Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The traditional international biennial symposium “Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology Meeting”, known as the NanoOstrava Meeting (NOM), is in its 6th year. We would like to invite you to the symposium, which will be held at the VSB–TU of Ostrava in the Czech Republic on 13–16 May, 2019. The symposium is organized in cooperation with scientists from the Nanotechnology Centre, VSB–Technical University of Ostrava and the Institute of Geonics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. These high-quality series of meetings cover all fields of nanoscience.

The aim of NOM-2019 is to support cooperation between scientists and to develop a platform to facilitate open discussions between scientists, students and industry representatives from European and other countries with an interest in the development of nanomaterials and nanotechnology. Excellent speakers from all over the world will present their results within individual sections of NOM-2019. For all details, please see http://www.nanoostrava.cz.

Participants of the conference are cordially invited to contribute original research papers or reviews to this Special Issue 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 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.
