IU Topics

During the Information Universe conference we aspire to bring together experts as well as young researchers from a number of different communities, to discuss and debate the definition and interpretation of information. We study the role of information in the way we try to build understanding and accumulate insights in physics, astronomy, cosmology, computational science, mathematics, bio-informatics, neuroscience, crossovers in Physics- information - AI and life sciences in general. Contributions from any of these fields are strongly encouraged.
