SyMat participated to the EuCAP 2022 conference in Madrid, Spain.

Convened Sessions

We organized two convened sessions.

On Monday 28 March the six-paper Session “Theory and Modeling of Higher Symmetries” was organized by Prof. Guido Valerio (Sorbonne University, France) and Prof. Raúl Rodríguez-Berral (University of Seville, Spain) and chaired by Prof. Guido Valerio and Prof. Francisco Mesa (University of Seville, Spain).

On Friday 1 April the ten-paper Session “Applications of artificial materials with higher symmetries” was organized and chaired by Prof. Enrica Martini (University of Siena, Italy) and Prof. Marko Bosiljevac (University of Zagreb, Croatia).

The papers submitted and presented at the sessions are available in the reserved area of the SyMat website.
