Within the framework of the UNESCO activities for 2015 – The International Year of Light, you are cordially invited to attend and submit memories to the international scientific and theological Conference FIAT LUX (Let there be light), Roma (Italy), from 3-5 June 2015.

In the common language light means knowledge: “I had a lightning”! In nature, light has a larger dimension, regrouping together three main functionalities: light means energy, light means information, light means also time rhythm. All of them are somehow different expressions of “knowledge”: in fact, getting information and communicate means to know the surrounding, acquire energy from such knowledge and start associated actions. Physics and metaphysics have always analysed the surrounding nature from points of view which might be different but never opposite. FIAT LUX wants to be the place where scientists, philosophers and theologians will get together to discuss on the LIGHT, trying to find similar languages and common understanding.

Deadline for abstract submission is 15 March 2015.
