Welcome from the Conference Chair

Dear Colleagues,

This is our first international conference on Symmetry, supported by the MDPI journal Symmetry. It will be held in Barcelona, Spain, 16–18 October 2017.

We welcome scholars, engineers, students and enterprises to join this big event, and kindly ask you to block the date in your agenda. As symmetry is a fundamental phenomenon in nature and science, the event aims to bring it into focus and promote cutting edge knowledge and ideas of symmetry in a variety of subjects ranging from Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Computer Science, to Biology.

Registration is open from now on. A first draft agenda and further updates will be sent out over the next weeks and months.

For organizational questions and sponsorship opportunities, please direct your questions to the Secretariat and for content question to Prof. Sergei D. Odintsov.

We look forward to seeing you in Barcelona, Spain, in October 2017.

Best regards

Sergei D. Odintsov
On behalf of the Organization Committee

Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia and is Spain's second largest city, with a population of over one and half million people (over five million in the whole province).

This city, located on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, has a rich and diverse history, with its roots dating back to Roman times when it was a settlement called ‘Barcino’.

In 1992, Barcelona gained international recognition by hosting the Olympic games which brought about a massive upturn in its tourism industry.

This had the effect of changing the city in ways that are still felt today, with neighborhoods that were renovated (and in some cases, leveled), updates to the public transportation system, and an intense focus on modern design, that permeates all aspects of life in Barcelona, from public buildings to something as simple as a park bench or an event poster.

For visitors, this has translated into the very modern, yet incredibly old city you see now in the 21st century, where new elements work to both preserve and celebrate both the city’s heritage and origins.

Barcelona is similar to other large cosmopolitan European cities with plenty of outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums, and churches. The city is also very walkable, with an extensive and reliable Metro system for more far-flung destinations. The core center of town, focused around the Ciutat Vella ("Old City"), provides many opportunities for enjoyment for those looking to experience the life of Barcelona, while the beaches the city were built to provide locations for sun and relaxation during the long periods of agreeably warm weather.

Travel and Accommodation

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. The city combines modern and historic architecture in a unique way.
