Andrea Moro (born 1962) is full professor of General Linguistics at the Institute for Advanced Study, IUSS Pavia and director of the Research Center for Neurolinguistics and Theoretical Syntax Ne.T.S. He was for several times Fulbright student and visiting scientist at MIT and Harvard University and obtained a "Diplôme d’études supérieures en théorie de la syntaxe et syntaxe comparative" at the University of Geneva. He lectured in many Universities in Europe, the USA and Japan, including the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, the Collège de France, the University of Cambridge and the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig. His main fields of research are theoretical syntax and neurolinguistics. Among his books are The Raising of Predicates (Cambridge, 1997), Dynamic Antisymmetry (MIT Press, 2000) and The Boundaries of Babel (MIT Press, 2008), Breve Storia del Verbo “Essere” (Adelphi, 2010), Parlo Dunque Sono (Adelphi, 2012),and The Equilibrium of Human Syntax (Routledge, 2013); he also published several papers on international journals.

John Polkinghorne

Queens College, Cambridge, CB3 9ET, UK

Fellow of the Royal Society, Fellow (and former President) of Queens’ College, Cambridge. He has published many papers on theoretical elementary physics and two technical scientific books, The Analytic S-Matrix (CUP 1966) and Models of High Energy Processes (CUP 1980). He has also published many books on science and religion. Dr. Polkinghorne was awarded the Templeton Prize in 2002, and also, in that year, became the founding president of the International Society for Science and Religion.

Juan Rojo

Physics Department, TH Unit, CERN, CH-1211, Geneva 23, Switzerland

Juan Rojo is a Marie Curie fellow at the Theory Unit of the European Center for Nuclear Physics (CERN), Switzerland. 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) and at the INFN and Dipartimento di Fisica, Milano University, Italy (2008-11). 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, and is Editor-in-Chief of Euresis Journal.  

Lucio Rossi

European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) CH-1211 Geneva 23 - Switzerland

Professor Lucio Rossi is currently the Head of the Magnets, Cryostats and Superconductors Group at CERN. Graduated in Physics from the University of Milan, he is since 1981 a researcher at the INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare - Italy), being since 1992 associate professor of the Physics Department at the University of Milan. In 1989, he Lucio Rossi started a collaboration with CERN for the development and construction of the first magnet prototypes for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), eventually joining the ATLAS collaboration in 1997 and leaving the University of Milan in 2001 to take up a position at CERN within the LHC project. In 2004, Professor Rossi set up the european Network for High Field Pulsating Magnets for Hadron Colliders, of which he is still responsible. Rossi has also participated in the AMS experiment onboard the International Space Station (1998) for which he proposed a new technology for the protection of astronauts from cosmic radiation during interplanetary flights. Since 2000, Rossi is the representing member for Italy at the International Organising Committee of the "Magnet Technology Conference".
