Welcome Message from the Chair of the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Materials Science and Engineering

I am pleased to welcome you to the 3rd International Electronic Conference on Materials (ECM-3). The first and second editions of this conference held in 2014 and 2016 respectively, were a great success that encouraged the organizing committee to continue this tradition by launching the 3rd edition of this event from May 14 to 28 in 2018. Throughout this event, we aim to cover the following topics:

  • Topic A: Materials Characterization
  • Topic B: Nanotechnology in Material sciences and Engineering
  • Topic C: Manufacturing Processes and Systems
  • Topic D: Biomaterials
  • Topic E: Fibers and Membrans
  • Topic F: Optical, Electrical and Magnetic Materials

This is a virtual conference held at www.sciforum.net/conference/ecm-2018. Sciforum.net is the platform developed by MDPI and sponsored by the Open Access Journal Materials to organize electronic conferences, and to provide our community with the technical support for hosting our digital events. This platform is set in response to the high demand from our community whom might not have always required material and human resources for travelling and participating physically in high quality scientific events.

ECM-3 provides the participants with the unique opportunity to disseminate among their peers, in an open forum, their knowledge and latest research finding in materials field and receive immediately rich feedback from the virtual audience towards their future research directions.

The participation is free of charge – both for authors and attendees. Accepted papers will be gathered in the proceedings of the conference, and selected papers will be published in Materials through invitation from the Editor-in-Chief of Materials.


I am very enthusiastic about this third addition of e-conference in Materials and am relying of you to make it a successful event again.

Please do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame which can superimpose the text and make the layout very difficult.
    • Electronic Conference on Materials Science MS Word Template File
Manuscript Preparation
  • References: References must be numbered in order of appearance in the text (including tables and legends) and listed individually at the end of the manuscript. We recommend preparing the references with a bibliography software package, such as EndNote, ReferenceManager or Zotero to avoid typing mistakes and duplicated references. Citations and References in Supplementary files are permitted provided that they also appear in the main text and in the reference list. In the text, reference numbers should be placed in square brackets [ ], and placed before the punctuation; for example [1], [1–3] or [1,3]. For embedded citations in the text with pagination, use both parentheses and brackets to indicate the reference number and page numbers; for example [5] (p. 10). or [6] (pp. 101–105). The Reference list should include the full title as recommended by the ACS style guide. The style file for endnote, MDPI.ens, can be found at http://endnote.com/downloads/style/mdpi
  • Author List and Affiliations: Authors' full first and last names must be provided. The initials of any middle names can be added. The PubMed/MEDLINE standard format is used for affiliations: complete address information including city, zip code, state/province, country, and all email addresses. At least one author should be designated as corresponding author, and his or her email address and other details should be included at the end of the affiliation section. Please read the criteria to qualify for authorship.
  • Figures, Schemes and Tables: All figure files should be separately uploaded during submission. Figures and schemes must be provided at a sufficiently high resolution (minimum 1000 pixels width/height, or a resolution of 300 dpi or higher). All Figure file formats are accepted. However, TIFF, JPEG, EPS and PDF files are preferred. Materials can publish multimedia files in articles or as supplementary materials. Please get in touch with the Editorial office for further information. All Figures, Schemes and Tables should also be inserted into the main text close to their first citation and must be numbered following their number of appearance (Figure 1, Scheme I, Figure 2, Scheme II, Table 1, etc.). All Figures, Schemes and Tables should have a short explanatory title and a caption. All table columns should have an explanatory heading. To facilitate the copy-editing of larger tables, smaller fonts may be used, but in no less than 8 pt. in size. Authors should use the Table option of Microsoft Word to create tables. For multi-panel figures, the file must contain all data in one file. For tips on creating multi-panel figures, please read the helpful advice provided by L2 Molecule. Authors are encouraged to prepare figures and schemes in color (RGB at 8-bit per channel). Full color graphics will be published free of charge.

For further enquiries please contact us at ecms2018@mdpi.com.

Authors wishing to publish their papers are asked to abide to the following rules:

  • Any facts that might be perceived as a possible conflict of interest of the author(s) must be disclosed in the paper prior to submission.
  • Authors should accurately present their research findings and include an objective discussion of the significance of their findings.
  • Data and methods used in the research need to be presented in sufficient detail in the paper, so that other researchers can replicate the work.
  • Raw data should preferably be publicly deposited by the authors before submission of their manuscript. Authors need to at least have the raw data readily available for presentation to the referees and the editors of the journal, if requested. Authors need to ensure appropriate measures are taken so that raw data is retained in full for a reasonable time after publication.
  • Simultaneous submission of manuscripts to more than one journal is not tolerated.
  • Republishing content that is not novel is not tolerated (for example, an English translation of a paper that is already published in another language will not be accepted).
  • If errors and inaccuracies are found by the authors after publication of their paper, they need to be promptly communicated to the editors of this journal so that appropriate actions can be taken. Please refer to our policy regarding publication of publishing addenda and corrections.
