Call for workshops and performances in Vienna

We present you with three of the already confirmed workshops for this year's SGEM Vienna Art Conference. Two really important parts of the main focuses of SWS Scientific Society are first, the prolific rendezvous of Science and Art; and second, the integration of green technologies in both science and art. That's why we created our special workshops panel - to give our participants a space for action. The idea of these sessions is to involve you and give you the chance to immerse yourself into the creative realms where scientific achievements enrich the artistic imagination and vice versa. Our mission is to facilitate the conversation between environmentalists, artists, and scientists, in order to show how elucidating and inspiring their collaboration could be.

We invite you to participate with your own workshop or as a spectator, and why not both. It's up to you!

What does the writer say

Ernest Hemingway

"There is nothing else than now. There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow. How old must you be before you know that? There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion. This is how you live a life in two days. And if you stop complaining and asking for what you never will get, you will have a good life. A good life is not measured by any biblical span."
― For Whom the Bell Tolls

The great free will debate

Is there free will or not?

One of the oldest and most perplexing philosophical questions of all time. Do we have a choice or are we just subject to the predetermination of our biochemistry? And if we don't have free will, are we responsible for our actions or not? What is the relation between free will and morals? And many more topics debated by some of today's brightest minds.
