2) Title: Photonic Metamaterials

Organizer: Tatjana Gric, Department of Electronic Systems, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University

E-mail: Tatjana.Gric@Dal.Ca


Metamaterials have, in the last few decades, inspired scientists and engineers to think about waves beyond traditional constraints imposed by materials in which they propagate, conceiving new functionalities, such as subwavelength imaging, invisibility cloaking and broadband ultraslow light. While mainly for ease of fabrication, many of the metamaterials concepts have initially been demonstrated at longer wavelengths and for microwaves, metamaterials have subsequently moved to photonic frequencies and the nanoscale. At the same time, metamaterials are recently embedding new quantum materials such as graphene, dielectric nanostructures and, as metasurfaces, surface geometries and surface waves while also embracing new functionalities such as nonlinearity, quantum gain and strong light-matter coupling.
This Session, "Photonic Metamaterials" is devoted to exhibiting the current state of the art of the dynamic and vibrant field of photonic metamaterials reaching across various disciplines, suggesting exciting applications in chemistry, material science, biology, medicine, and engineering. It will illuminate recent advances in the wider photonic metamaterials field, such as (to mention a few) active metamaterials and metasurfaces, self-organized nanoplasmonic metamaterials, graphene metamaterials, metamaterials with negative or vanishing refractive index and topological metamaterials facilitating ultraslow broadband waves on the nanoscale and novel applications, such as stopped-light lasing.

6) Title: 3th Symposium on Computational Simulation and Experimental Analysis of Hygrothermal Phenomena in Building Envelopes

Organizer: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Zuzana Hlaváčová, Department of Physics, Faculty of Engineering, Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra, Trieda Andreja Hlinku 2, 94976 Nitra, Slovak Republic



The overall degradation of a building material or structure can be expressed, in the simplest way, by a qualitative or numerical indicator of the global condition level which determines the loss of performance of the considered material, building part or the whole building under its climatic environment over time. Hygrothermal phenomena are responsible for a substantial part of degradation processes particularly in the cold regions, where water condensation and freezing belong to the main deterioration mechanisms. The load-bearing structures and surfaces are parts of a building where the assessment of the degradation level is most significant. The interface between structure and surface layer is another important point because if the adhesion of both layers is compromised, whole parts of surface layer can be detached. Computer simulation is a powerful tool for an assessment of the degradation level of a particular material or structure. However, the quality of input data presents a critical factor for the achievement of reliable results. Therefore, in any analysis of the environmental impact on degradation of building envelopes computational simulations and experimental measurements are supposed to be done together.
The symposium brings together mathematicians active in numerical analysis and applied mathematics on one side, and experimental physicists and materials engineers working in the field of hygrothermal analysis and degradation of materials on the other. The main topics include but are not limited to:
  • Characterization of environmental impact on buildings
  • Computational modeling of hygrothermal processes in building envelopes
  • Determination of input parameters for computational analyses
  • Experimental investigation of hygrothermal processes 
  • Computer-aided service life estimates

Networking and computation is no longer considered as separate disciplines developed in isolation. With the advent of distributed applications, internet of things, fog/cloud computing and virtualization, computing and networking are ever increasingly inter-tangled. Due to large scale deployment of dynamic applications and advent of network as a service based on network function virtualization and software defined networking, elasticity and automation have emerged as a necessary enabling technology for system stability and scalability. This symposium is devoted to computational networking and in particular automation algorithms, experiences and tools. 
The topics include:
  • Software defined networking: SDN, SDX, SDR, SDS, SDNS
  • Distributed storage systems

  • Federated ecosystems
  • Information centric neworking: ICN, NDN, CCN
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and 5G
  • Service elasticity and automation
9) Title: Amorphous to Crystalline Structures in Computational Science

Organizer: Silviu Polosan, PhD (Chair), NIMP Bucharest, Romania



Computational Science is one of the most useful theoretical approaches in the field of organic and organometallic materials for Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) and Organic Photovoltaics (OPV). Generally, the computational properties of those materials are focused on the single molecule to determine the stability, energy states and vibrational properties. However, in experimental devices, the active layers consist of thin films with more or less amorphous structure which significantly influences the charge transport in the sandwiches functional structures. The key point is to determine by Computational Science the charge transport properties for complex crystalline structures which are formed as a result of the ππ stacking between molecules. 
  1. Electronic properties of dispersed molecules in conducting polymers
  2. Charge transport in π®π stacked molecules.
  3. Evaluation of photovoltaic parameters in amorphous and partial crystalline active thin films.

12) Title: Diagnostics of Health through Prism of Physical Activity Prevention

Organizer: Assoc. Prof. Dr. Elena Bendíková, PhD., MatejBel University, Faculty of Arts, Department of physical Education and Sport, Tajovského 40, 974 01 BanskáBystrica, Slovak Republic, EU



One of priority tasks, which every person has in a life, is a care for his/ her health. Unlike the past, an emphasis is now increasingly on a personal responsibility for one's own health. While in a past, the health has been determined predominantly by an influence of biological patterns, it is now more and more clearly conditioned by social factors. For the last two decades, we have witnessed an increase in civilization diseases, both in children and adult populations, where early and proper diagnostics with appropriately selected physical activity can be starting point and prevention of the listed situation.
