The conference will bring together renowned scientists and young researchers in physics, astronomy, computer science, life sciences and neuroscience to discuss the role of information in the physics of our Universe. Can we describe our physical reality as a collection of constantly evolving information states? Can this be a new approach to understanding dark matter, dark energy and consciousness?
