Call for Papers
Education in Displays,
Nano-, and Microfabrication

The Journal of the SID (JSID) is soliciting original contributed papers in Education in Displays, Nano-, and Microfabrication, to be published in a special section in the first quarter of 2021. More information about the journal, its scope, and a link to past issues can be found at:, more information about SID can be found at

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Hybrid and remote learning approaches

Curricular resources and models available on microfabrication teaching

Reviews of efficacy of teaching modes

Assessment of display, microfabrication, and engineering education

Laboratories in the field and under remote learning conditions

Career impact of microfabrication teaching and learning

This special section will be guest edited by Drs. Pat Watson (University of Pennsylvania) and Ioannis Kymissis (Columbia University).

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts online in electronic files to the JSID at:

Authors submitting their manuscript must identify their manuscripts as being submitted for the Special Section by selecting “Special Section Paper” as the paper type. The Information for Authors document provides a complete set of guidelines and requirements required for the preparation and submission of a manuscript, including a discussion of the formatting requirements. Journal page charges are waived upon application to the editor for all articles in this special section.

The deadline for the submission of manuscripts is December 31, 2020

Please direct any questions to the special section editors at, gewatson@seas.upenn, or to the editor of JSID at
