META 2019, the 10th International Conference on Metamaterials, Photonic Crystals and Plasmonics

Instituto Superior Técnico, Lisbon, Portugal

July 23, 2019 – July 26, 2019

Welcome to META 2019!

Be a part of META'19, the world’s leading conference on nanophotonics and metamaterials, and take 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.
