The 27th International Workshop on Optical Wave & Waveguide Theory and Numerical Modelling will be held in Málaga (Spain), on Friday, May 10, and Saturday, May 11, 2019.

The yearly OWTNM workshop has, since 1992, provided a forum for lively debates, intended to bring forward new ideas in the field of theoretical and computational photonics. Basic physics and novel applications, artificially structured materials and new devices, elegant mathematical techniques and efficient numerical methods to tackle the Maxwell equations form the constantly evolving subjects. These are discussed in a traditionally open and relaxed atmosphere.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Passive and active waveguide devices.
  • Optical micro-resonators.
  • Photonic crystals.
  • Photonic nanostructures and metamaterials.
  • Plasmonics.
  • Optoelectronic devices.
  • Guided wave sensors.
  • Multiphysics effects.
  • Optimization, Packaging and Integration.
  • Advances in analytical, numerical, and computational methods.
