Two options are available for submitting a contribution to the MME
- Submitting a 2 page abstract (1 page text, 1 page figures) for peer review selection. Once accepted the contribution is published in the book of abstracts.
- Submitting a 6 page paper also for peer review selection. An accepted contribution can be published in the IOP Conference Series after the conference.
Please note that as in previous years a special issue of the IOP Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering (JMM) is planned. This gives authors of selected conference papers the opportunity to submit an extended version of their accepted conference contribution. Every submission to JMM will undergo a regular review process.
Conference Contributions have to be submitted not later than 8 May 2020.
A link for uploading paper will be made available here soon.
IOP Science Journal of Physics: Conference Series
Accepted abstracts printed in the IOP Science Journal of Physics: Conference Series. If you do not wish your abstract to be incorporated in these proceedings, you can indicate this during the submission.
IOP Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering
Authors of accepted contributions have the option to have their revised manuscript to be considered for publication in the Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering. The program commitee will make a selection of about ten manuscripts, and offer these to the editor of JMM. The review process is as with any regular contribution. The program committtee members do not act as referees.
At the Conference
At MME conferences, each contributing author presents the results both in a short oral presentation and in a classical poster session. The short oral presentation (Flash presentation) has the goal to inform the audience on the topic of your poster and to motivate to visit you during the subsequent poster session.
Due to the large number of posters to be presented, authors will be strictly limited to only a few minutes presentation time (details will be given closer to the conference). After this time the presentation will be stopped. The purpose of the flash presentations is to allow for a brief overview of all the posters and not to present all the results. This is only an opportunity to advertise for your paper. Therefore you should only show the title and list of authors, and one or two provoking images which raise curiosity. In-depth discussions will be held at the posters during the poster session. The last thing you want is that nobody visits your poster because you already told everything in the flash presentation.
Posters size should be A0 format (width 841 mm x height 1189 mm), and portrait orientation.
Make your poster easy to identify, with title, author(s), and the author affiliation(s) in the heading. Use clear and precise language. Avoid lengthy formulations and superfluous wording. Keep the text to a minimum and make a good use of illustrative figures. Use high resolution pictures and figures and contrasting colours. See the entertaining site of C.B. Purrington for additional advise.
Each poster will be presented during one of the posters sessions, but the posters should be displayed from welcome to closing session. Only posters which are displayed until the end of the conference will be eligible for the poster prize.
