The Summer School « Metagenierie: Principles and engineering applications of acoustic metamaterials » will take place from 2nd to 7th July 2017 in La Vieille Perrotine, Ile d’Oleron, CAES village of CNRS.
The main objective of this thematic school is to provide comprehensive training for PhD students, post-docs, industrialists and engineers on the topic of metamaterials. There is therefore a real opportunity to offer joint training with the objective of facilitating communication between the industrial and the academic world. The training will be carried out jointly by researchers from French and foreign laboratories, and by industrialists, allowing to exchange and compare points of view.
Training on acoustic metamaterials will be offered in areas of recognized applications (underwater acoustics, telecom components, audible acoustics), but particular attention will be paid to emerging themes such as metamaterials for acoustic, mechanical and seismic waves.
The summer school will feature introductory courses and will alternate training courses allowing the learning of basic concepts and research courses in the fields cited above. Industrial seminars will complement the training by illustrating the technological challenges and the societal stakes for each field of application. Finally, science cafes will allow informal discussions between stakeholders and participants.
