The quality of the abstracts will form the basis for selection for the MNE conference. Abstracts will be peer reviewed according to the following criteria:

  • Relevance to MNE conference
  • Potential impact of the abstract


As in previous years, all presenters will be kindly asked to publish their contribution in one of four special issues of the Journal of Microelectronic Engineering. These issues are dedicated to MNE 2016, and your paper will be subject to a peer-review process before acceptance. Information on how to submit papers to these special issues will be made available at the Elsevier-website in due time.
