The Intercontinental Academia is presided by a Senior Committee of seven leading scholars from five countries, in the areas of physiology, biology, chronobiology, particle physics, philosophy, history and information systems. The committee has the support of a General Secretary .

The IEA’s Scientific Committee for this project is composed of eight members, including Brazil’s new Minister of Education, Renato Janine Ribeiro; the Dean of Research of the University of São Paulo (USP), Jose Eduardo Krieger; the President of the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), Hernan Chaimovich; as well as exponents from IEA’s visiting professors and research groups, and from the broader academic community (UNICAMP and FAPESP).

More than 30 lecturers from the fields of anthropology, philosophy, neurobiology, chronobiology, physics and biology, among others, will present papers conducive to ample discussions on “Time,” the unifying theme of the entire project.

The project also includes 13 participants, young researchers from different scientific areas and nine countries (Germany, England, Finland, India, Japan, China, Taiwan, United States and Brazil).

Eight critical rapporteurs will be in charge of elaborating a scientific report on the whole event. Furthermore, a documentary will be produced by a specialized team.

Institutional Support for the project is provided by scholars from the Institute for Advanced Research (IAR) at Nagoya University (Japan), by General Secretary and by members of the IEA-USP staff.
