The logo:

Hephestos (Ἥφαιστος) son of Zeus is the god of the smithy and the patron of craftspeople and technologists. His command of the metals is reflected in this micrograph of intergranular fracture in a sheet of tungsten after a 17 MW laser strike.



    “Understanding from Knowledge” (Γνῶθι Mαθών) – means that no problem goes unexplained.
