METANANO 2018, the International Conference on Metamaterials and Nanophotonics will be held in Sochi, Russia on September 17-21, 2018.

METANANO is annual 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.

In 2018 conference will be hosted by Sochi – “Summer capital of Russia”. The city is not only popular touristic resort but also one of the countrys top destination for major international events. In 2014 Sochi was the capital of Olympic Winter Games. In 2017 the XIX World Youth and Students Festival was held there. Sochi will also be one of the host cities for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and will host Formula 1 Grand Prix.

METANANO 2018 topics will focus on:

- Plasmonics and Nanophotonics

- Quantum Photonics

- Photonic Crystals

- Bionanophotonics

- Nanomaterials andNanoengineering

- Metasurfaces and theirApplications

- Nonlinear Optics
