LETTER OF APPRECIATION for the WSEAS NAUN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCES in Salerno, Italy, June 27-29, 2015

Dear Salerno International Conferences Committees and Associates,
 
I just returned from the conferences in Salerno, June 27-29, 2015, and want to take a moment to thank you for making it such a worthwhile experience. I know you spent many months planning the event, and it showed. I especially liked your selection of plenary and invited speakers.
 
According to my humble knowledge, for the first time in West scientific history, from speakers’ presentation emerged clearly, with sounding examples, the current paradigm shift from “Science 1.0” to “Science 2.0” in scientific and engineering applications we are experiencing even at the social level today.
 
Many “Science 1.0” researchers and scientists up to scientific journals assume that the ultimate language of science is associated to the “continuum hypothesis” assumption and it is even the traditional instrument of risk-taking. Unfortunately, deep epistemic limitations reside in some parts of the areas covered in risk analysis and decision making applied to real problems.
 
In 1924, the fresh idea of a wave description associated to elementary discrete systems has emerged from a major ontological paradigm shift with respect to Classical Physics, which still provides the framework of the vision of Nature of most scientists and engineers, since 1687.
 
This change of paradigm has not yet been completely grasped by contemporary Science  and Technology, so that not all the implications of this change have been realized hitherto, even less their related applications. So, the fresh approach, developed under the ”discreteness hypothesis” assumption, in specific scientific disciplines, was considered in peculiar application areas only, historically.
 
As a matter of fact, to grasp a deeper representation of reality, researchers and scientists need two intelligently articulated hands: both stochastic and combinatorial approach synergically articulated by natural coupling; let’s say we need a fresh ”Science 2.0” approach.
 
Over more than three centuries, the above two large scientific research areas (continuum based and discreteness based) have followed separate mathematical development paths with no articulated synergistic coupling.

That is the main reason why the “Science 2.0” approach is still mostly overlooked by traditional scientific and engineering researchers for system multi-scale modeling, from system nanoscale to macroscale and beyond.
 
Unfortunately, the ”probabilistic veil” can be very opaque computationally by itself , in a continuum-discrete arbitrary multi-scale environment, and misplaced precision leads to information dissipation and confusion.
 
Your conferences in Salerno gave the right perspective to this major and fundamental problem in current Science and Engineering.
 
Eventually, I like to appreciate the specific contributes of Prof. Nikos Mastorakis, Prof Aurelio Tommasetti, Prof. Leonardo Cascini, Prof. Joseph Quartieri and Prof. Claudio Guarnaccia. Furthermore Dr. Anna Papadimitriou, Dr. Olga Nikolova and Mrs. Rayna Moskova, for their fine work, excellent planning and realistic scheduling  that resulted in informative and smooth running meetings.
 
Next year's organizers will have their hands full trying to equal the quality of this year's event. Thanks for making your conferences so worthwhile.
 
Thanks to you and your committees, your companies and the University of Salerno now have an outstanding model to follow and to share for the future, towards a more sustainable economy and well-being, in a global competition scenario.
 
Best regards,

Rodolfo A. Fiorini

Dear Anna,

The conference was very interesting, and we are planning to go to a future
WSEAS (and NAUN) conference again. I didn't take any picture.

Thanks again.

Dear WSEAS

I accept your invitation to participate in the Scientific Committee for WSEAS Conferences CSCC / INASE 2016.
In addition I could be a conference photographer too, I just need to find a better camera.
I heard from my Latvian colleague that in 2016 you are going to organize one WSEAS conference in Latvia,
Is that still actual? In Latvia I really can help a lot, but I also do not mind to travel and work in hot countries like Greece ;-).
Can you imagine that in Latvia in this July the air temperature is only 18-22C? Is it colder that sea temperature on Zakynthos!

Best wishes,

Best Regards,

Dear Professor

It was a pleasant time in Salerno during the Conference and it was a pleasure
to meet and to discuss with You also in Pompei! I got the E-mail and I hope
the ISI journal publication also will sucsess (sorry for my mistake I send my
paper too early I will send it in time next time). I wish also the best to your
wife, Maria! Please keep in touch and let me attach a file about my gearbox.
If You can halp me to get 10 minutes to present the advantages of this
invention by a company I would be very glad! Thank You again and I wish You a
pleasant summer holiday!
