“Exploiting Symmetries in Artificial Materials for Antenna Applications”

Paris, France, September 25-28 2023

Coordinators: Guido Valerio (Sorbonne Université, France), Oscar Quevedo-Teruel (KTH, Sweden), Enrica Martini (University of Siena, Italy).

A training event is organized by the COST Action SyMat and the European School of Antennas (ESoA) in hybrid format. The course is organized by Sorbonne Université, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the University of Siena and is held at Sorbonne University in Paris, France.

Subjects and Trainers

The course will present properties and applications of artificial electromagnetic materials (metamaterials) with special mention of metamaterials exhibiting special symmetries and their applications to antennas and microwave devices:

  • the theory of glide- and twist-symmetric metamaterials and metasurfaces,
  • spatio-temporal symmetries, topology in electromagnetics and applications,
  • numerical methods and equivalent circuits for the analysis of these materials,
  • the design of lens antennas, of EBG materials, microwave filters and circuits,
  • applications to 5G/6G and satellite communications, as well as to automotive and aerospace applications.

The list of trainers includes Guido Valerio (Sorbonne Université), Oscar Quevedo-Teruel (KTH), Enrica Martini (University of Siena, on-line), Astrid Algaba Brazález (Ericsson, on-line), Andrea Alù (The City University of New York, on-line), Simon Horsely (University of Exeter), Francisco Mesa (University of Seville), Eva Rajo-Iglesias (University Carlos III Madrid).

Program of the school

Here is a booklet of the school with a tentative program of the four days and with practical information.


The school will take place on September 25th-28th at Sorbonne Université, 4 place Jussieu, 75005 Paris, in the heart of the university neighbourhood in the Latin district, at walking distance from Notre Dame cathedral, the Botanical Garden, the Marais, the Louvre.
