Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will publish selected papers from the Vortex 2019 conference, 20–25 May 2019, in Antwerp, Belgium. You are invited to submit a full manuscript for consideration and possible publication in this joint Special Issue. Submissions will be rapidly reviewed and published immediately, free of charge, if accepted.
The international conference, Vortex 2019 (, will highlight recent advances in vortex matter in superconductors. The purpose of the workshop is to promote international collaboration and exchange of ideas in this fascinating field of science. Invited and leading contributed papers will focus on research subfields of:

  • Vortex phase diagram;
  • Vortex dynamics;
  • Vortex imaging;
  • Josephson phenomena;
  • Emergent flux patterns in unconventional superconductors;
  • Vortices in meso- and nanoscale systems;
  • Vortex pinning and its applications;
  • Superconducting devices;
  • Vortex matter vs. pairing symmetry;
  • Multicomponent superconductivity;
  • Topological superconductors and hybrids;
  • 2D and interface superconductivity;
  • Novel superconducting materials and heterostructures.

Prof. Dr. Milorad Milosevic
Guest Editor

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. Condensed Matter is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1600 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.
