Editorial Info

Euresis Journal is edited and run by an Editorial Board including members of Euresis Scientific Committee. The Editorial Board, with the help of external experts, reviews all manuscripts. In addition, an Advisory Board oversees the development of the journal to ensure its quality and consistency.

This online journal originates from the desire of sharing with the largest number of people the cultural excitement and richness experienced during the conferences and workshops that are part of the activities of the Euresis association. Central to the journal will be a look at science as a peculiar, and by itself surprising dimension of the human quest for truth. We wish to develop an open and rigorous discussion, among scientists as well as with scholars of extra-scientific background, in order to fully appreciate the method and content of scientific knowledge.

We wish to look at the work of past and present scientists as a unique actualization and development in time of the profound longing for truth and meaning that characterizes our human nature. We believe that this approach has the potential to help everyone, involved or interested in science, in appreciating the real depth of the human reason and, at the same time, the width and beauty of the realms that can be explored through science.

At the heart of scientific investigation is our awareness that nature has a trustworthy rational structure, even if we do not know why and how. Far from being a possible source of doubts, the sense of surprise and wonder for the rational comprehensibility of the world has been and continues to be one of the main triggers for the advancement of scientific knowledge. This point can best be appreciated by recalling the sense of joy and excitement produced in us by discoveries, even small ones, especially when they reveal novel fundamental aspects of nature that went unperceived previously.





Ulisses Barres de Almeida is an Astrophysicist at the Brazilian Center for Research in Physics (CBPF), an institute of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, and an external researcher associated to the Max-Planck-Institute for Physics, Germany. He graduated in Physics from the University of Sao Paulo (2003), where he also obtained his Master’s degree in Radio Astronomy (2006). He holds a Ph.D. in High-energy Astrophysics from the University of Durham (UK). Currently he is a member of the MAGIC Collaboration for VHE Gamma-ray Astronomy and the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA), a Consortium to design and build the next-generation of Cherenkov Telescopes, planned to start operations in 2019. His research concentrates in Astroparticle Physics, Gamma-ray Astronomy and Observational Extragalactic Astrophysics. Since 2014, he is a Fellow of the Institute of Advanced Study in Durham, a think-thank for insterdisciplinary research.

Juan Rojo is a STFC Rutherford Fellow at the Rudolf Peierls Center for Theoretical Physics of the University of Oxford.  He graduated in Physics from the University of Barcelona (2002), where he also obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics (2006), in perturbative Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD). He has performed postdoctoral research at the LPTHE in Paris, France (2006-08), at the INFN and Dipartimento di Fisica, Milano University, Italy (2008-11) and at the Theory Unit of the European Center for Nuclear Physics (CERN), Switzerland (2011-2014). His research is focused on the phenomenology of perturbative QCD and their applications to Large Hadron Collider (LHC) physics. He is a member of the NNPDF Collaboration for the determination of parton distributions of the nucleon. He is referee for the Spanish National Center for Particle Physics (i-CPAN), for the Journal of High Energy Physics and for the Romanian National Science Foundation.
