The QUEST-organised Royal Society International Scientific Meeting, "Spatial Transformations: from fundamentals to applications", was held January 26-27 at Chicheley Hall, UK. Topics ranged from cloaking (in opitcs, acoustics and thermodynamics), to antennas, to surfaces waves. Speakers included Prof. Sir John Pendry, Prof. Nader Engheta, Prof. Martin Wegener, Prof. Ulf Leonhardt, and many more. All the talks were extremely interesting, and the accompanying discussions even more so, thanks to both the speakers and the delegates. There were also contributions from delegates in the poster sessions. Full details, including audio recordings of the talks and disussions, are available on the Royal Society's event webpage.
A themed issue of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society A, containing contributions from the speakers at this meeting, will be published later this year.
