WASHINGTON (June 3, 2014) – The National Science Foundation-CBMS Regional Conference will take place at Howard University June 10-15, in the School of Business auditorium.

The conference, “Mathematical Foundations on Transformation Optics,” will cover topics concerning both the theoretical basis for transformation optics designs, such as cloaks, field rotators and electromagnetic wormholes, and some of the issues that arise from trying to physically realize them.

Guest speakers include: Ulf Leonhardt of Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel; Allan Greenleaf, University of Rochester; Ting Zhou, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; Daniel Onofrei, University of Houston; and Alexander Kildishev, Purdue University.
