MNE 2020 – Save the date & Call for abstracts

We invite you all to MNE 2020! Micro and Nano Engineering (MNE) is the main international conference focusing on micro- and nano-fabrication, techniques, process engineering, as well as applications of fabricated micro/nanostructures, devices and microsystems. It covers electronics, photonics, sensors, energy, environment and life sciences.
In 2020, you are all welcome in Leuven, Belgium, from Monday September 14 until Friday September 18. The 2020 conference format will include four parallel sessions, eight plenary talks, invited presentations, oral and poster presentations, a commercial exhibition, industrial sessions, short courses and several awards (MNE fellow and Elsevier’s Young Investigator).
This edition will be the 46th Conference in a series that started in Cambridge in 1975, and was held most recently in Vienna (2016), Braga (2017), Copenhagen (2018) and Rhodes (2019).
Since 2019, the MNE conference series is organized by the International Micro and Nano Engineering Society (iMNEs), in coordination with a local organizing committee (KU Leuven and imec in 2020). The official journal of the Society are Elsevier’s « Micro and Nano Engineering » and « Microelectronic Engineering » journals.

Call for abstracts

Submission deadline April 27th, 2020

The MNE2020 Scientific Committee welcomes submissions of high quality abstracts in four thematic tracks, related to the conference topics listed below. There are two different submission types:
♦ Oral presentations
♦ Poster presentations
MNE poster papers have equal weight to oral presentations. The Scientific Committee will decide on the final format of presentation.
