For its 10th Anniversary, META 2018 will be a memorable event - the most spectacular conference we ever arranged! We will embark on the Dream-class cruise ship Costa Diadema, the largest vessel flying an Italian flag. We will be sailing together in the Western Mediterranean for 8 days and visiting 6 exciting cities. Don’t miss to join, with your families, this once-in-a lifetime experience!
META 2018 will be the opportunity to present your recent results, and meet and network with world renowned experts in Nanophotonics and Metamaterials. The program will facilitate discussions on various current hot topics such as metasurfaces & metadevices, topological effects in optics, two-dimensional materials, light-matter interaction in nanocavities, plasmonic circuits, thermal engineering, quantum photonic systems, etc. Featuring several plenary, keynote and invited speakers, the program will provide insights into the latest trends and strategies actionable to deal with the practical challenges faced by the community.
After the successful conference in Girona last year, the ICTON 2018 conference will take place in Bucharest, capital of Romania, from Sunday July 1st to Thursday July 5th, 2018. The ICTON 2018 will be the 20th anniversary conference from ICTON series. The scope of the Conference is focused on the applications of transparent and all-optical technologies in telecommunications, computing and novel applications. Special sessions on superresolution light microscopy techniques and image processing will be included in the conference programme.
Sensors are vital components of smart manufacturing, artificial Intelligence, Cyber–Physical System (CPS) and Internet of Things (IoT) for industry 4.0. For more advanced creations, biologists, engineers, physicists and chemists are all endeavoring to provide innovative technical sensors. This year, 2018, the well-known journal, Sensors, is going to hold the international conference in Kenting, which is located in the south of Taiwan—taking place in Asia for the first time. I3S embraces all professionals from industry, academia and government to discuss the latest developments and breakthroughs of sensor technology and related subjects. During the conference, attendees, from a range of research areas, will all gather together to share different aspects and establish new mutually beneficial collaborations across different fields.
We sincerely look forward to your participation in I3S2018.
Nanophotonics in the last years is showing clearly its inclusive nature. Several disciplines are taking advantages in using novel tools derived from the astonishing progress in Nanophotonics, for exploring novel fundamental properties of materials on different length scale. The optical methods, both experimental and theoretical, are ubiquitous in several fields facilitating the development of a common language even for disciplines considered far, just a few years ago.
This third edition of NANOP confirms a broad topics list with the aim of bridging the macro with the molecular world.
This year, the Spanish Network of Advanced Light Microscopy (REMOA, www.remoa.net) and the Portuguese Platform for Bioimaging (www.ppbi.pt) will join for a second time following the former successful meeting 2016 in Bilbao (Spain) in order to celebrate the Spanish-Portuguese Meeting for Advanced Optical Microscopy (SPAOM2018). This event will take place in Granada (Spain) from the 23rd to 26th (Tuesday to Friday) of October 2018.
The Scientific Committee of the Congress has defined an appealing scientific program, full of opportunities for bioimaging scientists and professionals from Spain, Portugal and beyond to meet and interact within this growing community. These opportunities include lectures by keynote speakers, invited speakers, selected speakers, numerous flash communications, poster presentations, a broad commercial exhibition with company workshops, broad participation of REMOA/PPBI members in community technological workshops and of course social events.
We would like to cordially invite you to participate in our meeting. The event will take place in Granada, the capital city of the province located in the Andalusian region (Southern Spain), just at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains range, and just an hour from the Mediterranean and the tropical coast by car. Granada’s vast heritage includes the Alhambra Moorish citadel (UNESCO’s World Heritage Site) and the Generalife palaces, which combine Nasrid works of art with rich architecture embracing numerous Renaissance and Baroque buildings. Granada is also a centre of scientific excellence, and has been recently awarded the official distinction of “City of Science and Innovation” by the Spanish Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, to recognise the activity of the numerous research institutes, technological infrastructures and institutions, including the prestigious University of Granada.
