Call for Expression of Interest in Hosting the Entropy Conference


The Entropy Steering Committee seeks Expressions of Interest (EoI) from universities/organizations/individual scholars to host an edition of the Entropy Conference Series. There is no restriction in the geographic areas considered.

What is Entropy?

Entropy is a conference series dedicated to bring together scientists and leaders from different areas to discuss important recent developments and ideas of cutting-edge research related to Entropy.

The First Entropy conference was held in 2018 in Barcelona, Spain. This conference brought researchers with an inter-disciplinary nature of contributions from both theoretical and applied perspectives of Entropy, that ranged from Physics to Information theory. You can find a brief summary of the first edition here.

The Selection Committee looks forward to receiving your EoI. Please feel free to forward this call for EoI to other interested parties.

Please note that the follow-on editions will not be restrained to the topics discussed in previous editions and, therefore, new and different topics within the Entropy field are sought.

Important Dates

The Entropy conference is organized every two years. The Entropy Steering Committee is accepting EoIs to organize editions from 2020 onwards.
