Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Microprocessing (microfabrication) and nanotechnologies are key technical platforms for the construction of an advanced information society in the 21st century. Apart from their continuous contributions to the high integration of semiconductor devices, which are the core drivers of the technologies, microprocessing and nanotechnologies are anticipated to improve a wide range of advanced convergence technologies in the fields of information-communication, and bio, medical, and environmental control technologies. In order to meet the social expectations through practical R&D of innovative next-generation devices, an all-around-view R&D is crucial in semiconductor processing/inspection technologies on the 14 nm-and-below scale, microscopic processing/assessment technologies in the several-nm/several-tens-nm range, atom technology, which controls atoms, and microscopic technologies, which are applied to advanced devices, such as new physics/chemistry, quantum devices, micromachines, and nanobiologies. Additionally, comprehensive R&D in fabrication, equipment, materials, sensing and device-integration technologies leads to further development of those technologies.

This Special Issue will publish selected papers from 30th International Microprocesses and Nanotechnology Conference (MNC 2017, http://mnc2017.org/), 6-9 November 2017, JeJu, Korea. Manuscripts submitted to the journal Micromachines should be extended by at least 40% compared with that of the conference.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
