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!

22–24 November 2023 Single-Molecule Sensors and NanoSystems International Conference—S3IC 2023

Barcelona, Spain

Sensor systems exhibit extraordinary sensitivity for detecting physical, chemical, and biological entities at the micro/nanoscale. The detection and analysis of molecules on miniature devices that have many possible applications in health, environment, analysis, and security is particularly exciting. A new class of label-free micro and nanosensors is starting to emerge allowing us to observe dynamic processes at the single molecule level directly, with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolution and without significantly affecting the natural and functional movements of the molecules. Micro- and nanosensors by virtue of their small interaction length probe molecules over a dynamic range often inaccessible by other techniques. Their small size enables an exceedingly high sensitivity, and the application of quantum optical measurement techniques can allow us to approach or surpass classical limits of detection. Advances in optical and electrical measurement methodology, laser interferometry, quantum optics, micro/nanofluidics, control of molecules and reactions at the nanoscale, DNA origami/synthetic molecular machines, and in vivo and wearable sensing materials all contribute to the rapid progress of the field of Single-Molecule Sensors and nanoSystems. It is this convergence of previously often disparate fields that is accelerating the advancements in micro and nano-sensing.

This conference will bring together researchers in the rapidly advancing field of Single-Molecule Sensors and nanoSystems. The conference focusses on the most recent advances in micro and nano-sensing techniques that have either demonstrated single-molecule detection or that claim single-molecule detection capability on sensor chips in the longer term.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Single-Molecule Spectroscopy, Imaging, and Forces.
  • Micro/Nanofluidics/Chemical control at the Nanoscale.
  • Molecular Machines, Synthetic Biology, and DNA Origami.
  • Single-Molecule Sensors and Sequencers.
  • Molecular Electronics.
  • From Quantum Sensing to Quantum Biology.

16–19 July 2024 6th International Conference on Application of Optics and Photonics (AOP 2024)

Aveiro, Portugal

The Portuguese Society for Optics and Photonics is organizing the VI International Conference on Applications of Optics and Photonics, AOP2024, to be held in Aveiro, Portugal, July 16 to 19, 2024.

In line with the success of SPOF’s previous conferences—AOP2011 in Braga (, AOP2014 in Aveiro (, AOP2017 at the University of Algarve in Faro (, AOP2019 at the University of Lisbon in Portugal’s capital (, and AOP2021 at the UNESCO World Heritage historical town of Guimarães in the north of Portugal (—our 6th meeting will further reinforce the international prestige of the AOP conference and will be a reference meeting in Optics and Photonics in 2024.

In the open friendly environment characteristic of SPOF’s conferences, this forum will be an excellent opportunity to further foster the establishment of the widest range of cooperation projects and relationships with colleagues and institutions from Portugal and from all around the world. Open to contributions in all topics of optics and photonics and application fields, with this conference, we expect to review the state of the art in these subjects and to foresee and discuss the future of research in optics and photonics. A good number of plenary and key lectures by world-renowned researchers in all fields of optics and photonics will mark a varied and exciting scientific program. We expect to have presentations of research labs and industries to promote and facilitate the setup of future new collaborations. A special space will be reserved for photonics spinoffs and young companies and entrepreneurs. As is tradition in our AOP conferences, an enjoyable social program will be organized, further contributing to the setup and cementing of long-lasting friendships and cooperation. Peer-reviewed accepted papers will be published in an indexed proceedings book and in Special Editions or Sections of ISI/SCI journals in the fields of optics and photonics.
