The first Indo-French Conference on Frontiers in Photonics and Metamaterials-2020 (IFCFPM) is being jointly organised by MEC and the École Centrales (France), to be held on 3rd and 4th of April, 2020.

The primary aim of IFCFPM is to provide a platform for bringing together global experts and researchers to disseminate and highlight novel contributions and challenges and, as an outcome, motivate innovation in the field of Photonics and Metamaterials.


We invite original papers on emerging trends and significant development in the area of photonics and metamatirials.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Fibre Optics
  • Biophotonics
  • Optical and Terahertz Wave Guides
  • Mid-IR and THz Photonics
  • Novel Optical Sensors
  • Silicon Photonics
  • Laser Sensors
  • Dielectric and Plasmonic Metamaterials
  • Optical and mechanical storage devices
  • Nanophotonics
  • Opto-mechanical Metamaterials
  • Integrated Photonics
