General information

METANANO is annual international conference where the latest research in the field of metamaterials, nanophotonics, terahertz radiation and optical engineering is presented. METANANO-2018 will be a hub for the researchers working in the fields of nanoscience, metamaterials, photonics and related topics, providing great opportunity for sharing the results of their research. The conference is organized by the Nanophotonics and Metamaterials Department of the ITMO University and is supported by Mediterranean Institute of Fundamental Physics. The conference will take place in Sochi, the unique city surrounded by Caucasus mountains from one side and by the Black Sea from another.

Proceedings publication

All submitted papers (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.
