Venue: Wotton House, 4* Country Estate Hotel, Guildford Rd, Wotton, Dorking RH5 6HS

Wotton House is a remote country estate. Please check your travel time to the venue before deciding on your arrival/departure times.

It can be accessed by the M25, the M3 South, the A24 East, and the A3 from London. Parking is extensive and free for guests of the hotel, conference venue and leisure club.

The closest train station, Dorking Station, is just 4 miles or a 15 minute drive from the hotel. Direct links and connections from London Waterloo, London Victoria, Reading, and Gatwick Airport are available.


Target attendees: Academics (incl. Early Career Researchers at/beyond post-doc level), postdocs outside the ECR scope, representatives from industry and non-Higher Education research organisations.

Aim of the event: The UK Metamaterials Network Conference 2022 provides a space for the community to come together to widen knowledge horizons beyond subject-specifics to lay the foundation for future collaborations between and across UK academia and industry (e.g., addressing grand challenges, joint projects, research grants, consultancy work etc.).

Its aim is to enhance scientific understanding and relationships across the breadth of the UK metamaterials research landscape. The discussion outcomes will build the foundation of a written document to outline this landscape and the future of metamaterials in the UK, alongside potential White Papers on Metamaterials for NetZero, Space, and Augmented Reality.

Sponsors: The UK Metamaterials Network Conference 2022 is kindly sponsored by EPSRC and Dstl.
