Metamaterials'2020 - The 14th International Congress on Artificial Materials for Novel Wave Phenomena

28 September - 3 October 2020, New York, United States

The Fourteenth International Congress on Artificial Materials for Novel Wave Phenomena – Metamaterials2020, will comprise a 4-day Conference (28 September – October 1), and a 2-day Doctoral School (2–3 October). Co-organized by the METAMORPHOSE VI AISBL ( and the The City University of New York (CUNY), this Congress follows the success of Metamaterials2007-2019 and continues the traditions of the highly successful series of International Conferences on Complex Media and Metamaterials (Bianisotropics) and Rome International Workshops on Metamaterials and Special Materials for Electromagnetic Applications and Telecommunications. The Congress will provide a unique topical forum to share the latest results of the metamaterials research. It will bring together the engineering, physics, applied mathematics and material science communities working on artificial materials and their applications in electromagnetism/optics, acoustics/mechanics, transport, and multi-physics.

The Conference includes plenary presentations given by leading scientists in the metamaterials research field and will address the main tendencies and discoveries in this field. Leading experts will present invited talks, which will review the state-of-the-art and address the latest advancements in their respective areas. The technical oral talks and interactive poster sessions will encompass a broad range of themes, from fundamental theory of metamaterials to innovative applications in electromagnetism/optics, acoustics/ mechanics, transport, and multi-physics.

We interpret metamaterials as rationally designed composites, the effective properties of which go beyond their bulk ingredients, qualitatively and/or quantitatively.
