Materials Special issue


Dear Colleagues,

The Eleventh International Congress on Engineered Material Platforms for Novel Wave Phenomena — Metamaterials' 2017 will be held in Marseille, France from 28 August–2 September, 2017. From its first edition in 2007, the Metamaterials Congress has established itself as one of the most important forums worldwide for the engineering, physics, applied mathematics, and material science communities to share and discuss the latest results regarding artificially engineered materials and their applications in different fields, from electromagnetics and mechanics, to hydrodynamics and thermodynamics.

To continue this exchange of ideas and visions beyond the actual Congress, we are very glad to invite you to contribute to a Special Issue in Materials. This Special Issue will contain a selection of papers that derive their contents from either oral or poster presentations at the Metamaterials’ 2017 Congress. The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide a timely and broad collection of the topics discussed at the Congress. Manuscripts shall revolve around fundamentals of artificial materials and their design, electromagnetic, acoustic, and mechanical applications of metamaterials, metasurfaces and frequency selective surfaces, new wave phenomena, quantum aspects of metamaterials, plasmonics, nonlinearity and nonreciprocity, topological insulators, fabrication and measurements techniques, etc.

We invite researchers to submit their contributions, both original research articles and review papers, to this Special Issue and look forward to reading your submissions.
