Starting from the 2015 edition of the Metamaterials conference, a partnership between the journal EPJ AM and the Metamaterials Congress has been established, which envisage a Special Issue of the Congress published on EPJ AM every year.
As for the previous editions (free access here: 2015, 2016 - in press), also the 2017 edition of the Special Issue will contain a small percentage of invited, regular and review articles carefully selected among the papers submitted to Metamaterials 2017 conference on the basis of their quality and scientific impact.
This year, the Editor in Chief of EPJ-AM – Prof. Yang Hao – and the Congress General Chairs - Profs. Filiberto Bilotti and Andrea Alù – have appointed Profs. Ferran Martín and Mirko Barbuto as Guest Co-Editors of the EPJ AM Special Issue.
EPJ AM is an open access platform for multidisciplinary researchers to exchange information on metamaterials with a focus on high impact engineering applications. It also aims to stimulate new fields of metamaterials research beyond traditional topics and foster innovation and transfer of knowledge with added value. The journal is covered in Emerging Sources Citation Index (Web of Science) and DOAJ (Directory of Open Access Journals).
The authors of the selected papers will be invited soon after the paper acceptance deadline (15 May 2017) and the Special Issue is expected to be published before the end of 2017.
