21–23 June 2023 Symmetry 2023—The 4th International Conference on Symmetry
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!

7–10 June 2023 10th International Workshop on Applied Probability
IWAP2023 aims to bring together researchers and scientists working in the field of applied probability, sharing equally between methodology, also involving mathematics and statistics, and applications in diverse fields, such as physics, computer science, economics, engineering, biology, chemistry, and social and health sciences. In addition to research presentations, there will be ample networking opportunities throughout the event.
13–16 June 2023 Quantum Information and Probability: from Foundations to Engineering (QIP23)
An international conference devoted to quantum foundations, especially information and probability, including foundational questions of quantum engineering, at Linnaeus University in Växjö. The conference is supported by The Mathemathical Institute at Linnaeus University.
The conference will be based on the talks of invited speakers (30 min + 5 min questions) and contributed talks (20 min + 5 min questions). For contributed talks, the acceptance decision will be done based on the abstract, so please start with registration (without paying the fee) and abstract submission. After the positive reply, one goes back to the registration form and pays the org. fee.
For graduate and postgraduate students, a poster-presentation is preferable, because a poster would get higher visibility than a talk in one of a few parallel sessions. The journal Entropy supports the awards for the two best posters with 350 and 150 Swiss francs respectively.
The conference is arranged by International Centre for Mathematical Modelling in physics, engineering and cognitive sciences (ICMM). Quantum information revolution has big foundational impact. We invite all kinds of contributions devoted to quantum foundations, especially (but not exclusively) with coupling to quantum information, probability, and measurement theory.

With members from around the world focused on learning about Sustainable Energy, this is the best opportunity to reach the largest assemblage of participants from various communities, conduct demonstrations, distribute information, meet with professionals and receive recognition at this 3-day event.
18–19 July 2023 CNS*2023 Workshop on Methods of Information Theory in Computational Neuroscience
Methods originally developed in Information Theory have found wide applicability in computational neuroscience. Beyond these original methods there is a need to develop novel tools and approaches that are driven by problems arising in neuroscience.
A number of researchers in computational/systems neuroscience and in information/communication theory are investigating problems of information representation and processing. While the goals are often the same, these researchers bring different perspectives and points of view to a common set of neuroscience problems. Often they participate in different fora and their interaction is limited.
The goal of the workshop is to bring some of these researchers together to discuss challenges posed by neuroscience and to exchange ideas and present their latest work.
The workshop is targeted towards computational and systems neuroscientists with interest in methods of information theory as well as information/communication theorists with interest in neuroscience.

25–30 October 2023 Random Matrices and Integrability in Complex and Quantum Systems
Yad Hashmona, Isreal
More than nine decades after random matrices surfaced in mathematical statistics and seven decades after they debuted in nuclear physics, “the magical world of random matrices” (Dyson) continues to attract both mathematicians and physicists; new mathematical structures and results are being brought in, and new unthinkable connections between seemingly remote fields of knowledge are being discovered.
The purpose of the workshop is to convene leading researchers from both the mathematics- and physics-oriented parts of the multifaceted random-matrix theory community to discuss the latest developments in the field and identify new challenging problems and directions of research.
The workshop topics include (but are not restricted to):
- Random spectra and determinantal point processes.
- Log-correlated fields and multiplicative chaos.
- Non-Hermitian RMT and dissipative quantum chaos.
- RMT in many-body quantum chaos and SYK models.
- High-dimensional landscapes and deep learning.
