Publication Information

Contributing authors should indicate their preference for oral or poster presentations in the box provided on the abstract submission template.  Abstracts from invited authors will automatically be accepted as an oral presentation. In the acceptance e-mail, authors will be notified of the format for their presentation.

Authors of accepted presentations are encouraged but not required to submit their full manuscripts for publication reviewing as journal articles or book chapters.

The following are possible publishing titles:

  • Nanoscale Research Letters (Springer)
    Open access publishing is not without costs. Fee to be paid by the author if the article is accepted for publication.
  • Journal of Semiconductors  (IOP)
  • Journal of Electronic Science and Technology 
    JEST (International), Journal of Electronic Science and Technology (ISSN 1674-862X), is a peer-reviewed and open-access periodical, devoted to the purpose of providing rapid publication of original and significant contributions relating to state-of-the-art achievements in electronic science and technology. JEST sincerely invites original manuscripts (include original research articles as well as review articles) for ‘Special Section on Energy, Materials, and Nanotechnology and ‘Special Section on Quantum Technology’ in JEST. All the manuscripts will undergo the peer-review organized by EMN Conference publication committee. And the papers accepted by these two Special Sections will be freely open accessed.

Important note for full paper submitter

Full papers should be received to the conference registration desk. (Three hard copies to the conference registration desk)

Format: After the full paper submission, committees are going to make decisions on which journal (books) they should be assigned. (Authors can make a suggestion on which journal  (book) they wish to publish.) Thus, please prepare the manuscript in a general scientific journal format including ‘title, author list, abstract, introduction, experimental, results & discussion and conclusion’. Once, a decision is made, a guideline on how to prepare and submit will be kindly directed to corresponding author(s).

Scope: Authors can make a suggestion on which journal (book) they wish to publish and thus, please prepare the manuscripts to be appropriate (especially, the title and abstract) to the scopes of journals (or books) in order to avoid undesired journal assignment.

Review Process: After the journal (or book) assignment by committees, a regular review process with two or more referees is going to be done.


The conference will not provide accommodation, you can reserve a room at the conference hotel with group rate.
