International Metamaterials Conference

Professor Sir John Pendry ​​FRS, Chair in Theoretical Solid State Physics at Imperial College London, will deliver the opening keynote address. 

Over a day, high-profile speakers and exclusive exhibitors will be sharing their expertise and exploring the functionalities of these smart materials by sector and application. They will especially highlight their benefits and challenges to be addressed in their design and manufacture. We will also try to answer the question: how can we make metamaterials more commercially attractive?


This event will take place over three live streams covering nine competitive sectors that hold the highest potential for metamaterials to add value in innovation and business opportunities:

Stream 1: 

  • Aerospace and Aviation
  • Creative Industries 
  • Consumer Electronics & Photonics

Stream 2: 

  • Acoustics & Thermal 
  • Built Environment & Construction
  • Comms & Antennas 

Stream 3: 

  • Healthcare 
  • Transport & Automotive 
  • Energy Generation Transmission & Storage

Each plenary sector presentation will end with a dedicated Q&A session. Attendees will also have plenty of opportunity to network.
