Since a connection was made in the 19th Century between increase of entropy and earlier expressions of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the topic has continued to fascinate engineers, physicists, chemists, computer scientists, mathematicians and philosophers. The topic of entropy is very much alive, as witnessed by the highly cited proceedings of a lively conference on the subject, held in Dresden Germany in 2000 [1]. Our intention in running a theme program seven years after the Dresden conference was to stimulate connections between entropy theory and broader applications. The papers in this special issue arose from a meeting of the AMSI-MASCOS Theme Program, Concepts of Entropy and their Applications, which took place in Melbourne Australia, November 26- December 12, 2007.
