A two-day Doctoral School (17-18 September 2016) within the EUPROMETA Doctoral Programme will be held right before the Conference.
The school topic is:
Metamaterials from THz to optics
The school offers a unique opportunity to students and young researchers to meet pioneers and leading experts in metamaterials and get exposure to the latest advancements in this burgeoning research field. Comprehensive lectures will take into account the widespread backgrounds of the audience.
Thomas Koschny (Ames Lab, Iowa, USA): Challenges and recent progress in Metamaterials and Metasurfaces at optical frequencies.
Martin Wegener (KIT, Karlsruhe, Germany): 3D optical metamaterials and 3D optical cloaking.
Ramon Jose Paniagua Dominguez (A-star, Singapore): Dielectric metamaterials and metasurfaces.
Jacob Khurgin (Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA): Losses in Plasmonics and Metamaterials and prospective techniques for their mitigation.
Kosmas Tsakmakidis (University of Ottawa, Canada): Active nanoplasmonic metamaterials: From full loss-compensation to quantum-coherence emergent self-organized criticality.
Philippe Tassin (Chalmers, Sweden): Graphene in Terahertz and Optical Metamaterials
Mikhail Lapine (University of Technology, Sydney, Australia): Design and analysis of nonlinear and tunable metamaterials.
Zuben Jacob (Purdue, USA): Thermal metamaterials.
Harald Giessen (University of Stuttgart, Germany): Complex plasmonics - chiral and nonreciprocal.
Maria Maragkou (Nature Materials, London): Inside Nature Materials.
Manolis Antonoyannakis (American Physical Society, USA): Selectivity, prestige, and high-impact in science publishing: An APS perspective
