Metamaterials 3.1 workshop will take place from Wednesday 18 to Friday 20 August 2021 included at the Grand Hotel San Michele, Cetraro, Calabria, Italy.

The symposium will consist in an invitation-only scientific workshop devoted to the next generation of electromagnetic metamaterials that are rapidly expanding into the domain of quantum technologies, artificial intelligence and topological photonics. It will also be a platform for broad discussions on the future of photonics and an occasion to celebrate the 65th year birthdays of Profs Nader Engheta and Nikolay Zheludev.

Each invited speaker will need to send his/her contribution via an online submission system which is now open.
The deadline to send the online invited contribution is Tuesday 25 May 2021, 23:59 CET Paris time
