Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The challenges that our society is facing, now more than before, impose strict cooperation between the academic world and the industrial sector. Oftentimes, these two different entities have walked separately in the complicated world of science, due to both cultural preconceptions and real divergences owing to different goals. Eventually, this was reflected in a delay of innovation of non-robust new materials and products. Merging fundamental science with applied concepts is necessary to solve problems, especially in a dynamic sector such as packaging.

The MATBIM 2019 meeting, running under the heading “…bridging the gap between Academia and Industry…”, will be the platform to bring together researchers from academia and industry to share new ideas and contribute the latest findings related to science and technology packing materials. The main goal is to boost the technological transfer from research labs to real applications that may have an impact on our everyday lives.

The MATBIM2019 conference will focus on three main themes that are currently hot areas in the field of food and bioproduct packaging materials: (i) mass transfer and food and bioproduct/material interactions, (ii) new trends toward environmentally friendly materials, and (iii) new materials through nanotechnology routes. Within these three main themes, several topics will be discussed during the conference, including transfer phenomena and toxicological/safety assessment, new materials from biomass and downgauging strategies, bottom–up/top–down approaches, and hybrid materials, just to mention a few. Sci will publish a selection of papers related to the meeting in the form of regular articles as well as critical reviews and perspectives. Your contribution is very welcome!

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. Sci is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
