The focus of this topical meeting is to explore the physics and applications of classical and quantum waves confined  in complex aperiodic environments. 


• Complex electromagnetic media
• Optics of correlated random structures
• Aperiodic metamaterials
• Mathematics of complex order
• Topological and singular media with complex order
• Wave localization and optical transport in complex systems
• Photonics of amorphous systems
• Hyperuniform optical media
• Fractional transport in complex optical media
• Emerging concepts in complex optics
