General information

METANANO is annual international conference where the latest research in the field of metamaterials, nanophotonics, terahertz radiation and optical engineering is presented. METANANO-2018 will be a hub for the researchers working in the fields of nanoscience, metamaterials, photonics and related topics, providing great opportunity for sharing the results of their research. The conference is organized by the Nanophotonics and Metamaterials Department of the ITMO University and is supported by Mediterranean Institute of Fundamental Physics. The conference will take place in Sochi, the unique city surrounded by Caucasus mountains from one side and by the Black Sea from another.
METANANO 2018 is held with the financial support of the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Project № 18-02-20114.

Proceedings publication

All submitted papers (2-4 pages in length) will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. The reviewers are encouraged to give constructive comments and suggestions to the authors. After the Technical Program Committee will make the decision, the authors will receive the review comments and recommendations. The authors of accepted papers will have a possibility to make updates of their papers based on the review comments and suggestions. The final versions of the Conference Proceedings will be published in IOP Journal of Physics: Conference Series and indexed in Scopus and WOS. The following downloadable packages contain the IOP Conference Proceedings templates together with the License to Publish Agreement and other additional documents you may need. They also contain detailed advice on preparing your paper, including examples showing how to prepare and style references.
Note that for invited, keynote and plenary speakers short abstracts (~250 words) are acceptable, however, we would kindly ask you to use the usual proceedings template provided on the webpage.
Please upload the revised version of your manuscript before July 1, 2018 through personal page at the Conference website.
We remind you that publication of the papers in the peer-reviewed IOP Conference Proceedings is possible only after the payment of the conference registration fee. Please note that manuscript should comply with the official IOP template.

Proceedings templates

These are standard IOP templates. Please note that we ask all authors to prepare their article in single-column format only.

Submission of conference papers

Please use Microsoft word or LaTeX templates. Paper length should be 2-4 pages.

Conference Format

All contributions will be reviewed for technical merit and content on the basis of the conference papers submitted by the authors.


All contributions should be presented in English that is the official language of the Conference. No simultaneous translation services will be provided.
