Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, European and American high-energy physics communities have directed a big effort to draw new strategies for the future of particle physics. The European Committee for Future Accelerator Physics (ECFA) and the Astroparticle Physics European Consortium (APPEC) have decided to stimulate and support wide long-term detector R&D programs to fulfill the requirements driven by their research horizons. Also, the U.S. community followed a parallel path with the CPAD, the Coordinating Panel for Advanced Detectors, with its mission to promote, coordinate, and assist in the research and development of instrumentation and detectors for high-energy physics experiments. The requirements deriving from the future programs of high-energy physics research are enlarging their borders from an improved sensitivity for rare event searches to high-efficiency and resolution performances, even if coping with increasing rates of incoming particles for high-luminosity facilities. This represents a remarkable challenge for the development of a new generation of particle detectors that can take advantage of leading technological development. This Special Issue aims to promote outstanding research concerning all aspects of particle detection for high-energy physics, both from astronomical- and accelerator-induced collisions, focusing on state-of-the-art progress, developments, and new trends.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Solid state and tracking detector;
  • Photodetectors and particle identification techniques;
  • Resistive and micropattern gaseous detectors;
  • Liquid noble elements detectors;
  • Calorimetry and energy measurements;
  • Fast timing detectors;
  • Quantum sensors and devices;
  • Electronics for readout and acquisition of particle detectors.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
