MEE Young Investigator Award and Lectureship 2014

Micro Electronic Engineering (MEE) is celebrating 30 years (1983-2013) of contribution in the field of processing for Micro- and Nanoscale Device and System fabrication. As part of the celebrations, MEE is inaugurating a series of Young Investigator Awards and MEE Lectureships. The inaugural Lectureship will be presented at the 2014 MNE Conference in September 22-26, 2014 in Lausanne, Switzerland, sponsored by Elsevier.

Following the internationally publicized call for applications, nominations for 30 outstanding candidates were received and evaluated by a panel of 6 international members of the MEE Editorial Board. Main ranking criteria were the overall accomplishment of the candidates, the originality and relevance of their work and the degree of independence they have gained. Since the evaluation process resulted in a virtual tie of two candidates, the committee decided with Elsevier's support to mark the inaugural event by presenting aequi loci 2014 Young Investigator Awards and MEE Lectureships to :
