Following the requests of many participants, we asked to Applied Surface Science to postpone the submission of manuscripts dead-line with half-month. I am pleased to inform you that we received the approval of Prof. H. Rudolf to shift the submission date to November 14. Please use this time to elaborate your manuscripts according to Elsevier standards and submit them in the shortest possible time.

Prof. Dr. Ion N. Mihailescu
