    Welcome to META CRUISE 2018!

    For its 10th Anniversary, META 2018 will be an extraordinary event - the most spectacular conference we ever arranged! We will embark on the Dream-class cruise ship Costa Diadema, the largest vessel flying an Italian flag. We will be sailing together in the Western Mediterranean for 8 days and visiting 6 exciting cities. Don’t miss to join, with your families, this once-in-a lifetime experience!

     

    META CRUISE 2018, will be the opportunity to present your recent results, and meet and network with world renowned experts. The program will facilitate discussions on various current hot topics such as metasurfaces & metadevices, 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.

     

    Enjoy a 8-day, round-trip cruise aboard Costa Diadema:
    Marseille - Barcelona - Palma de Mallorca - Cagliari - Roma - Savona - Marseille


    Year after year, META becomes a MUST ATTEND Event!

    July 25, 2016 – July 28, 2016

    Join us for the next edition, META 2017, in Korea:

    meta17.metaconferences.org

    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.

    META'16 will be held in conjunction with the 4th Advanced Electromagnetics Symposium (AES 2016). A registered participant to one of the events can attend sessions in both events but can only present papers in the event he is registered in. In order to present papers in both events, one needs to register for each.
