We are pleased to announce that we expect to put together "FOUR" special issues:

"International Journal of Plasticity (IJP)"on
Mechanics & Materials,

"Steel Research International (SRI)" on
Advanced Manufacturing & Process Modelling,

"International Journal of Material Forming (IJMF)" on
Formability of Metallic Materials (organized by Dorel Banabic) &
Incremental Sheet Forming (organized by Anne Marie Habraken)

with papers selected from the submissions to NUMISHEET 2014. The aim is to present to the wider research community the current challenges in sheet metal forming. Included will be new manufacturing techniques and their prediction, limit states and failure, constitutive issues, multiscale modelling, etc. The papers must be full-length, original and exploring new ground in the fundamental mechanics and physics of these subjects.

The organization chairs will serve as guest editors for the four special issues along with the Editors-in-Chief (IJP / SRI) or the Associate Editors (Dorel Banabic & Anne Marie Habraken-IJMF) of the journals. The manuscripts will be due by April 1, 2014. The selected manuscripts will undergo the usual peer review process of each journal to ensure scientific quality.

For organizational purposes it would be helpful if you would indicate your desire to submit a paper to one of these special issues by sending a message to Professor Jeong Yoon at by September 1, 2013. Then, it will go through the recommendation procedure by the NUMISHEET2014 Scientific Committee about the suitability to one of the special issues. Due to the limited volumes, the special issues are only invitation-based from the recommendations of the Scientific Committee based on their reviews of the AIP proceeding papers.
