ECU 2023 is closed. Thank you for your participation.

The ECU 2023 award winners are still under evaluation, we will announce it as soon as possible.

The accepted papers will be published as one dedicated volume in the MDPI journal Physical Sciences Forum (ISSN: 2673-9984) after the conference.

All participants of ECU 2023 are also welcomed to submit the extended work to the Universe (Impact Factor 2.813) conference Special Issue with a 20% discount on the article processing charge.

Welcome from the Chair

Dear Colleagues,
After a very successful first edition of the Electronic Conference on Universe (https://ecu2021.sciforum.net/), it is my honour to invite you to join the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Universe (ECU 2023), from 16 February to 2 March 2023, which will enable you to share and discuss your most recent findings with the worldwide community of scientists and researchers in these fields.

At this point of restricted travel and personal contact, it is a pleasure to still be able to collaborate electronically via this online venue. This internet conference is designed to allow you to present your research to colleagues and to interact as fully as possible with all those involved in it. I also hope you will meet old friends and make new ones here. There will be many fascinating papers to spark everyone’s interest.

I hope this conference will bring together major contributions at the forefront of research in the fields of gravitation, cosmology, field theory, high energy physics, quantum mechanics, astrophysics and astronomy, etc. and I am confident that yours will be among them. Universe 2023 will make your presentation accessible to hundreds of researchers worldwide, with active engagement of the audience in question and answer sessions and discussion groups that will take place online.

Submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the conference committee. The authors of accepted contributions will be invited to produce an extended abstract for the conference proceedings along with a slide presentation of their work. Following the conference, outstanding contributions will be invited to be submitted for publication in the journal Universe.

The conference has been divided into nine themes (S1-S9). Please submit your articles as soon as possible, indicating which theme you think best fits your submission.

S1: Gravitation and Cosmology
S2: Field Theory
S3: High Energy Nuclear and Particle Physics
S4: Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Gravity
S5: Space and Planetary Sciences
S6: Galaxies and Clusters
S7: Compact Objects
S8: Stellar and Solar Physics
S9: Women Scientists in Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology

Thank you for your kind attention. We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting meeting online.

Best regards,
Prof. Dr. Lorenzo Iorio

Presentation Slides

Authors are encouraged to prepare a presentation using PowerPoint or similar software, which will be made available online alongside the manuscript. Slides can be prepared in the same way as for any traditional conference. They should be converted to a PDF format before submission.

Video Presentations

Authors are also encouraged to submit video presentations. This is a unique way of presenting your paper and discussing it with peers from all over the world. Videos should be no longer than 3-5 minutes and should be uploaded in one of the following formats: .mp4 / .webm / .ogg (max size: 250Mb). Videos should be submitted with the full manuscript before 10 January 2023.

However, they will not be added to the proceedings of the conference. For detailed instructions on how to submit a poster, please contact us at ecu2023@mdpi.com.

Potential Conflicts of Interest

All authors must disclose all relationships or interests that could inappropriately influence or bias their work. This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. If no conflicts exist, please state "The authors declare no conflict of interest." Financial support for the study must be fully disclosed under the "Acknowledgments" section.

Copyright

MDPI, the publisher of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means that you can submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to the publisher with ease (if required).

Event Awards

To acknowledge the support of the conference esteemed authors and recognize their outstanding scientific accomplishments, the best papers and best speakers will be selected by the members of the scientific committee. Each Award will consist of 500 Swiss Francs and a free featured paper. We look forward to posting your contributions.
