The 5th International Topical Meeting on Nanophotonics and Metamaterials [NANOMETA 2015] will take place from 5-8 January 2015 in Seefeld, Austria. It will be included as an activity in the International Year of Light endorsed by the United Nations. NANOMETA 2015 continues the series of meetings that began in 2007.
During the plenary and parallel sessions, attendees will be able to discuss the most recent results in the fields of metamaterials, nanophotonics, plasmonics, hybrid and quantum materials as well as localisation of light and optical super-resolution.
Abstract submission will open on 8 August 2014 and will close on 10 October 2014. Registration will be open from 10 September and will close on 17 December 2014.
More information on NANOMETA 2015 is available on the NANOMETA 2015 website.
During the conference, the Science of Light Prize of the European Physical Society [EPS] will be awarded. The prize was created in 2012 by the EPS Quantum Electronics & Optics Division [QEOD]. The prize is awarded every 2 years in recognition of recent work by one or more individuals (no more than three) for scientific excellence in the area of electromagnetic science in its broadest sense, across the entire spectrum of electromagnetic waves.
The first Prize for Research into the Science of Light was awarded during NANOMETA 2013 on 3 January 2013 in Seefeld, Austria, to Philip St J. Russell from the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light in Erlangen, Germany.
The 2015 Edition of the Prize for Research into the Science of Light is now open for nominations. Nomination can be submitted on the QEOD website.
