Mini-conference Information Universe

When:Th 01-10-2020 14:00 - 18:00

Sadly the current COVID-19 pandemic forces us to postpone an in-person IU conference to 2021. This year, on 1 October 2020, we will instead organize a short, but intensive, ~3-hour mini-conference hosting a selection of the original keynote speakers: Charley Lineweaver, Wendy Freedman, Erik Verlinde, Bas Beukers, and Carter Emmart who will give an OpenSpace online planetarium show. During this event we will also present the very first popular science book on the Information Universe: "Powers of Two — The Information Universe" (Springer-Nature 2020) with contributions of many Information Universe conference speakers — highlighted by a foreword from Robbert Dijkgraaf. The mini-conference fee will be €45, which includes:

  • Access to all presentations and Q&A sessions,
  • A conference kit with the new Target Fieldlab Brochure,
  • A physical hardcover copy of the "Powers of Two" book, sent to your home address without additional cost (retail price: ~€45 excl. shipping).

Please register here, and we'll see you then!
