Feature papers represent the most advanced research with significant potential for high impact in the field. A Feature Paper should be a substantial original Article that involves several techniques or approaches, provides an outlook for future research directions and describes possible research applications.
Feature papers are submitted upon individual invitation or recommendation by the scientific editors and must receive positive feedback from the reviewers.
Editor’s Choice articles are based on recommendations by the scientific editors of MDPI journals from around the world. Editors select a small number of articles recently published in the journal that they believe will be particularly interesting to readers, or important in the respective research area. The aim is to provide a snapshot of some of the most exciting work published in the various research areas of the journal.
We are delighted to announce that the 4th International Conference on Symmetry (Symmetry 2023) will be back in person in 2023. The event is supported by MDPI’s open access journal Symmetry (ISSN: 2073-8994) and will be held from 21 to 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, to quote 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 at 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, such as 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, Ph.D. students, and researchers conducting research in the field of symmetry and who plan to attend Symmetry 2023.
Best Oral Presentation (award: EUR 500)
Selected by the Scientific Committee after evaluation of all selected talks presented during the conference.
Best Poster (award: 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.
The following MDPI journals will be represented:
We are very enthusiastic about this 4th Symmetry Conference; we hope that together we can help make it a successful event.
We look forward to meeting you in Barcelona.
