Metamaterials 3.1 workshop will take place from 1 to 5 August 2022 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 65+2th 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 Friday 6 May 2022, 23:59 CET Paris time
