The Integration of Information Processing
Download the program

Three days of interdisciplinary exploration of the abiotic and biotic development of information and knowledge within the natural sciences of biology, chemistry and physics, within computational systems, and within socioeconomic systems.

Specific areas of exploration include macroevolution, ecosystems, developmental biology, hierarchies of codification and cognition, entropy, symmetry/asymmetry, the artificial, and the social. The underlying theme of exploration within all these disciplines is the codal or semiotic organization of evolution and development of information and knowledge within our cosmos.
