To enrich our vision of making the scientific information available at an ease of access, Materials Leadership & Committees initiated special issue for the open access journals. All the articles published under a special issue focuses on a single topic providing the complete information about the ongoing research providing more insight on an emphasized topic of research enabling the readers access wide forecasted information on a particular topic Issue.
Special Issue Proposals: Special Issue deals with focused research topics of high interest, falling under the scope of the Journal. Special Issues are the pool of articles under a current topic selected from the Ongoing Research under specific discipline. The aim of the Special Issue is to provide a platform for the researchers to understand the recent advancements and challenges in particular areas of research. These articles will provide an opportunity to the readers to understand and access the scientific information.
We encourage potential scientists to organize the Special Issue in their field of interests that fits within the Journal scope. This will provide an opportunity to increase the visibility of the Guest Editors. The Special Issue Titles may be from any basic and clinical area of Science, Technology and Medicine. People interested in publishing a special issue are advised to consider the following guidelines.
Your proposal should contain:

Special issue articles are published immediately upon their acceptance and are released under upcoming regular issues. Special Issues are invited throughout the year. For more information or any queries about the special issues, please write us to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Promoting Your Special Issue
Materials Leadership & Committees will work with Guest Editors to increase the visibility of the Special Issue in the months leading up to the submission deadline and once it has been published.
What Materials Leadership & Committees will do:
1. Materials Leadership & Committees will circulate your Call for Papers to the Materials Editorial Board, targeted mailing lists, and relevant AoM listservs. It will also advertise your Call on the Material websites and other social media platforms. It will re-issue the Call at appropriate intervals.
2. Once the Special Issue is published, announcements will be made to the Materials Editorial Board, targeted mailing lists, and relevant AoM listservs as well as on the Materials websites social media platforms.
3. Free access to the Special Issue will be made available in the website to Guest Editors and readers.
What is expected of Guest Editors?
1. We expect that Guest Editors will circulate the Call for Papers within their own personal networks, social media groups, and at any relevant conferences or workshops they may attend.
2. If it has not already been suggested as part of the proposal, consideration should be given to organizing a conference or workshop either to generate submissions or to aid in the development of submitted papers. A symposium or PDW at a well-known conference may also be considered.
3. We expect Guest Editors to identify up to 50 scholars for whom the Special Issue will be particularly relevant

Dr. Hoon Huh, 64 years old, is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Korea. He received his Master degree in Mechanical Engineering and Ph.D. degree in Applied Mechanics in 1978 and in 1986, respectively. During his Ph.D.course at the University of Michigan, he had focused his research on Metal Forming and Mathematical Plasticity. After his Ph.D. degree, he joined the faculty of Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology as an assistant professor in 1986 and conducted his research work on metal forming, net-shape manufacturing, material testing for forming limit diagram, crash analysis of vehicles.
In his early research,he developed novel techniques to construct a forming limit diagram for sheet metal forming. He devised a new-type of specimens for experiments in constructing a forming limit diagram. He also tried to obtain a forming limit diagram considering the aspects of deep-drawing instead of stretching with a specially designed specimens and apparatus. Later on, he utilized a concept of inverse analysis for sheet metal forming and as a result, he succeeded in establishing a process design of rectangular cup drawing with the large aspect ratio, which is used for a case of rechargeable battery in cellular phones. The result was published in an international journal to disseminate the new information obtained from numerical simulations rather than experiments. Until then, the market share of the rechargeable battery was entirely occupied by Japanese companies. He also made a contribution to reduction of spring-back in sheet metal forming of high strength steels.
The influence of rate-dependent material properties on the car crash was studied extensively by him and his students for more than twenty years. This kind of investigations was first in Korea and had not been reported even in the world since this kind of research results was a sort of confidence in automotive industries. He also tried to identify the correlation between the material properties and the strain rates. He has produced the strain-rate dependent material properties of more than 150kinds of materials including conventional steel, high strength steel, advanced high strength steel as well as aluminum alloy, magnesium alloy, copper alloy, polymers and composites. The material properties of stress-strain curves are provided with the variation of strain rate ranged from quasi-static to 200/sec up to 1000/sec. He and his students also proposed several strain-rate dependent material models and one of them has been adopted in a commercial code of LS-DYNA. He is now working for standardization of the dynamic material properties with the variation of strain rate in various testing equipment and related specimens for automotive and defense industries.
He also made extensive contributions to several engineering problems: design of the primary switch used in electric power plants in order to reduce the electric power dissipation and the corresponding temperature elevation; straightening of aluminum pipes used in production of arrows and light tents; design of a HEV relay switch; leveling of coils of steel sheets for auto-body; leveling of steel codes with several wires for reinforcement of tires.
He has made distinguished contributions in establishing the Korean Society for Technology of Plasticity (KSTP) in 1992 and a new journal of International Journal of Automotive Technology (IJAT) in 2000. He served as president of KSTP(2007) and Editor-in-Chief of IJAT(2005-2013). He was the Dean of School of mechanical, aerospace and systems engineering and Head of Department of mechanical engineering at KAIST. He was also the Director of KAIST Valufacture Institute of Mechanical Engineering for Brain Korea 21C project granted to distinguished universities from Korean government.
He has made seminal contributions to the engineering of deformation processing and structural analysis with rate-dependent plasticity through computational simulations and experimental characterization.
