Complexity and Diversity in Matter, Molecules, Life and Society

Strasbourg, France, 29 November-1 December 2006

The Ist European Young Investigator Awardees Symposium Ist EURYIAS - Complexity and Diversity in Matter, Molecules, Life and Society is the first Symposium that brings together the young scientists representing all research domains of the EURYI Awards: Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Mathematics, Engineering, Life Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences.

The aim of the Symposium is to create conditions for exchange and interaction, between different disciplines and between promising younger researchers and the world’s leading scientists. The overall themes of the Symposium will be: complexity and diversity as a driving force for life and evolution; the evolution of physical and chemical complex dynamic structures and the development of novel systems and technologies in the service of society.

Participants will have the opportunity of meeting across the boundaries of different disciplines and opportunity of finding a common language to discuss scientific items from various perspectives.
