Opening of the paper submission process

Dear colleagues and authors of contributions presented at PBII&D 2015 – Buenos Aires

The Elsevier Editorial System is ready for article submission. As we told you in the closing session, the papers will appear in a special issue of the prestigious Journal Surface and Coatings Technology. A special editorial team was conformed for these proceedings, managed by Prof. Paul K. Chu.

We encourage you to convert your PBII&D contribution in a full paper, the title and authors should remain the same as in the abstract. The contents of the Proceedings will consist of selected papers containing an original work presented at the conference, not previously published and not being considered for publication elsewhere.

A stringent peer-review evaluation process, administered by Guest Editors, will assure that the technical quality of the manuscripts meet the requirements as stated in the Guide for Authors and Peer Review Policy of the Journal.

Instructions for submission:

• The submission website for this journal is located at:

• On the upper banner, below the Journal name, click “submit paper” and register or login as Author. Then “submit new manuscript”.
