METANANO is an annual international conference where the latest research in the field of metamaterials, nanophotonics, terahertz radiation, and optical engineering is presented. METANANO is attracting more and more participants every year from different scientific fields – from fundamental research in Photonics and Plasmonics to business-oriented projects in RF technologies, Bionanotechnologies, and Solar Energy. Leading scientists, young researchers and industrial representatives come to network, generate new ideas and meet potential collaborators. The conference is organized by the Research Center of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials of ITMO University and supported by the Mediterranean Institute of Fundamental Physics. St. Petersburg is the second motherland of METANANO conference series (the first one is Cuba). This year we are glad to welcome you at our home on July 15-19, 2018. We aim to show you a different side of St. Petersburg, a city basking in the legacy of the FIFA 2018 World Cup and which not only boasts bridges and golden palaces but also breathtaking lakes and cliffs. Save the date and join us in St. Petersburg!
