The EIPBN Conference is recognized as the foremost international meeting dedicated to lithographic science and technology and its application to micro and nanofabrication techniques. The conference brings together engineers and scientists from industries and universities from all over the world to discuss recent progress and future trends.
More About EIPBN
The conference opens on Tuesday afternoon with a special commercial session, which features vendors of materials and equipment relevant to this conference. The plenary session is on Wednesday morning. The rest of the conference has three parallel sessions. The length of presentation is 40 minutes for invited papers and 20 minutes for contributed papers, discussion time included. A special feature of the technical program is the poster session that includes invited and contributed papers. There is only one formal poster session, but posters will be displayed for informal viewing throughout the entire conference. No distinction is made between the importance of poster and oral presentations. Click here for more on the conference program.
The Technical Program is organized by the Program Chair and assisted by volunteers that compromise the Technical Section Head panel. Over a 140 experts in the different fields of nanofabrication lend their time and expertise to suggest invited speakers, review abstracts and review manuscripts. Any researcher can be part of the Technical Section Head panel. Contact the Program Chair for information. By renewing the members of this panel the EIPBN Community is kept vibrant and up-to-date with all the recent advances in nanofabrication technology.
History of EIPBN

Limited funds are available to support student travel. The Conference Chair must receive a request for support from the student’s advisor by May 1. Decisions about student support will be returned by about May 15.
The EIPBN Conference is incorporated as a non-profit organization in the State of New Jersey. The Organizing Committee serve as the corporate Board of Directors, with the Conference Chair having the Responsibilities of CEO for the year in which he/she serves. The Organizing Committee has 8 members. Each year, 2 Organizing Committee members are elected for a 5 year term. Initially, they participate in the organization of the conference for 2 years. In the 3rd year of their term, they run the conference as Conference and Program Chairs. For the remaining 2 years of their term, they assist the successor chairs in their duties.Once the 5 year term is completed, Organizing Committee members become permanent members of the Advisory Committee.

EIPBN is the foremost conference on Nanofabrication in the US. EIPBN also has “sister” conferences to be a forum for presentations of similar topics in nanofabrication in Europe and Asia.The Premier Nanofabrication Conference in Europe is the Micro-and Nano-Enginering conference. For more information, visit http://www.mne2014.org/The premier Nanofabrication Conference in Asia is the Microprocess and Nanotechnology Conference conference. For more information on MNC, visit http://imnc.jp/
In addition to these affiliated conferences, there are related conferences on certain topics that may be of special interest to researchers in our nanofabrication community. These are:
Gordon Research Conferences, covering multiple topics in advanced scientific and technology research.
The Lithography Workshop, specializing in advanced lithography
The Nanoimprint and Nanoprint Technology (NNT) Conference, specializing in nanoimprint technology
