Progress Review
(Please contact us before preparation)
Progress Reviews provide concise, efficient overviews covering the latest progresses in a specific research area of applied physics. It can include or be largely based on the recent results from the author(s). Manuscripts should be written as concisely as possible although no limitation on length is specified.
Regular Paper A Regular Paper is an original paper with comprehensive, detailed descriptions of the research work, presenting a fully developed discussion on the results obtained in relevant fields of applied physics. It must provide sufficient and self-contained information to ensure the repeatability of experiments and analyses by readers. There is no length limit. A Regular Paper should include sections with titles.
Brief Note Brief Notes are short reports on significant improvements in instrumentation, fabrication processes, measurement techniques, and theoretical analyses, and also serve as an archive of knowledge useful for applied physics. The maximum length is 2,700 words and 3 single-column width figures. An abstract of no more than 100 words should be provided and appropriate references should be listed. Other than this, they should not be divided into sections.

The organizing committee of M&BE10 established the Student Presentation Award and the Young Scientist Presentation Award to encourage students and young scientists who have been working diligently in this research field. The award winners will be announced at the closing ceremony on 27 June 2019.

Student Presentation Award

Students who made excellent presentations will be awarded with the M&BE10 Student Presentation Award. All presenters without regard to oral and poster categorized as students, who are enrolled in a technical college, a university or a graduate school, are automatically registered as candidates for this award.

Young Scientist Presentation Award

The M&BE10 Young Scientist Presentation Award will be given to young scientists who made outstanding poster or oral presentations. All young researchers who are 35 years old or younger (on 27 June 2019), excluding students, are able to apply for this award. The applicants must register at the moment of abstract submission. If you will entry this competition, please check "Entry" on the abstract submission system.

Instructions for Presenters

Oral Presentations

  The plenary lectures, the invited talks and the general oral presentations are scheduled for 40 minutes, 30 minutes and 15 minutes each, respectively, including discussions. Elapsed time for PC booting or cable connection procedure should be included in your presentation time.
 Since the schedule is quite tight, it is strongly recommended that your presentation file will be copied into the equipped PC (Windows10, PowerPoint2016) during the break time before your presentation. (If you use your own PC, it is strongly recommended to complete your PC connection test before your presentation.)
 Standard audio-visual equipment available includes an LCD projector with a VGA or HDMI connection, a laser pointer, and a microphone.

Poster Presentations

(I: 17:30 - 19:00 on 25 June) (II: 12:30 - 14:00 on 26 June)

  The Poster Sessions will be held in the Reception Hall 1 and Room3&4 of the 2nd floor. Posters for session I and II should be set up before 17:30 on 25 June and 12:30 on 26 June, respectively. The first half for the odd-number presentation and the second half for the even-number one.
 The size of each panel is 120 cm wide x 180 cm height. The poster should be put on the board so that the program number is visible. Pins for fixing the posters on the board will be provided on the venue. The paper title, author(s)' name(s) and affiliation(s) should be prepared by the author(s), and posted on top of the panel.
 Don’t forget to take off your poster just after the poster session, otherwise the posters will be disposed.

Abstract Submission

  • All submitted abstracts have been accepted through peer review.
  • If you did not received "M&BE10 Paper Review Results [important notice]", please confirm your registered e-mail adress and contct us.

Abstract Publication

The publication date of the abstract is scheduled on June 25th, 2019.

Topics covered include

  • Fabrications and Characterization
  • Functional Materials
    (LC, polymer, soft material, photonic material etc.)
  • Organic Devices and Applications
  • Nanobiotechnology and Biomedical
  • Sensors and Actuators
  • Organic Photovoltaics and Energy Harvesting

What's M&BE


Recent progress in every aspect of science and technology related with electronics and photonics using organic molecules, polymers and bio-related materials will be discussed at the proposed conference (M&BE10). Promotion of research communications with researchers from Asian countries is also intended.


Topics on basic studies such as fabrication and characterization of thin films, interfacial phenomena, spectroscopy, and single-molecule manipulations, as well as application-oriented studies, related to LEDs, FETs, energy-harvesting devices (solar cell, thermoelectrics, piezoelectrics, etc), memory devices, biochips, biosensors and so on, are all included. A limited number of plenary and invited lectures by overseas guest speakers, as well as domestic guest speakers, will be arranged. Contributed papers will be presented in both oral and poster sessions.


The Molecular Electronics and Bioelectronics Division of the Japan Society of Applied Physics has continued the organization of the biennial International Conference on Molecular Electronics and Bioelectronics (M&BE) since its inception in 2001. The first conference was held at Awaji Island, Japan in 2001, and the 2nd to 4th conferences were in Tokyo, in 2003, 2005 and 2007, and 5th conference was in Miyazaki in 2009. The 6th conference in Sendai in 2011 was unfortunately cancelled for all oral and poster presentation programs by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The 7th and 8th conference were successfully held in Fukuoka and Tokyo in 2013 and 2015, respectively. The last meeting (9th conference) took place in Ishikawa in 2017.
