21–23 June 2023 Symmetry 2023—The 4th International Conference on Symmetry

Barcelona, Spain

Dear Colleagues,

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!

The meeting will be hosted online at from 14 to 28 July 2023.

Topics for IECT2023 are organized into six sessions:

S1. Novel plant, animal, insect and microbial toxins.
S2. Mechanism of action and/or pathophysiology of toxins.
S3. Use of toxins as tools for research, drug discovery, and therapeutics.
S4. Impact of toxins on public health.
S5. Impact of toxins on agriculture.
S6. Evolution of toxins.

Within each topic of particular interest will be those at the interface of toxicology and toxinology.

IECT2023 offers you the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without any concerns of expenditures regarding travel—all you need is your computer and access to the Internet. We would like to invite you to “attend” this conference by presenting your latest work. There is no registration fee. Abstracts (in English) should be submitted online before 7 April 2023.
