VIII Annual Symposium SRUK/CERU

19 Jun - 20 Jun


Online Event



The underlying theme for this symposium will be the relationship between science and magic. With the theme “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic“, SRUK/CERU aims to reflect how science has evolved in a way that was very difficult to imagine in a not so distant past. The program will include well-known international and Spanish researchers and will cover a variety of topics where research plays a key role. As in previous symposia, there will also be a space for SRUK/CERU members to present their research.

This edition will be the first time the SRUK/CERU Symposium goes virtual, and the organising committee is aware of how tired everyone is feeling about staring at our screens during virtual meetings. For this reason, SRUK/CERU is committed to making this event as engaging as possible. All the sessions will be highly interactive with debates, roundtables, and workshops – and well-deserved breaks! In addition, they will have social and networking virtual activities.
