Acoustic Metamaterials is a class of artificial structure designed to control, direct, and manipulate sonic waves, which have wave manipulation functionalities beyond the defined limits of natural materials. Within a time span of 20 years, acoustic metamaterials have emerged and rapidly developed, from acoustic waves, water waves to elastic waves in solids more recently. This symposium aims at gathering the experts in the field of acoustic metamaterials, and discuss the recent development of these metamaterials, including the design, novel physics and application based on acoustic metamaterials.


  1. Acoustic metameterials design and practical applications;
  2. Sound wave control using acoustic metamaterials;
  3. Anisotropic acoustic metamaterial;
