General information

METANANO is annual international conference where the latest research in the field of metamaterials, nanophotonics, terahertz radiation and optical engineering is presented. The conference will take place in Vladivostok, which is included into National Geographic Top 10 oceanfront cities with glittering seascapes. Vladivostok is the Russian window to the Far East and the terminus of the famed Trans-Siberian Railway. Here visitors can meet a small Europe in Asia, see the longest bridges in Russia while walking along Golden Horn Bay, swim in the blue water of Sea of Japan and enjoy genial subtropical climate.

Proceedings publication

All submitted abstracts (2-4 pages in length) will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. The reviewers are encouraged to give constructive comments and suggestions to the authors. After the Technical Program Committee will make the decision, the authors will see the review comments and recommendations on their personal web pages (upon login). The authors of accepted papers will have a possibility to make updates of their papers based on the review comments and suggestions. The final versions of the abstracts will be published in AIP Conference Proceedings.

Special Issue

A special issue will be organised in "Photonics and Nanostructures - Fundamentals and Applications"for publication of selected full papers related to conference presentations. Submission deadlines and specific guidelines will be announced closer to date.

Submission of Abstracts

We expect to receive abstract, limited, if possible, by 2-4 A4 pages. Please use following template in LaTeX format.

Conference Format

All contributions will be reviewed for technical merit and content on the basis of the extended abstracts submitted by the authors.


All contributions should be presented in English that is the official language of the Conference. No simultaneous translation services will be provided.
