General information
The MNE2020 Scientific Committee welcome submissions of high quality for 4 thematically focussed issues of Micro and Nano Engineering (MNE by Elsevier), 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.
