META’16, the 7th International Conference on Metamaterials, Photonic Crystals and Plasmonics

Convention & Exhibition Centre, Torremolinos (Malaga), Spain

July 25, 2016 – July 28, 2016

Since its foundation in 2008, META has grown into the major conference in the field of Nanophotonics, Metamaterials and Photonic Crystals, with events spanning four continents: Marrakesh (2008), Cairo (2010), Paris (2012), Dubai (2013), Singapore (2014) and New York (2015).

Be a part of META'16 and take the opportunity to present your recent results, and meet and network with experts. The program will facilitate discussions on various current hot topics such as metasurfaces, topological effects in optics, two-dimensional materials, light-matter interaction in nanocavities, plasmonic circuits, thermal engineering, quantum photonic systems, etc. Featuring several plenary, keynote and invited speakers, the program will provide insights into the latest trends and strategies actionable to deal with the practical challenges faced by the community.

META'16 will be held in Torremolinos just a step from the world-famous beaches of the Costa del Sol and a few minutes from Malaga, a vibrant and charming Mediterranean city that treasures a cultural heritage from 28 centuries and the birthplace of Pablo Picasso.
