Expression of Interest to Host the Symmetry Conference
The Symmetry Conference Selection Committee seeks Expressions of Interest (EoI) from universities/institutions/individual scholars to host an edition of the Symmetry Conference. There is no restriction in the geographic areas considered.
The Symmetry Conference
Symmetry Conference is a scientific conference series dedicated to bringing together scientists and leaders from different areas to discuss important recent developments and ideas of symmetry in a variety of subjects ranging from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, to Biology.
The First Symmetry conference was held in 2017 in Barcelona, Spain. You can find a brief summary of the first edition here.
The Second Symmetry conference will be held in Benasque, Spain, in September 2019.
Please note that the follow-on editions will not be restrained to the topics discussed in previous editions and, therefore, new and different topics within the symmetry field are sought.
The Symmetry Conference is organized annually. The Symmetry Conference Selection Committee is accepting EoIs to organize editions from 2020 onwards.
Candidate institutions must have the ability to host and organize at least a three-day conference with 150–200 participants. This includes appropriate access to conference facilities, lodging, and transportation, as well as the ability to manage a range of supporting services (food services, internet services, and conference social events, etc.).
The candidate institutions and their local arrangements committee must have the means to support the costs of producing the conference through attendee registration, sponsoring, advertising and independent fundraising.
When necessary, and based on the input provided by the local host, MDPI staff will provide administrative support and help to manage the conference website on Sciforum. MDPI staff will also help to edit the abstracts, prepare the conference book, help to design the logos and banners for the conference website, flyers, posters, roll-ups, lanyards, conference bags, etc. following the style of previous Entropy edition.
MDPI will promote the conference edition on all relevant MDPI journals and any other relevant communication channels.
