Welcome to MNE 2014 !

The 40th International Conference on Micro and Nano Engineering


MNE is a major annual international conference, devoted to micro and nano engineering, held in a European country every September. The conference brings together engineers and scientists from across the world to discuss recent progress and future trends in the fabrication, manufacturing, operation and application of micro and nano-structures and devices. Applications in electronics, magnetics, photonics, electromechanics, environment and life sciences are also discussed. MNE 2014 will be the 40th conference in a series that was started in Cambridge in 1975 and which was held most recently in Athens (2008), Ghent (2009), Genoa (2010), Berlin (2011), Toulouse (2012) and London (2013). In September 2014, MNE will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland in the new Swiss Tech Conference Center on the beautiful EPFL campus overlooking Lake Geneva and the Savoy Alps. It is estimated that the conference will attract 500-800 participants.

Conference Structure and Highlights

The conference will start with a welcome reception, held on Monday, 22 September 2014 in the evening. The technical sessions will be held from Tuesday 23 through to Friday 26 September, with the meeting closing on Friday. The programme combines plenary and parallel oral sessions featuring invited presentations by a number of internationally recognised experts and will also include both contributed oral and poster presentations. Accepted abstracts will be assigned to oral or poster presentations, based on recommendations from the International Programme Committee. In addition there will be a technical exhibition where exhibitors can display commercial tools, materials and software of direct interest to the community.
