It is a pleasure to welcome you at the 36th International Conference on Micro & Nano Engineering (MNE), held in Genoa, Italy from 19 to 22 September 2010.
Micro-and Nano-Engineering (MNE) is an international conference on micro- and nano- fabrication and manufacturing using lithography and other nano-patterning related approaches.
The Conference brings together engineers and scientists from all over the world to discuss recent progress and future trends in the fabrication, manufacturing and application of micro- and nano- structures and devices.
Applications in Electronics, Electro-mechanics, Environment and Life Sciences are discussed such as: nanoelectronics, MEMS-NEMS, bioMEMS and lab-on-a-chip devices.
The meeting will take place in Genoa, an ideal venue for the MNE2010 Conference.
World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the city is an urban amphiteatre rising from the water and silhouetted against the mountains, with so many faces to discover in a lively and ever-changing present, with a vision towards the future.
An intertwining of ancient places and surprising and absolutely contemporary events.
We hope to see you in Genoa.

Massimo De Vittorio - Programme chairman
The Conference is traditionally organized in parallel sessions and features plenary talks, invited presentations, contributed oral and poster presentations and a commercial exhibition.
The Conference proceedings are published in “Microelectronic Engineering Journal” - Elsevier.
The Genoa MNE2010 Conference will be the 36th in a series that started in Cambridge in 1975, and was most recently held in Vienna (2005), Barcelona (2006), Copenhagen (2007), Athens (2008) and Ghent (2009).
MNE has related conferences, the International Conference on Electron-, Ion- and Photon- Beam Technology and Nanofabrication (EIPBN) in the USA and the International Conference on Microprocesses and Nanotechnology (MNC) in Japan.
It is a tradition that the author of the "Best Paper" of at least one of these related conferences is giving an invited talk at MNE.
The Conference opens with a Welcome Reception on Sunday, 19 September in the evening. The technical program starts on Monday, 20 September and closes in the afternoon of Wednesday, 22 September. Short courses will be organized on Sunday, 19 September.
The program will feature plenary and invited presentations by a number of internationally recognized authors, contributed oral and poster presentations and a commercial exhibition. Oral presentations and posters as well as Plenary and Invited Talks will be selected by the International Program Committee. Note that MNE attributes the same weight to both Poster and Oral Presentations.
