Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are planning to publish a Special Issue on “Smart Systems” related to the International Conference of Smart Systems Engineering (SmaSys2021, http://smasys.yz.yamagata-u.ac.jp/2021/) held on 7–8 October 2021 in Yonezawa, Japan. This Special Issue provides opportunities for collaboration across a wide range of fields and technologies related to emerging smart systems. Smart systems regard broad scientific and engineering fields. They include organic materials, organic electronics, organic devices, biomaterials, biomedical and biosystem engineering, electrical engineering and informatics, mechanical systems engineering, smart flexible structures and systems, green materials and their processing, tourism engineering with agriculture and foods, and new engineering education.

All the participants of SmaSys2021 and their colleagues—especially students—are encouraged to submit their works to this Special Issue.

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. Technologies 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 1400 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.
