Conference Room

Dipartimento di Fisica e Astronomia "E. Majorana"

Via S. Sofia 64, Catania.

We're excited to announce a special workshop in honor of Dr. Marcello Baldo, a distinguished former director of research at INFN Sezione di Catania. Dr. Baldo has had a remarkable scientific journey, contributing significantly to various areas of theoretical physics. His work has touched upon subjects such as low-energy nuclear physics, nuclear magnetic resonance, chaos theory, graphene, nuclear matter superfluidity, and neutron star matter equation of state.

To celebrate his career and remarkable discoveries, a group of colleagues will gather at the Conference Room of the Department of Physics and Astronomy "E. Majorana" in Catania, and explore Dr. Baldo's initial breakthroughs tracing the evolution of the field up to its current cutting-edge developments.
