Applied Surface Science Special Issue

A Special Issue of the journal “Applied Surface Science” (publisher: Elsevier; URL:, ISSN: 0169-4332, Impact Factor = 3.150) will be dedicated to the scientific content presented at the 2nd International Conference on Applied Surface Science (ICASS)

All manuscripts submitted to the Special Issue by ICASS Conference attendees will undergo the normal “peer-review” process for the journal. This will create a high-impact volume that will become a highly cited modern reference for the applied surface science community.

We strongly encourage and invite all ICASS participants to submit an original article to be considered for publication in this Special Issue as early as possible starting from 15 June 2017, to ensure that this Special Issue can be published as soon as possible by Jan 2018.
