Symposium on the Physics of Information in Matter
Wednesday, November 2, 2022

Registration is closed.

Symposium Scope

We live in an age of complex matter and information. Information processing machines are material systems, governed and limited by the laws of physics. Moreover, natural systems from biochemical networks to brains inspire alternative computing methods and platforms. Finally, complex systems may be understood in terms of information processing.

These distinct threads all straddle the interface between information and matter. In this workshop, we will bring together the dutch community that operate on this interface, to ask the question:

What do we gain by intertwining information and matter?
