Reminder - Call for Abstracts for the 1st Disordered Materials 2019 24. - 26. September 2019, Potsdam, Germany

Don’t miss the dealine: 31. Januar 2019

The 1st Disordered Materials 2019 conference will have a special focus on disordered materials in optics and photonics. It is by now accepted that optical media do not necessarily have to be regular. Quite in contrast, photonic materials with deliberately introduced disorder in their respective geometries and compositions show interesting novel and tuneable unforeseen properties. These aspects shall be showcased at the conference.  Furthermore, contributions related to the Priority Program 1839 (Tailored Disorder - A science- and engineering-based approach to materials design for advanced photonic applications) of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft ( will be included.

We are pleased to announce already the following Speaker:
