Microelectronic Engineering

Special issue on "Nano and Giga Challenges in Microelectronics"

This call for papers is an endeavor of the editorial teams of the Microelectronic Engineering journal and the Organizers of the 2nd Symposium and Summer School on Nano & Giga Challenges in Microelectronics (Krakow, Poland, September 13-17, 2004).

The aim of Microelectronic Engineering is to bring together in one publication the results of international work in the rapidly expanding field of integrated microelectronic. Microelectronic Engineering is an archival, peer-reviewed journal. It publishes full research papers, short communications, and review articles. The scope of this Journal includes materials, methods and designs for microfabrication, processing and inspection for microelectronic and nanoelectronic elements.

The organizers of Nano & Giga Forums intend to provide a creative environment for researchers, managers, students and everyone else involved in the exciting and expanding world of nanoscience and nanotechnology and its “electronic department” in particular. The essential enabler of the future information society -- electronics -- is at the threshold of a new phase, requiring radical innovations in materials and processing. The future generations of technology will only be possible when significant progress in physics, chemistry, material sciences, and other related disciplines, is achieved. Following the first successful Summer School and Symposium in Moscow (NGCM2002), the second biennial meeting is held in Cracow, Poland in 2004 hosted by Jagiellonian University and FQS Poland (Fujitsu group).

Subject coverage

The Special issue of the Microelectronic Engineering journal will address the most advanced state of the art research presented at the NGCM2004 meeting in Cracow. The original experimental and computational research papers are invited and equally welcome, which cover scientific and advanced technological problems related to the ultimate merge of micro- nano- and molecular electronics in specific areas, such as:

  • atomic scale design: theory and experiment
  • bio- and molecular electronics
  • high frequency electronics
  • fabrication of nanodevices
  • magnetic materials and spintronics
  • materials and processes for integrated and subwave optoelectronics
  • new materials for gates and gate dielectrics in FETs
  • non-silicon materials and devices
  • quantum effects in devices
  • system design technologies

Notes for the intended authors

All papers will be peer reviewed. A guide for authors, sample copies and other relevant information for submitting papers are available in the Papers Submission section of the Journal as well as on the NGCM2004 meeting web site

Participants of the NGCM2004 meeting are encouraged to bring three copies of their manuscripts to the conference in Krakow. All manuscripts should be submitted electronically by uploading the paper as described at or by sending e-mail to

Important dates
