In 2016 for the first time the event of Young Researchers in Vacuum Micro/Nano Electronics (VMNE-YR 2016) took place in St. Petersburg, Russia from 5 to 6 October, in St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University «LETI» . Leading experts in the given scope participated as invited speakers (the list is given below). Young researchers, as well as under- and postgraduate students were given the opportunity not only to listen to the course of outstanding lectures, but also to present the results of their own research on poster presentations. Proceedings were published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and indexed by Scopus, Inspec etc.

The number of participants of the event reached 97 (of them 11 Russian and 5 foreign scientific lecturers). Publications on the event appeared in the media, in News of SPETU «LETI»  (in russian), in the newspaper «Electric»  (in russian) №15 (3186), p. 3, on official portal IEEE etc.
