Call for papers



Int. J. of Materials and Structural Integrity (IJMSI)


Special Issue on: "Advanced Manufacturing Technologies in the Industry 4.0"



Guest Editors:
Dr. Aissam Hidoussi, Natural Science Simulations and Engineering Laboratory, Algeria
Prof. Haroun Righi, University of Batna 1, Algeria


Currently many trends such as the internet of things (IoT), digital manufacturing and cyber-physical systems are considered as key elements of the definition and implementation of Industry 4.0. Manufacturing is a primordial factor in the world’s economy and has been experiencing a revitalisation in many countries (even the developing countries) in the last decade.


The aim of this special issue is to bring together the leading researchers of advanced manufacturing technology in the industry 4.0 and covers all aspects of advanced manufacturing including mechanical manufacturing, metallurgy and the material science, etc.


The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conference on Computational Materials Science and Thermodynamic Systems (CCMST 2018), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

  • Electronic components; service life; thermal conductivity


Notes for Prospective Authors


Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper has been completely re-written and if appropriate written permissions have been obtained from any copyright holders of the original paper).


All papers are refereed through a peer review process.


All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read our Submitting articles page.
