Welcome from the Chairs

Dear Colleagues,

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. The aim is to make this event a forum for discussion, knowledge exchange, and fruitful interactions among stakeholders working in the different symmetry-related fields: Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Engineering Science. Both oral and poster contributions are welcome.

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!

Kind regards,

Herbert Weigel is Professor of Theoretical Physics at Stellenbosch University (South Africa).He received his PhD at Siegen University (Germany) under the supervision of Prof. G. Holzwarth. Thereafter he spent several years as postdoc in Syracuse (New York), Orsay (France) and Tubingen (Germany). In Tubingen he also gained his 'Habilitation' (2nd PhD). He was then awarded a Heisenberg fellowship by the German Science Foundation (DFG) for a period of five years which he spent as researcher at the MIT, Cambridge (Massachusetts) and Tubingen. He became an Extra-curricular Professor at Siegen University before he moved to Stellenbosch as Associate Professor. He was promoted to Full Professor in 2013. Prof. Weigel's research interests are centered around non-linear phenomena in (quantum) field theory. Most notably these are the so-called soliton solutions. They have a particle interpretation and can, for example, be used to model aspects of quantum-chromo-dynamics as low energy scales. He particularly investigated the relevance of strange degrees of freedom for baryons. More recently he also focused on the quantum effects for solitons (or soliton-like structures). Not only yields that study insight in the famous Casimir effect; it also shows that classically unstable field configurations can be stabilized quantum mechanically. In other cases these quantum effects may cause classically stable configurations to fade away. Prof. Weigel has (co)authored more than one hundred research publications, about half a dozen review articles and two monographs on his research projects.

Venue, Travel and Accommodation

Venue

Barcelona

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.

Located on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, this city has a rich and diverse history, with its roots dating back to Roman times. The fruitful medieval period established Barcelona's position as the economic and political centre of the Western Mediterranean. The city's Gothic Quarter bears witness to the splendour enjoyed by the city from the 13th to the 15th centuries.

The 20th century ushered in widespread urban renewal throughout Barcelona city, culminating in its landmark Eixample district, which showcases some of Barcelona's most distinctive Catalan art-nouveau, or modernista, buildings. The Catalan Antoni Gaudí, one of the most eminent architects, designed buildings such as La Pedrera, the Casa Batlló and the Sagrada Família church, which have become world-famous landmarks.

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