Information on IC MNE 2018 & QI 2018

General information

   The International Conference “Micro- and Nanoelectronics – 2018” (ICMNE-2018) including the extended Session “Quantum Informatics” (QI-2018)  will be held on October 1-5, 2018 at the park-hotel “Ershovo”, Zvenigorod, Moscow Region, Russia. It continues the series of the All-Russian Conferences “MNE-1999”, “MNE-2001”, “QI-2002” and the International Conferences “ICMNE-2003”, “QI-2004”, “ICMNE-2005”, “QI-2005”, “ICMNE-2007”, “QI-2007”, “ICMNE-2009”, “QI-2009”, “ICMNE-2012”, “QI-2012”, “ICMNE-2014”, “QI-2014”, “ICMNE-2016” and “QI-2016”.

   ICMNE is a biannual event covering the main fields of micro- and nanoelectronic technologies and device physics. ICMNE-2018 will be focused on recent progress in that area. The Conference will include the exhibition of equipment for micro- and nanoelectronics.

   In 2018, within the framework of the conference, a round table Russia-Japan will be held with the participation of leading scientists.

   The Proceedings of this conference are published in the SPIE Digital Library along with nearly 460,000 papers from other outstanding conferences, SPIE Journals and chapters from SPIE Press books.

   SPIE will publish the full-text papers in a separate volume of the Proceedings of SPIE dedicated to ICMNE-2018 after the Conference termination. According the rules of SPIE the full-text papers can be published in the Conference proceedings only if the corresponding oral talks or posters were presented by the authors at the Conference.

   The authors should prepare manuscripts of the full-text papers according to the rules of the SPIE Proceedings (see the Downloads section) and submit it by the Author Submission & Chair Review System service. The manuscripts should be written in clear and concise English. The paper length should be in the range of 6-12 pages.

   The full-text manuscripts should be sent to SPIE by November 12, 2018. Authors should also transfer the electronic copy of manuscripts and the filled Copyrights Forms to the ICMNE-2018 Local Organizing Committee. Otherwise the manuscript will be rejected.

   The papers not presented and discussed at ICMNE-2018 will not be published in the Proceedings.
