With the support of:

Microelectronic Engineering:
Special Issues

Open call for papers for four special issues of Microelectronic Engineering associated with the 40th Micro and Nano Engineering, MNE 2014 conference:

  1. Micro/Nano Lithography with Photons, Electrons & Ions 2014
  2. Micro/Nano Fabrication 2014
  3. Micro/Nano Devices & Systems 2014
  4. Micro/Nano Biotechnologies & Systems 2014

The aim of these four separate special issues is to bring together recent advances in the scientific and technical domains included in the above areas and covered by MNE 2014 International Conference. These issues are 'open call'. This means that, while they mainly include selected papers presented at MNE2014, they are also open to other authors. These special issues are expected to attract high quality contributions with high visibility.

Submission Deadline

Manuscript submission deadline: 24 October, 2014

Please submit papers directly on the MEE journal submission web page [the submission opens on 24 September, 2014] and select the correct special issue.


Manuscripts of the special issues will be submitted and reviewed via the online Elsevier Editorial System (EES). Articles will be processed and published with the standard Elsevier publishing timeline for each individual manuscript following acceptance.

Instructions to authors

  • The standard submitted manuscripts are regular MEE publications (4-6 pages).
  • Review papers (7-10 pages) are encouraged from invited/plenary speakers and leading members of the community. If you are not an MNE invited speaker and you wish to submit a review, please contact Evangelos Gogolides (Editor-in-Chief, Microelectronic Engineering) or Laura Heyderman (MNE 2014 Program Chair) with a proposal and outline.
  • Highly novel work can be submitted as an accelerated publication (up to 4 pages) and will be given high priority.
  • For all publications, we encourage you to include supplementary data and audio/video abstracts.
  • For general enquiries, please contact Jennifer Rupp, MNE Program Co-Chair

Your paper and associated supplementary information should comprise a complete, novel and full description of your work. Please make sure that your paper is well-written, and supply additional information, videos, audios, etc. as on-line supplementary material to appear on the web, but not in the printed version (see instructions for authors). Your supplementary material will be available directly from ScienceDirect or Scopus.

Please note that the special issue papers undergo the same high-standard review process as any other MEE paper. At least two reviews need to be in agreement per paper before decision, and the typical rejection rate is 50-60%. Therefore, please make sure that both the technical content of your paper, and your presentation style and language, is of high quality, novel, unpublished, and not being submitted elsewhere.

Please check the author guidelines.
