School information

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.
