Elegance and parsimony to understand Nature through symmetry methods was one of the hallmarks in the work of Professor Marcos Moshinsky (1921—2009). These methods continue to blossom in a profusion of tools, topics, and areas of modern physics and mathematics. The Symposium on Symmetries in Nature was convened to manifest the present diversity of their applications.
