Nanoscience and nanotechnology emerged in the last decades at the forefront of a wide array of research fields, due to the highly challenging and surprising properties of nanomaterials and nanosystems. These properties allow nanomaterials in different forms (0D, 1D, 2D, 3D) and phases or nanosystems to be utilised in a wealth of applications, ranging from biomedical to industrial engineering. Moreover, these materials often become themselves an interdisciplinary bridge between different scientific and technological domains.
When accounting for the effects of various phenomena occurring at the nanoscale, models and simulations together tend to reveal unsolved issues while enabling formidable advances that push forward the rich spectrum of technologies based on nanostructured materials. Moreover, it is clear that, for such materials, theoretical formulations and numerical solvers, dealing with mesoscopic or macroscopic descriptions, are necessary tools to enhance experiments and practical investigations.This Special Issue aims to gather the rich variety of recent research breakthroughs in the perspective described above, and it aims to cover recent advances in the study of phenomena, the manipulation of materials at different scales, the design and characterization of nanoapplications, all enabled by computational modeling and simulation of nanomaterials.

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. Nanomaterials 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 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.
