We welcome you to the MNE 2020. It 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 island (2019). Micro and Nano Engineering (MNE) is the core international conference focusing on micro- and nano-fabrication, manufacturing techniques, as well as applications of the fabricated micro/nanostructures, devices and microsystems into electronics, photonics, energy, environment, chemistry and life sciences.

In september 2020, MNE will return to Leuven in Belgium.

The 4-day conference format includes 3 parallel sessions, seven plenary talks, invited presentations, oral and poster presentations (evaluated by the International Program Committee), a commercial exhibition and several awards.

MNE poster papers have equal weight to oral presentations. The MNE Committees encourage authors to submit papers (regular, accelerated publications, reviews or news and opinions) to 4 thematically focused issues of Micro and Nano Engineering (MNE by Elsevier) related to the conference topics. The MNE journal is the open-access counterpart of the famous Microelectronic Engineering journal also edited by Elsevier.

Elsevier also sponsors the annual Young Investigator Award, which will be attributed at the conference. MNE has two related conferences (EIPBN) in the USA, and (MNC) in Japan. It is a tradition that the author of the “Best Paper” of at least one of these related conferences is giving an invited talk at MNE.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Leuven in september 2020!
Please keep an eye on this website, as more information will follow.

Kind regards,
