47th MNE Conference
MNE2021 will be the 47th International Conference in a series that started in Cambridge in 1975, and was held most recently in Braga (2017),Copenhagen (2018) and Rhodes (2019).
The MNE2020 conference in Leuven had to be cancelled because of the COVID-19 outbreak, but we are now building a new fantastic edition in Torino which will represents for micro and nano engineers and scientists the best showcase for the technology advancement achieved over the last two years.
Micro and Nano Engineering (MNE) is the flagship event of the international Micro and Nano Engineering society (iMNEs) and the premium international conference on:
- micro/nanofabrication and manufacturing techniques
- application of micro/nanostructures, devices and microsystems into electronics, photonics, energy, environment, chemistry and life sciences.
The MNE 2021 edition returns to Italy, after 11 years, and it will be hosted for the first time in the beautiful and charming Torino, the capital of the Piedmont Region located in the north-west of Italy. Torino, surrounded on the West and North by the Alps and on South by the famous Langhe hills, is famous for its architectural masterpieces (castles, noble palaces, and museums) and enogastronomy, with red wines, chocolate and cheese among its excellences.
The 3-day conference format includes 3 parallel sessions, plenary talks, invited presentations, oral and poster presentations (evaluated by the International Program Committee), an industrial session and a commercial exhibition.
MNE poster papers have equal weight to oral presentations. The MNE Committees encourage authors to submit papers (regular, accelerated publications, reviews or news and opinions) to 4 thematically focused open access issues of Elsevier Micro and Nano Engineering related to the conference topics.
Elsevier also sponsors the annual Young Investigator Award, which will be presented at the conference. MNE has two sister conferences (EIPBN) in the USA, and (MNC) in Japan.

Torino is the capital of the Piedmont Region and is located in the north-west of Italy, just 150 km far from Milan. The city was the former capital of the Duchy of Savoie, the Kingdom of Sardinia and, from 1861 to 1865, the first capital of the Italian Kingdom.
The city was founded by the Romans in 28 BC as a military camp and the typical Roman grid of streets crossings at right angles was maintained for many years and it is still one of the main features of the modern city.
