Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,

MDPI would like to invite all of the Guest Editors who are recognized experts in their field to attend the 5th MDPI Guest Editor Club (MGEC 2023). This forum intends to highlight exciting topics in a comprehensive but efficient manner to allow GEs from all over the world to present their experience and discuss their achievements.

The GE Club will bring together a group of multi-disciplinary Guest Editors from all over the world to present and exchange breakthrough ideas on Special Issue developments. We have, therefore, put together this platform, which will be looking after your interactions with the journal, leading you through the most important aspects of the role and what you can expect from the process of editing a Special Issue. We are pleased to provide an excellent opportunity to all the brilliant Guest Editors to propose and develop new approaches, exchange perspectives and encourage new lines of research.

We will record the lectures, with prior agreement of the lecturers, and deposit them in our online database. We will continue to build this database with brief introductions and summaries of topics and open an online discussion group for each GE. We hope that this event is of interest to you, and we welcome you to join us at this forum.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you at the 5th MDPI Guest Editor Club (MGEC 2023). Please find below an up-to-date outline of presenters.
