A course of the European School on Metamaterials will be held right after the Conference (1-2 September 2017).
The school topic is:
Modelling of metamaterials: numerical methods and homogenization techniques
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.
