The 13th international symposium on Origin of Matter and Evolution of Galaxies (OMEG2015) will be held in Beijing, China on June 24-27, 2015. This symposium is the 13th of such series, started 1988, to exchange the progress of nuclear astrophysics and related fields. As demonstrated in previous ones, this symposium series provide good opportunity to attract researchers in fields of nuclear physics, astrophysics, and more.

The behaviour of physical fundamental constants is an effective way to probe fundamental physics and cosmological models. The fine-structure constant α and the proton-to-electron mass ratio µ can be studied with a range of physical observables across the Universe, including spectra of the more distant quasars, Cosmic Microwave Background and Primordial Nucleosynthesis. A connection between the variation of fundamental parameters and the nature of dark energy could be tested. We will bring together the most active researchers in this area to discuss the latest developments. The conference proceedings will be possibly published in the Memorie della Società Astronomica Italiana.
