Special Issue "Polymer-Based Flexible Printed Electronics and Sensors"
A special issue of Polymers (ISSN 2073-4360).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2018
Recently, flexible and printed electronics/sensors have drawn significant attention. The field for flexible and printed electronics is an interdisciplinary engineering field, which requires a comprehensive understanding of materials science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and physics. Among them, new polymeric materials should be demonstrated to contribute to many practical applications, such as IoT, bio-heathcare devices.
The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together innovative developments in a broad spectrum of “Polymer Based-Flexible Electronics and Sensor” research. Papers addressing the wide range of aspects of this technology are sought, including, but not limited to, recent developments in new active and passive material components for flexible polymer electronics and sensors, fundamental and applied science issues underlying polymeric semiconducting materials, systems and their fabrication processes, technologies for process integration of flexible electronics and sensors, and studies on their applications.
Both review articles and original research papers are solicited. There is particular interest in papers envisioning innovative semiconducting polymers and their electronics/sensors that have not been possible with conventional rigid materials and form factors.

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. Polymers 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 1500 CHF (Swiss Francs).
