21st - 23rd: The Harmony of the World Join us in St Petersburg, Russia, for a unique event - a gathering of scholars to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the publication of Johannes' Kepler's Harmonices Mundi (The Harmony of the World). Kepler was one of the greatest minds of the 17th century, and he made an extraordinary contribution to astronomy, astrology, geometry and cosmology. At a time of historic transformation in Europe he asked how the cosmos operates - and how we can live in harmony with it. Our line-up of distinguished academic speakers will consider and debate the origins, importance and significance of Kepler's remarkable work. The conference takes place during the 'White Nights' when days are at their longest, and we will enjoy St Petersburg at its most glorious. Our first day will take place on the summer solstice itself and we plan to celebrate in the evening with a special organ concert. We will visit the Kepler archive and have a chance to view Kepler's own manuscripts and on Sunday we will enjoy the conference dinner on a river cruise.
