The conference will cover but not be limited to the following general and related themes:
- Frontiers of biomedicine in SARS-CoV-2;
- RNA processing and human diseases;
- Extracellular vesicles for biomarker discovery;
- Medicinally active plants and phytochemicals;
- Molecular mechanisms of neurodegeneration;
- Immune system, tumor immunology, and autoimmune disease;
- Obesity and metabolic diseases;
- Nutraceuticals as adjuvant therapeutics;
- Musculoskeletal tissue regeneration;
- Wound healing;
- Peptide-based piezoelectric materials;
- Nanomedicine, combination cancer therapy, and immunotherapy.
All submitted abstracts will be evaluated by the conference peer review committee. Upon acceptance, authors will contribute an extended abstract for the conference proceedings and a slide presentation of their work. The authors with outstanding contributions will be invited to submit full manuscripts for potential publication in Biomedicines (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/biomedicines).
Abstract Submission: 5 January 2023;
Acceptance Notification: 16 January 2023;
Full Paper Submission: 6 February 2023;
Final Paper Notification: 17 February 2023.
The Scientific Committee looks forward to receiving contributions in response to this call and will be happy to provide any further information to interested parties. Any questions may be addressed to the conference secretariat ([email protected]).
We thank you in advance for attending this conference, and we look forward to a stimulating exchange.

5–19 May 2023 The 4th International Online Conference on Nanomaterials (IOCN 2023)
It is our pleasure to invite you to join the 4th International Online Conference on Nanomaterials (IOCN 2023) after the prodigious success of the previous three annual online conferences. IOCN 2023 will be hosted online by: https://iocn2023.sciforum.net/
IOCN 2023 is dedicated to providing a forum for exchanging the latest research results and sharing advanced research methods on nanomaterials. Nanomaterials are materials with typical-size features in the lower nanometer size range and characteristic mesoscopic properties—for example, quantum size effects. These properties make them attractive objects of fundamental research and potential new applications. Many of the things we have been using for a long time contain nanosized components, though we are frequently not aware of them. For instance, mimicking nature’s nanotech is becoming a big business. Many research groups around the world have turned to geckos and mussels in order to prepare adhesives that bind to dry and wet surfaces alike. Numerous technologies in the modern world rely on nanostructures, often inspired by evolution in the natural world. However, there is much unexploited potential left to explore.
The scope of IOCN 2023 on Nanomaterials is to cover the whole breadth of nanomaterials research and to provide a forum for presenting and discussing new results. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Synthesis, Characterization, and Properties of Nanomaterials (Session A);
- Modeling and Simulation of Nanostructures and Nanodevices (Session B);
- Carbon Nanomaterials, Graphene and 2D Materials (Session C);
- Polymer Nanomaterials, Soft Nanomaterials, Nanocoatings/Thin films, and Nanostructured Surfaces (Session D);
- Magnetism and Magnetic Nanomaterials (Session E);
- Nanomedicine and Nanobiotechnology (Session F);
- Nanotechnology for Catalysis, Electrochemistry, Energy, and Environment (Session G);
- Nanophysics, Nanoelectronics, Nanophotonics, Nanoplasmonics and Nanosensing (Session H);
- Poster (Session I).
Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 27 January 2023 at https://iocn2023.sciforum.net/. In case of acceptance, authors will be asked to submit their manuscript (short proceedings paper, 3–6 pages) before 17 March 2023. Optionally, authors of accepted abstracts will be able to submit a poster, a slideshow presentation (in PDF) and/or a short video presentation (max. 3–5 minutes) as supporting material for the paper.
The accepted proceedings papers will probably be published as one dedicated volume in MDPI’s Materials Proceedings journal (ISSN: 2673-4605). Publication of proceedings papers are free of charge.
The submission to Nanomaterials is independent of the conference proceedings and will follow the usual process of the journal, including peer-review, APC, etc. All participants of IOCN 2023 are welcome to submit an extended full paper to a conference Special Issue of the journal Nanomaterials with a 20% discount on the Article Processing Charges.
We are pleased to announce the availability of awards for researchers who plan to attend the IOCN 2023 conference. Applications and nominations will be assessed by the Scientific Committee. Winners will be announced online after the conference.
Best Paper Award
As a sponsor, Nanomaterials would like to award the best paper as elected by the conference committee. The award will consist of 500 Swiss Francs. We look forward to posting your contributions.
Best Presentation Award
As a sponsor, Nanomaterials would like to grant an award (300 Swiss Francs) for the best presentation files presented at the conference. This prize is awarded by a jury to the best presentation files presented at the conference.
The 4th International Online Conference on Nanomaterials is organized and sponsored by MDPI, an open access publisher based in Switzerland. We hope you will be able to join this exciting event and support us in making it a success.
We look forward to receiving your research papers and welcoming you to this edition of the e-conference.
Please contact us if you have any questions ([email protected]).

21–23 June 2023 Symmetry 2023—The 4th International Conference on Symmetry
We are delighted to announce that “Symmetry 2023—The 4th International Conference on Symmetry” will be back in person in 2023. The event is supported by MDPI’s open access journal Symmetry and will be held on 21–23 June 2023 in Barcelona, Spain.
As expressed by Hermann Weyl, who was responsible for important progress in the field of symmetry in math and physics: “Symmetry is a fundamental phenomenon in nature and all sciences”. Additionally, paraphrasing Frank Wilczek, “powerful symmetry principles have guided physicists in their quest for nature's fundamental laws”. Although one should add, at the same time, that many of the most interesting situations happen to occur when some fundamental symmetry principle is broken. It thus seems as if nature abhors perfect symmetry.
It is this interplay between symmetry and its breakdown, in the many different domains and situations where they appear, which we want to address in the 4th Symmetry Conference in Barcelona. Specifically, we will foster interaction between scholars working in different fields of science.
We welcome scholars, engineers, students, and non-academic colleagues to join Symmetry 2023, and we kindly ask you to save the date. We aim to make this event a forum for discussion, knowledge exchange, and fruitful interactions among stakeholders working in various symmetry-related fields: Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Engineering Science. Both oral and poster contributions are welcome.
We are pleased to announce the availability of awards for postdocs, PhD students, and researchers conducting research in the field of symmetry and who plan to attend Symmetry 2023.
Best Oral Presentation (EUR 500)
Selected by the Scientific Committee after evaluation of all selected talks presented during the conference.
Best Poster (EUR 300)
Selected by the Scientific Committee after evaluation of all posters presented during the conference.
Both awards are sponsored by MDPI's open access journal Symmetry.
We are very enthusiastic about this 4th Symmetry Conference and are relying on you to make it a successful event.
We look forward to meeting you in Barcelona!
