Welcome on the SAM - Xàtiva 2018 website

Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials


The fifth DENORMS workshop "Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials” (SAM) will be held from 7th to 9th November 2018 in Xàtiva (Spain), organised by YRAM (Young Researchers in Acoustic Metamaterials) and the Universitat Politècnica de València.


The first Symposium on Acoustic Metamaterials is targeted to Early Career Investigators  (i.e. researcher whose career spun less than 8 years since the date of the PhD) and PhD candidates and aims at sharing new advances and breakthroughs as well as fostering the community of young researchers in the field of acoustic metamaterials. The first SAM will be organised around 6 different sessions comprising 20 min talks and 4 plenary lectures.

Among other topics, discussions will be related to:

  • Acoustic/elastic metamaterials and phononic crystals,
  • Acoustic/elastic metasurfaces,
  • Non-reciprocal manipulation of acoustic/elastic waves,
  • Acoustic/elastic meta-devices based on transformation acoustics, parity-time symmetric acoustics, topological acoustics,
  • Novel physical concepts for harnessing acoustic/elastic waves,
  • New applications of metamaterial-based functional devices for acoustic sensing, cloaking, imaging, absorption, energy harvesting,
  • ...


Plenary speakers are:

  •  Johan Christensen (UC3M) - confirmed
  •  Kestutis Staliunas (ICREA) - confirmed
  •  Fabrice Lemoult (Institut Langevin - ESPCI ParisTech & CNRS) - confirmed


Several social activities will be organised during the symposium.

Facebook event has also been created and would be used to share/discuss with other participants.
