Abstract Submission

Submit your abstracts online using converia!

The purpose of an abstract submitted to MME is twofold. Firstly, it serves to inform the program committee what new results you propose to present. Therefore, it is important within the first few sentences to state what your primary result is. It is also important to identify how the new work differs from previous work from your own group and from other groups. For example: “In this paper we present for the first time a systematic investigation for the dielectric charging in silicon nitride films for RF MEMS capacitive switches based on Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy.” Secondly, the accepted abstracts will be collected and distributed among the MME participants on USB sticks, so layout and clear figures are important.

After an introduction of the basic ideas and how the work relates to other work, present detailed descriptions of methods, device structures, and examples of specific results, either experimental or theoretical. Figures and tables can support these results. After presentation of results, it is useful to compare specific results with related work, and also to comment on the broader impact of the results.

Prepare your abstract (four pages) following the examples in the LaTeX or Word templates provided below. Do not, for whatever reason, modify the layout. Write your abstract in English. The first author listed should be the presenting author. Convert your abstract to PDF format, and upload it with converia before July 2, 2012.

Introduction of the Poster

As it is common with MME conferences, each contributing author will present 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 2 minutes presentation time. 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 and list of authors, and one or two provoking images which raise curiosity. Profound discussions will be held at the posters during the poster session.

For the flash presentation you should make a PowerPoint presentation consisting of at most two slides. A template is given below.

Design of the Poster

Posters size should be 70 cm in width and 100 cm in height.

Make your poster easy to identify, including 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.

Each poster will be presented during one of the poster 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.
