Welcome from the Chairs

It is our sincere pleasure and great honor to announce the “1st Corrosion and Materials Degradation Web Conference” (CMDWC 2021). The conference is organized by the MDPI open access journals Corrosion and Materials Degradation (CMD) and Materials and will be held online from 17 to 19 May 2021.

Corrosion, along with the science and technology of its mitigation, is a long-lived and fascinating subject. It is among the most common forms of material degradation that poses enormous challenges to a variety of industries and can even impact our health. The vexing problem of corrosion continues to cost our society very dearly and has repercussions on the application of new and critical technologies. CMDWC 2021 will present disruptive and novel approaches to corrosion mitigation whose exploitation appears commercially attractive, while also promoting cutting-edge advancements in traditional approaches.

All scientists or engineers working on corrosion as well as those studying the mechanical degradation of materials are welcome to join this event and share their findings on the following general and related themes. Note that this list is not exclusive.

  • Mechanism and Predictive/Deterministic Aspects of Corrosion
  • Corrosion in Concrete and Porous Media
  • Materials Degradation in Defence and Civilian Aircrafts
  • Composite and Bonded Structures
  • Corrosion Assessment and Management
  • Atmospheric Corrosion of Materials
  • Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion
  • Corrosion Barrier Coatings
  • Corrosion and Degradation of Biomaterials
  • Fatigue and Creep Degradations
  • Degradation of Additively Manufactured Materials
  • Corrosion in Nuclear Industries
  • High-Temperature Corrosion
  • Corrosion Mitigation

CMDWC 2021 will allow you to share and discuss your most recent research findings with the vibrant worldwide community of scientists and engineers in the field. Moreover, during the conference, numerous internationally renowned speakers will share their current state-of-the-art research through a series of live-streaming webinars, which will also include comprehensive Q&A sessions. Participation in and "attendance" to the CMDWC2021 are FREE of charge.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. All accepted abstracts will be available online for discussion and for rating during the conference period. Authors will also have the option to include a slide, poster or video presentation of their work to be displayed online together with their abstract. The accepted abstracts and slide/poster/video presentations will be published in an issue of Materials Proceedings. After the conference, selected contributions will be invited for full manuscript submission for publication in the journals CMD and Materials (Impact Factor: 3.057).

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event.

Instructions for Authors

Submission

To present your research at the CMDWC2021:

  1. Create an account on Sciforum if you do not have one, then click on ‘New Submission’ on the upper-right corner of the window or on ‘Submit Abstract’ at the top of this webpage.
  2. Submit a short abstract in English (200–300 words) until 20 March 2021.
  3. The Conference Committee will evaluate all the submitted abstracts, and authors will be notified by 14 April 2021 about acceptance.
  4. All accepted abstracts will be available online for discussion during the time of the conference (17–19 May 2021). Authors will also have the option to include a slide, poster or video presentation to be displayed online along with their abstract. These optional files should be submitted by 3 May 2021.
  5. After the conference, abstracts and optional files will remain available online for viewing on Sciforum.net and will be published in the proceedings of this e-conference within a dedicated issue of the MDPI journal Materials Proceedings.
  6. Participants will also have the opportunity to contribute with a full manuscript to a Special Issue in Corrosion and Materials Degradation for free or to a Special Issue in Materials (Impact Factor 3.057) with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges (APC). Full manuscript submissions will undergo the usual process of each journal, including peer-review.
Abstract Submission Requirements

Abstracts should be prepared in MS Word. Please use the 1st Corrosion and Materials Degradation Web Conference Microsoft Word template file (download below). Do not insert any graphics (schemes, figures, etc.) into a movable frame which can superimpose the text and make the layout very difficult.

Optional Files Submission

After abstract acceptance, if you wish to submit your presentation slides, poster or video, please upload a copy of the short abstract as PDF and Word files, in the corresponding required fields, and upload your file in the corresponding optional field.

Presentation Slides

Authors are encouraged to prepare a presentation in PowerPoint (or similar software) to be displayed online along with the abstract. Slides can be prepared in the same way as for any traditional conference. They should be converted to PDF format before submission.

Posters

Authors could also submit a poster presenting their work. They will be available on the conference website during and after the event. Posters should be presented in PDF format.

Video Presentations

Authors are also encouraged to submit video presentations. This is a unique way of presenting your paper and discussing it with peers from all over the world. The video should be no longer than 10 minutes and less than 250 MB, and be prepared with one of the following formats: mp4; webm; ogg.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a Communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).

Conference Awards

To acknowledge the support of the conference’s esteemed authors and recognize their outstanding scientific accomplishments, we are pleased to announce the Conference Awards: two Best Contribution Awards and two Best Presentation Awards, offered by our sponsors Corrosion and Materials Degradation and TriDurLE.

Best Contribution Award

Corrosion and Materials Degradation would like to award the two best contributions as elected by the conference committee. The Awards will consist of 500 Swiss Francs (CHF) each. All submissions (even if they are only abstracts) will be eligible for the Best Contribution Awards.

Best Presentation Award

As a sponsor, TriDurLE would like to grant two awards for the two best presentations submitted to the conference. The Awards will consist of 500 Swiss Francs (CHF) each. Only abstracts with an accompanying slide, poster and/or video presentation will be eligible for the Best Presentation Awards.
