High-Entropy Materials (HEM) A Special Issue of

Materials Chemistry and Physics       ISSN: 0254-0584

Deadline Extended to Mar 31, 2017!!
High-entropy alloys has become an exciting and vibrant field of materials science and engineering since the concept was proposed by Prof. Jien-Wei Yeh. Symposia, meetings and workshops on topics of high-entropy alloys are being held, and a rapid increase in numbers of journal publications and citations is evident. This design concept allows compositions beyond the scope of traditional materials, which offers unprecedented properties and opportunities for a wide range of structural and functional applications. The 1st International Conference on High-Entropy Materials (ICHEM 2016) is thus being held at the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, from Nov. 6‒9, 2016. It gathers research groups around the world to present the latest development in High-Entropy Materials (HEMs). It also offers a platform for networking, collaboration and information exchange in the community. To deliver the excellent research works presented in the ICHEM 2016 to global audiences and to accelerate the development of high-entropy materials, the SCI journal Materials Chemistry and Physics (MCP, Elsevier) plans to publish a special issue on “High-Entropy Materials” in 2017. This special issue welcomes submissions from the field of high-entropy materials.
