Paper Numbering: Proceedings of SPIE follow an e-First publication model, with papers published first online and then in print. Papers are published as they are submitted and meet publication criteria. A unique citation identifier (CID) number is assigned to each article at the time of the first publication. Utilization of CIDs allows articles to be fully citable as soon as they are published online, and connects the same identifier to all online, print, and electronic versions of the publication. SPIE uses a six-digit CID article numbering system in which:

  • The first four digits correspond to the SPIE volume number.

  • The last two digits indicate publication order within the volume using a Base 36 numbering system employing both numerals and letters. These two-number sets start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B … 0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

The CID Number appears on each page of the manuscript. The complete citation is used on the first page, and an abbreviated version on subsequent pages.


Numbers in the index correspond to the last two digits of the six-digit citation identifier (CID) article numbering system used in Proceedings of SPIE. The first four digits reflect the volume number. Base 36 numbering is employed for the last two digits and indicates the order of articles within the volume. Numbers start with 00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B…0Z, followed by 10-1Z, 20-2Z, etc.

This 10th conference (the fifth one held in Prague) in a series of SPIE conferences on metamaterials has brought together the scientific communities of metamaterials, plasmonics, and nanophotonics. The conference provided a forum for both researchers and industry professionals and stimulated interaction between both communities.

In invited lectures the latest achievements in the field of hyperbolic, all–dielectric metamaterials, transformation optics, energy conversion, magnetoplamonics and metasurfaces have been reviewed. New ways to design nonlinearities in hyperbolic plasmonic materials and novel structures with parity-time (PT) symmetry related functionalities in metamaterials and in plasmonics have been reviewed. The progress in the investigation of the properties of meta-atoms, resonant nanostructures in graphene in terahertz range and in computational methods have been presented by top experts in the field. A novel approach in dealing with a thin conductive sheet within the numerical DGTD method has been demonstrated in a system consisting of graphene sheets and alternating graphene and dielectric layers. In the area of energy conversion, an update in investigation of heat transfer at the nanoscale was reported. Namely, it has been demonstrated how the evanescent near-field can be harnessed in a thermal memory device and the role of the thermal self-oscillations in the radiative heat exchange has been analyzed. In the field of photovoltaics several promising designs based on surface plasmon-enhanced light harvesting and functional graphene nanostructures for organic solar cells have been reported. It has been demonstrated how the dielectric negative index metamaterials can be used in design of plasmonic devices. In several presentations recent progress in using of unique properties of negative index low loss microwave metamaterials in the antenna applications has been reported. Also, in the field of magneto-plasmonics, nanostructures in which an active control of light has been employed was demonstrated as well as the possibility to control light polarization on the femtosecond scale.

As chairs of this meeting, we would like to express our thanks to all those participants who contributed through their presentations, to the session chairs and to the programme committee members.
