Physical Review Journals Symposium

The conference organizers and the editors of Physical Review Letters, Physical Review X, Physical Review B, Physical Review Applied, and Physical Review Materials invite you to a Special Session dedicated to a few select works published recently in the Physical Review journals, within and beyond the traditional domain of metamaterials research.

The session will be followed by a meet-and-greet event with the Physical Review editors.

Confirmed Invited Speakers and Presentation Titles:

  • Oliver Benson, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin, “Strong coupling between surface plasmon polaritons and molecular vibrations"
  • Arno Rauschenbeutel, Technische Universitat Wien, “Nonreciprocal Quantum Optical Devices Based on Chiral Interaction between Atoms and Photons with Transverse Spin”
  • Fu Liu, Aalto University, “Invisibility cloaking using pseudomagnetic field for photon”
  • Sergey I. Bozhevolnyi, University of Southern Denmark,
    "Acoustic Metamaterial Configurations Based on Detuned Acoustic Resonators Side-Attached to Waveguides"

Physical Review editors:

  • Mu Wang, Editor, Physical Review Letters & Physical Review Materials
  • Ling Miao, Managing Editor, Physical Review X
  • Manolis Antonoyiannakis, Associate Editor, Physical Review B
  • Julie Kim-Zajonz, Managing Editor, Physical Review Applied


Physical Review Journals Awards

The Congress General Chairs - Profs. Filiberto Bilotti and Andrea Alù - are very proud to announce the 2017 Best Paper Awards and 2017 Best Poster Award, sponsored by APS Physics.

The Best Paper Awards have been created to recognize the scientific quality of research in three different domains (Applied/Theory/Experiments) whereas the Best Poster Award is not related to a specific domain.

All papers/posters presented at the conference, except for invited and plenary contributions, are eligible.

Each award includes a certificate and an honorarium of €200 to be shared among the authors. The winner will be announced during the conference closing ceremony.
