Entropy Upcoming Events Announce Your Event Here
14–16 May 2018 From Physics to Information Sciences and Geometry
One of the most frequently used scientific words, is the word “Entropy”. The reason is that it is related to two main scientific domains: physics and information theory. Its origin goes back to the start of physics (thermodynamics), but since Shannon, it has become related to information theory. This conference is an opportunity to bring researchers of these two communities together and create a synergy. The main topics and sessions of the conference cover:
Physics: classical Thermodynamics and Quantum
Statistical physics and Bayesian computation
Geometrical science of information, topology and metrics
Maximum entropy principle and inference
Kullback and Bayes or information theory and Bayesian inference
Entropy in action (applications)
The inter-disciplinary nature of contributions from both theoretical and applied perspectives are very welcome, including papers addressing conceptual and methodological developments, as well as new applications of entropy and information theory.
11–13 December 2017 The 2nd International Biannual Symposium on "Complexity, Criticality & Computation" (C³ 2017)
What makes a system 'complex'? A system can be thought of as complex if its dynamics cannot be easily predicted, or explained, as a linear summation of the individual dynamics of its components. In other words, the many constituent microscopic parts bring about macroscopic phenomena that cannot be understood by considering a single part alone. There is a growing awareness that complexity is strongly related to criticality: the behaviour of dynamical spatiotemporal systems at an order/disorder phase transition where scale invariance prevails. Complex systems can also be viewed as distributed information-processing systems, particularly in the domains of computational neuroscience, health, bioinformatics, systems biology and artificial life. Consciousness emerging from neuronal activity and interactions, cell behaviour resultant from gene regulatory networks and swarming behaviour are all examples of global system behaviour emerging as a result of the local interactions of the individuals (neurons, genes, animals). Can these interactions be seen as a generic computational process? This question shapes the third component of our symposium, linking computation to complexity and criticality.
The C³ 2017 Symposium will cover a diverse range of theoretical and practical approaches to computational modelling of complex systems, including information theory, agent-based simulation, statistical physics, network theory, nonlinear dynamics, swarm intelligence, evolutionary methods, artificial life, computational epidemiology, computational neuroscience, and econophysics, among others.

23–28 July 2018 XIX International Congress on Mathematical Physics (ICMP 2018)
Montreal, QC, Canada
On behalf of the International Association of Mathematical Physics, the International Scientific Committee, and the Local Organizing Committee we invite you to participate in the XIX International Congress on Mathematical Physics to be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada from July 23 to July 28. The International Congress of Mathematical Physics (ICMP), on its three year cycle, is the most important conference of the International Association of Mathematical Physics. The ICMP 2018 will be a major event, where new results and future challenges will be discussed, illustrating the richness and vitality of Mathematical Physics.
Following a tradition started in London in 2000, the ICMP 2018 will be preceded by the Young Researchers Symposium (July 20 and 21, 2018). Seven satellite meetings are being organized in Banff, Toronto, Montreal, and Perimeter Institute either before or after ICMP 2018.
We hope that you will be able to attend and contribute to the success of the meeting.
We are looking forward to see you in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 2018.
Chair of the Local Organizing Committee
Robert Seiringer, Chair
President of the International Association of Mathematical Physics, and Chair of the International Scientific Committee
