We warmly welcome you to MNE 2023. After Rhodes (2019), Turin (2021) and Leuven (2022), the International Conference on Micro- and Nano Engineering (MNE) series will take place in Berlin in September 2023. This will be the 49th edition of the conference series, which began in Cambridge in 1975.
The MNE conference is the flagship event of the International Society for Micro- and Nanotechnology (iMNEs). It has always been the leading international conference for 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. The MNE brings together researchers and experts from all over the world to meet and discuss the latest research results and their applications. Furthermore, the conference aims to promote, involve and train young talent in the field of micro and nano engineering.
Just like in 2011, it is our great pleasure to cordially invite you – the experts in the field of micro and nano engineering – to meet up in Berlin, the capital of Germany in the heart of Europe. At the 3-day conference you will have the opportunity to follow 3 parallel sessions, plenary and invited talks, oral and poster presentations from renowned researchers, experts and users. All entries will be reviewed and evaluated by an international technical program committee. MNE poster contributions have the same significance as oral presentations. A sound commercial exhibition complements the MNE program to foster a lively exchange of the latest technologies, materials and applications.
The MNE committees encourage all authors to submit papers (regular, accelerated papers, reviews, or news and opinion) for four thematic open access editions of Elsevier’s “Micro and Nano Engineering” related to the conference themes.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Berlin in September 2023!
Please have a frequent look at this website as more information will follow.
The MNE2023 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:
MNE poster papers have equal weight to oral presentations. The Scientific Committee will decide on the final format of presentation.
The 4-star Mercure Hotel MOA Berlin is located right in the center of Berlin and is easily accessible by public transport. The Hotel offers perfect conditions for the MNE 2023 m² with 336 rooms & suites, 24/7 reception, restaurant & bar, 440 parking spaces, 40 conference and event rooms on 5,000 m². Exhibitor areas flooded with daylight, short distances between the conference rooms, the best gastronomic supply and professional event support offer the best possible chances of success for the MNE 2023.
We welcome you to the International Conference on Micro- and Nano Engineering (MNE) 2023. This will be the 49th conference in a series that started in Cambridge in 1975. After the last conferences in Rhodes (2019), Turin (2021) and Leuven (2022), this conference will be held in Berlin 25th to 28th September 2023. The German capital Berlin in the center of Europe is a vibrant city with a long tradition in science and technology.
MNE is the major European conference focusing on micro- and nanofabrication and manufacturing techniques for micro- and nanostructures, devices and microsystems for electronics, photonics, energy, environment, chemistry and life sciences.
The commercial exhibition at MNE is an excellent opportunity to foster existing alliances, promote new businesses, reconnect with existing customers, generate new leads, and interact with leading experts from academia, government labs and industry from around the world.
Corporate sponsorships play an important role in the continued success of the conference by helping to support our community in a variety of ways. Our unique environment will expand your organization’s visibility by increasing your exposure to our community which will help build new and long-lasting relationships. This year, there are Platinum, Gold, Silver and Standard levels, which offer additional benefits to our exhibitors and sponsors. In addition, we offer start-ups the opportunity to present themselves at the Exhibition for a small budget.
We look forward to welcoming you to Berlin in September 2023.
