Date: Thursday, April 8

Venue: Online

Partnering with the Info-Metrics Institute at American University, the Center for Science of Information announces an online interdisciplinary workshop providing a forum for new info-metrics research. For the most up to date information visit the workshop page.

Workshop Objectives

In honor of Shannon's 105th Birthday, and in celebration of our recently edited book Advances in Info-Metrics: Information and Information Processing across Disciplines (Chen, Dunn, Golan, Ullah, OUP, 2021), we will have a one-day online workshop to discuss recent advances in info- metrics and information-theoretic inference. The workshop will focus on info-metrics in the 21st century – recent advances, open questions and directions for future research within an interdisciplinary perspective. The aims of the workshop are to provide a forum for the dissemination of new research in all areas of info-metrics and to stimulate discussion between researchers, and students, across fields.

The workshop will consist of invited talks, papers’ presentations, a graduate student session and a panel discussion.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):

  • Modeling and Inference
  • Applied Info-Metrics Inference
  • Philosophy of info-metrics
  • Causal Inference and info-metrics
  • AI, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and info-metrics
  • Covid-19 and info-metrics
  • Inequality and info-metrics
