NANOMETA 2017, The 6th International Topical Meeting on Nanophotonics and Metamaterials, will take place from 4 to 7 January 2017 in Seefeld (Tirol), Austria.

Please note following important dates:

  • Abstract submission opens on: 16 August 2016 
  • Deadline for abstract submissions: 10 October 2016

NANOMETA 2017 aims to bring together the international Nanotechnology, Photonics and Materials research communities where most recent and challenging results and plans are discussed in the informal setting in a glorious mountaineering resort. The technical programme will include invited and selected contributed papers in the areas of:
• Plasmonics, Metamaterials and Metadevices
• Quantum and Topological Nanophotonics
• New Materials for Nanophotonics
• Optical Super-resolution

The conference will be organised in two oral parallel sessions (Nanophotonics and Metamaterials) and will feature joint plenary, tutorial and post-deadline sessions. The conference timetable will be arranged in a way that permits mid-day breaks for recreational activities and informal contact between participants.

Editorial – EPS and Physics for Development

A round table on the theme “Physics for Development” was organised during the Council Meeting of the European Physical Society (EPS) on 1 April 2016. There is no doubt that science and technology are essential elements to meet the challenges for sustainable development. Fundamental and applied scientific research lay the foundations for new methodologies to identify, clarify and provide solutions to global challenges. Science contributes to social and technological progress, improving the quality of life through advances in medicine, agriculture, energy supply, education, communication, etc. Science is also in itself a way of crossing national, cultural and mental borders by fostering international cooperation.
