This special issue of Electronic Letters on Science & Engineering (e-LSE), An International open Access Journal, includes the abstracts of the presentations at the workshop, BSW2018 (Seventh Bozok Science Workshop: Boron and Boron Containing Nanomaterials with Applications) held during April 08-10, 2018 at Yozgat Bozok University, Yozgat, Turkey. At the workshop the discussions were based on active researches from basic to several applied fields. The fundamental scientific philosophy behind the meeting, Bozok Science Workshops, is the stimulation of cross-disciplinary flow of knowledge and expertise from both the experimental and theoretical standpoints. At the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth workshops the main topics were chosen as "Boron studies in nano-scale" for BSW2010, "Computational Chemical Physics" for BSW2011, "Computational Studies on Structure and Dynamics from Nuclei to Biological Molecules" for BSW2012, "Studies on Structure and Dynamics from Nuclei to Clusters" for BSW2013, “Nano Carbon Materials and Their Applications” for BSW2016 and “Studies from Nuclei to Nanomaterials with Applications” for BSW2017, respectively. "Boron and Boron Containing Nanomaterials with Applications" was considered as special topic for BSW2018. The studies on boron, computational chemical physics, atomic/molecular and cluster systems were stil welcome again to BSW2018. As for the workshop planned to be held as BSW2018; the abstracts are prepared as a special issue of e-LSE. All referees (consisting 51 experts and 9 of them from out of Turkey) have been selected from the Scientific Committee (consisting 63 experts and 11 of them from out of Turkey) of BSW2018 to review the abstracts before the workshop. In order to take part at the above mentioned
special issue; presenting the selected abstract by applicant is the main principle.
By means of the workshop and this special issue of e-LSE, we hope to give opportunity to the authors
to improve the quality of their works also give the same opportunity to the referees to make critics
and to be aware of the active studies submitted to the meeting. Announcement on the special issue is
on the workshop circulars right from the start, at web page and in the shared emails. In total, 42
selected abstracts from the reviewed and presented abstracts are published in this issue. This e-LSE
issue may be a good reference material and be a great source for the experts who are interested in the
discussed topics. I am pleased to be Editor of this special issue of e-LSE. I would like to thank to the
Scientific Committee for the generous support for recommending invited lectures, subjects and
sharing their opinion to improve the workshop. Especially, I would like to thank to the members
accepting my invitations to be referee for selecting the abstracts for this volume, and to the members
of the Organizing Committee for their help. Finally, I would like to thank to Founding Editor Dr.
Feyzullah Temurtaş for giving me this opportunity and helping me in managing this issue.
