  • Scientific quality of the abstract
  • Originality of the abstract
  • 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 Microelectronic Engineering. These issues are dedicated to MNE2015, 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.
