5–7 May 2021 Entropy 2021: The Scientific Tool of the 21st Century

Porto, Portugal

The concept of entropy emerges initially from the scope of physics, but it is now clear that entropy is deeply related to information theory and the process of inference. Today, entropic techniques have found a broad spectrum of applications in all branches of science.

The conference will be organized into six sessions, which reflect the inter-disciplinary nature of entropy and its applications:

  • Statistical Physics
  • Information Theory, Probability and Statistics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Quantum Information and Foundations
  • Complex Systems
  • Entropy in Multidisciplinary Applications

The inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary nature of contributions from both theoretical and applied perspectives are welcome, including papers addressing conceptual and methodological developments, as well as new applications of entropy and information theory.

8–13 August 2021 The 3rd International Conference on Symmetry

Ben-Gurion University Marcus Family Campus, Beer Sheva, Israel

This third edition of the International Conference on Symmetry, supported by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the MDPI journal Symmetry, will be held on the Ben-Gurion University Marcus Family Campus, in Israel, from 8 August to 13 August, 2021. This event, therefore, aims to promote the discussion and exchange of cutting edge knowledge and ideas of symmetry in a variety of subjects ranging from physics, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science, to biology.

Symmetry announces selected third-party conferences. In case you would like to announce your own event on the Symmetry website, please fill out the following form to apply for the announcement of a conference or other academic event (seminar, workshop).

20–21 August 2020 3rd International Conference on Semiconductors, Optoelectronics and Nanostructures (Semiconductor-2020)

Venice, Italy

3rd International Conference on Semiconductors, Optoelectronics and Nanostructures (Semiconductor-2020), which will be held during August 20-21, 2020 in Venice, Italy is now an established event, attracting global participant’s intent on sharing, exchanging and exploring new avenues of Semiconductors, Optoelectronics and Nanostructures and related research and latest developments. The event will have 5-6 world level (Highly cited class) Plenary speakers, established Keynote speakers, active Invited speakers and fresh contributed speakers. In addition, a variety of poster presentations along with workshops and special sessions would be interested in the audience.

5–9 October 2020 5th International Conference on Particle Physics and Astrophysics

Moscow, Russia (Online)

The 5th International Conference on Particle Physics and Astrophysics (ICPPA-2020) will be held in Moscow, Russia, (from the 5th to the 9th of October). The conference is organized by National Research Nuclear University “MEPhI”. The aim of the Conference is to share scientific knowledge, to promote contacts between scientists and to develop new ideas in fundamental research. We will bring together experts and young scientists working in experimental and theoretical areas of nuclear physics, particle physics (including astroparticle physics), and cosmology. Most recent results from the modern experiments in these areas and advanced detector technology development will be presented and discussed.

2–6 November 2020 International Conference on Shapes and Symmetries in Nuclei: from Experiment to Theory (SSNET'20)

Orsay, France

The SSNET 2020 Conference, hosted by the Laboratoire de Physique des 2 Infinis Irène Joliot-Curie (IJCLab) in Orsay, will be held at the Lehmann auditorium, on the Paris-Saclay university campus in Orsay, France, from November 2nd to the 6th, 2020.

As in the previous (and successful!) editions, the conference aims at strengthening the international collaboration between the nuclear structure physicists from France, Europe and other laboratories all around the world. It will allow fruitful discussions on recent experimental and theoretical aspects of nuclear structure related to the manifestation and description of the various shapes and geometrical symmetries of the nucleus as well as other symmetries and symmetry breaking.

26–29 April 2021 XXIX European Colloquium on Heterocyclic Chemistry - ECHC 2021

Rouen, France

The XXIX European Colloquium on Heterocyclic Chemistry will take place in Rouen, France from April 26 to 29, 2021.

The ECHC is an open meeting dealing with all aspects of heterocyclic chemistry with international renown speakers and participants from academia and industry. The aim of the meeting is to present new results, stimulate interactions between academia and industry and create an atmosphere for establishing networks, useful also for young chemists. The 3 following topics will be covered:

  • Synthetic Methodology & Catalysis
  • Chemical Biology & Medicinal chemistry
  • Material Sciences

6–12 June 2021 XXI Geometrical Seminar

Belgrade, Serbia

XXI Geometrical Seminar is organized by the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Belgrade, Serbia, and will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, 6–12 June 2021. This series of scientific meetings started in 1980th as national geometrical seminar of former Yugoslavia, and has grown to the one of leading international conferences in modern geometry and its applications. It attracts participation of scientists not only from the region but also all over the world. Topics include various aspects of differential geometry, topology, Lie groups, mathematical physics, discrete geometry, integrable systems, visualization and other related subjects. The proceedings of all previous meetings have been published by Faculty of Mathematics, Belgrade, and the last five by the journals Filomat and Publications de l'Institut Mathématique. This time, some selected papers will be published in a Special Issue of the MDPI journal Symmetry, after peer review.

14–16 July 2021 The IEEE Workshop on Compexity in Engineering

GGI – Galileo Galilei Institute for Theoretical Physics, Largo Enrico Fermi, 2, 50125 Florence FI, Italy

COMPENG is a series of international workshops founded in 2010 aimed at providing a forum for experts and professionals working on the latest developments in complexity science and its application in an engineering perspective
Previous editions of the workshop were held in Rome, Italy (2010); Aachen, Germany (2012); Barcelona, Spain (2014); Catania, Italy (2016); Florence, Italy (2018).
The IEEE Workshop on Compexity in Engineering COMPENG 2020 is postponed to 2021, tentatively to July 14-16. These dates will be confirmed in early 2021.

3–8 July 2022 17th Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium - BOSS XVII

Namur, Belgium

Due to the extraordinary circumstances that we all found ourselves in surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are genuinely disappointed to announce that we must postpone the 17th Belgian Organic Synthesis Symposium (BOSS XVII), due to take place in Namur from July 5-10, 2020. We made this difficult decision because the health and safety of all of our participants remains our primary concern.

The symposium will take place at the same location on July 3-8, 2022.
