Developing the theory of complexity, physicist Murray Gell-Mann invented the term plectica from the Greek world plecto, literally "intertwine garlands". For the American scientist, who won the Nobel prize in 1969, plectica defines the interdisciplinary analysis of the interrelations between simple elements and complex systems. So our logo is composed of surfaces, fast, complex, that like the different knowledge, intertwine to form a new figure. The logo, therefore, represents the hope that something new can emerge from a continuous search for diversity.
