Welcome to MNE 2012


The MNE2012 Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the 38th International Micro & Nano Engineering Conference (MNE 2012) will be held in Toulouse-France at the “Pierre Baudis” Congress Centre from 16 to 20 September 2012.

The MNE Conference focuses 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, photonics, electromechanics, environment and life sciences are discussed.

MNE attracts about 700 delegates (>500 papers) and is the first international micro-nanotechnology Conference in Europe on the following subjects :

1. Micro and Nanolithography

2. Micro and Nanofabrication/Micro and Nanoengineering

3. Micro and Nano Systems

4. Micro ans Nano Devices and Systems for Biology, Chemistry and Medicine

We host a technical exhibition which remains continuously opened during the four days of the Conference.

The Conference program and  layout have been structured to maximize the opportunity for delegates to visit the technical exhibition.

Welcome to Southern France, in Toulouse, the «pink city». In our region, nature can be beautiful and majestuous, tormented or peaceful. The monuments, churches, abbeys, castles and palaces built by our ancestors to protect themselves or to pay tribute to their faith are in tune with natural beauty. Toulouse, a rich and beautiful city, is famous for its aeronautical and space achievements, its university founded in 1229, its laboratories and research centres. Today, more than 97,000 students attend its three universities, institutes and schools. This city owes its name «Ville Rose» to the colour of the bricks covering the walls, which glitter Under the blazing sun.

It combines a strong living spirit with a brilliant past and can unveil the gist of its beauties while jealously hiding less familiar treasures. Toulouse is constantly building the future but is also a real heaven for the strolling passer-by who just wants to muse in a cloister or on a terrace outside a café or a restaurant till very late at night. Toulouse also lives within the sound of rhythm and music, with a subtle mix of Italian and Spanish influences.

By organizing this meeting, we will provide you with an excellent opportunity for scientific and social interaction.

We look forward to welcoming you in Toulouse!

Yours sincerely
