The metamaterials revolution was initiated some two decades ago, and the field has advanced rapidly – offering flexible control over many wave phenomena, which natural materials cannot provide, and new solutions for all kinds of applications using light. Artificial material designs present a wealth of previously unimaginable functionalities; Ideas map beautifully onto other areas like acoustics; New concepts and applications continue to emerge, and commercialization opportunities are becoming apparent. This conference will bring together the global community of interdisciplinary researchers working in this exciting and multi-faceted field. A broad family of metamaterials and metasurfaces will be presented, emphasizing the dramatic interactions of advanced, artificial sub-wavelength structures with electromagnetic radiation, together with their many applications.

The conference programme will feature keynote, invited, oral and poster presentations on topics including, but not limited to:

  • tunable, switchable, reconfigurable and programmable metamaterials
  • nonlinear metamaterials
  • metamaterials with extreme and near-zero parameters
  • new materials for metamaterials
  • metamaterials based on 2D- and van-der-Waals materials
  • chiral, bianisotropic and hyperbolic metamaterials
  • light generation, gain and lasing
  • transformation optics
  • sub-wavelength concentration of light and imaging
  • analytical and numerical modelling
  • approaches to manufacturing metamaterials and metasurfaces
  • waveguide and device integration of metamaterials and metasurfaces
  • sensors, light-harvesting, bio-photonic, and other applications
  • multiphysics and acoustic metamaterials with electromagnetic analogues
  • novel effects in metamaterials (PT-symmetry, quantum and topological phenomena)
  • machine learning in metamaterial design and application.
