METAMATERIALS' 2019 - The 13th International Congress on Artificial Materials for Novel Wave Phenomena


会议名称:METAMATERIALS' 2019 - The 13th International Congress on Artificial Materials for Novel Wave Phenomena










The Thirteenth International Congress on Artificial Materials for Novel Wave Phenomena – Metamaterials'2019, will comprise a 4-day Conference (16–19 September), and a 2-day Doctoral School (20–21 September). Organized by the METAMORPHOSE VI AISBL (, this Congress follows the success of Metamaterials 2007-2018 and continues the traditions of the highly successful series of International Conferences on Complex Media and Metamaterials (Bianisotropics) and Rome International Workshops on Metamaterials and Special Materials for Electromagnetic Applications and Telecommunications. The Congress will provide a unique topical forum to share the latest results of the metamaterials research in Europe and worldwide. It will bring together the engineering, physics, applied mathematics and material science communities working on artificial materials and their applications in electromagnetism/optics, acoustics/mechanics, transport, and multi-physics.


We interpret metamaterials as rationally designed composites, the effective properties of which go beyond their bulk ingredients, qualitatively and/or quantitatively.

We accept papers in any combination out of the following 8 categories:

Category 1 - Area

•Electromagnetic from DC to optical and beyond (including, e.g., metallic, dielectric, magnetic, and superconducting ingredients)

•Acoustic and mechanical (including, e.g., seismic)

•Transport (including, e.g., nanoelectronics, and thermal transport)


Category 2 - Geometry

•1D, 2D, and 3D metamaterials and metasurfaces

•(1+1)D, (2+1)D, and (3+1)D space-time metamaterials and metasurfaces

•Individual meta-atoms

•Meta-systems (including, e.g., gradient metamaterials, metamaterials in architectures designed by coordinate transformations, as well as far-field and near-field imaging systems)

Category 3 - Arrangement



Category 4 - Frequency


•Dynamic (including wave propagation)

Category 5 - Type



Category 6 - Status

•Fixed properties

•Tunable properties (including, e.g., modulators, switchable properties, software-defined, and adaptive properties)

Category 7 - Physical basis

•Classical (linear and nonlinear, including, e.g., multistable and programmable)


Category 8 - Technology Readiness Level

•Effective-medium theories and homogenization (including, e.g., high-frequency and high-contrast homogenization and spatial dispersion modelling)

•Design (including, e.g., analytical approaches, topology optimization, numerical methods, machine and deep learning, bio-inspiration)

•Fabrication and characterization (including, e.g., new manufacturing approaches, 3D additive manufacturing, parameter retrieval, reliability testing, and fatigue testing)

•Applications and commercialization (including, e.g., antennas, sensing, spectral and spatial filtering, civil engineering, marine engineering, biology, and earthquake protection)

In addition, we accept papers on composites, plasmonics, photonic crystals, phononic crystals, and invisibility cloaking if related to the scope of the congress in some way.
