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!

11–14 June 2023 ISABC 2023

Ioannina, Greece

The 16th International Symposium on Applied Bioinorganic Chemistry (16-ISABC) will be held in Ioannina, Greece, from 11th to 14th June 2023, at the Karolos Papoulias Conference Center at the University of Ioannina. ISABC 2023 is being run under the auspices of the Epirus region, the Municipality of Ioannina, the University of Ioannina, and the European Chemical Society and Association of Greek Chemists. The scientific program will include round table discussions that will be organized by the Hellenic Society of Medicinal Chemistry and the Hellenic Society for Biomaterials. This is the 16th Symposium of the series and it will cover all branches of modern applied bioinorganic chemistry. The organizers are committed to putting together an outstanding Symposium and are estimating that more than 400 Greek and international scientists will take part, while the number of international renowned speakers will exceed 75. The scientific program sessions will include: Metals in Medicine and Biology Metallomics; Metalloprotein Structures; Metal Complexes; Interaction with RNA, DNA or Proteins; Bioinorganic Biomaterials; Biomimetic and Bioinspired Bioinorganic Chemistry and Energy Conversion; Metal Toxicology and Metals in the Environment; and Biophysical, Biochemical and Spectroscopic Methods in Bioinorganic  Chemistry. The 16th ISABC will be a unique opportunity for scientists from around the globe to meet and exchange knowledge, share thoughts, opinions, and experience.

5–7 July 2023 4th International Symposium on Negative Thermal Expansion and Related Materials (ISNTE-4)

Padua, Italy

The 4th International Symposium on Negative Thermal Expansion and Related Materials (ISNTE-4) is the fourth in a series of International Symposia which aim to bring together researchers from around the world interested in controlling and exploiting the properties of thermoresponsive materials.

The three previous editions were held in Beijing (2015), Tokyo (2017) and Edinburgh (2019). After postponing the event for two years due to the Covid pandemic, we are pleased to announce that the fourth edition of this event will take place in Padua from 5th to 7th July 2023, with an opening reception for delegates on Tuesday 4th July.

Conference topics cover all aspects of negative thermal expansion (NTE) and of the control of thermal expansion, such as

  • NTE phenomena of phonon, electronic and magnetic origin;
  • NTE materials (oxides, fluorides, metal organic frameworks, intermetallics, organic molecular materials, polymers, meta materials, etc.);
  • different strategies for controlling the thermal expansion of materials and related applications;
  • more in general, thermoresponsive materials.

We believe that face-to-face events greatly contribute to share knowledge and strengthen collaborations, so this conference is meant to be on-site. The scientific contributions will be organized in oral and poster presentations. Participants will have the possibility to meet informally during conference breaks and social events.

23–27 October 2023 4th International Conference on Materials Science & Nanotechnology

Valencia, Spain

We are pleased to announce that the 4th edition of the Future Materials conference is scheduled to occur in Valencia from Oct 23 to Oct 27 2023, and it will provide an international platform for disseminating advances in the research and development of Future Materials.

The Future Materials 2023 Symposiums will feature talks on:

  1. Future Biomaterials—Biomedical, Medicine, and Other Applications.
  2. Materials for Energy and Sustainability.
  3. Materials for Electronics, Optics, and Photons.
  4. Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials.

The Future Materials 2023 program will cover different applications in new materials and research directions, nanotechnology-driven solutions in materials engineering, commercialization opportunities and challenges, and other important interdisciplinary topics. The previous editions were scheduled in Rome and Lisbon and were attended by experts from both industry and academia, including Noble laureates and C-level executives.

We invite researchers and industry professionals working in various aspects of Materials Science and Nanotechnology to participate and contribute to advancing materials research and development.
