Industrial Applications of Acoustic Metamaterials

Industrial Applications of Acoustic Metamaterials, Marseille, 1 September 2017.

Aim and scope

The GdR META and the COST Action DENORMS (CA15125) have the great pleasure to announce and invite you to join us in Marseille for a thematic day dedicated to Industrial applications of acoustic metamaterials. This event aims at gathering industrial and academic partners to discuss and exchange views. It will be structured around presentations given by leading industrial partners in various fields of applications. The talks will introduce current issues, new trends or metamaterial-based solutions already implemented in a practical context. Coffee breaks, poster sessions and panel discussions will take place throughout the day in order to foster informal exchanges among the participants. This thematic day is organized as a side event of the METAMATERIALS 2017 Congress, allowing the participants to combine an industrial and practical perspective on acoustic metamaterials with an overview of the state-of-the art of the domain.


Participation is open to all, students, researchers, engineers or technical staff from academia or industry. Registration is free of charge but required by July 14th by filling in the registration form.
