A new open-access special issue on Deep Matter and Energy contains sixteen papers that span all four DCO Science Communities. Edited by Ho-Kwang Mao (Center for High Pressure Science and Technology Advanced Research (HPSTAR), China) and Chengwei Sun (China Academy of Engineering Physics, China), this special issue of Engineering “focuses on the science and technology of deep volatiles, which span the multidisciplinary boundaries of mineralogy, geophysics, geochemistry, biology, and fundamental physics and chemistry at depths ranging from the deep ocean to the Earth’s core, under the common theme of the high-pressure dimension.” It contains papers presented at the Deep Volatiles, Energy, and Environments Summit, which was co-sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Engineering and DCO on 13–14 March 2018 at the Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF) in Shanghai, China. The summit, organized by HPSTAR and DCO, brought together about 170 scientists from nine nations.
