic channels, optical components and detectors as a multidisciplinary approach for a wide range of applications, including analytical chemistry, diagnostics, biosensors, displays, and molecular imaging tools, energy, and translational medicine. This Special Issue aims to collect high quality research papers, short communications, and review articles that focus on optofluidics, micro/nano technology, and related multidisciplinary emerging fields. The Special Issue will also publish selected papers from the 6th Optofluidics 2016 conference (http://www.optofluidics2016.org/), 24–27 July 2016, Beijing, China. The aim of the optofluidics 2016 conference is to provide a forum to promote scientific exchange and foster closer networks and collaborative ties between leading international optics and micro/nanofluidics researchers across cutting-edge research fields. Topics range from fundamental research to its applications in chemistry, physics, biology, materials and medicine. All the interdisciplinary topics and related aspects of optofluidics are of interest in the conference, examples include micro/nanofluidics, optical devices and systems, plasmonics and metamaterial, biochemical sensors, imaging and display, fabrication and integration, energy and environment. It is worth noting that Micromachines is indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science) and an impact factor for 2014 is 1.269. We think your work could make significant impact to the field of micro/nanofluidics, and a compilation of papers from your labs will be of high interest to the scientific community.

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 1600 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.
