Bayesian Inference and Maximum Entropy Methods in Science and Engineering
2016-07-10 to 2016-07-15
Ghent, Belgium
For over 35 years, the MaxEnt workshops have explored the use of Bayesian and Maximum Entropy methods in scientific and engineering applications. The workshop invites contributions on all aspects of probabilistic inference, including novel techniques and applications, and work that sheds new light on the foundations of inference. In previous workshops, areas of application have included astronomy and astrophysics, chemistry, communications theory, cosmology, climate studies, earth science, fluid mechanics, genetics, geophysics, machine learning, material science, medical imaging, nanoscience, source separation, thermodynamics (equilibrium and non-equilibrium), particle physics, plasma physics, quantum mechanics, robotics and social sciences. Bayesian computational techniques such as Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling have been regular topics, as are approximate inferential methods. Foundational issues involving probability theory and information theory, and the novel application of inference to illuminate the foundations of physical theories, have also been of keen interest.

14th Joint European Thermodynamics Conference (JETC2017)
2017-05-21 to 2017-05-25
Budapest, Hungary

Methods and concepts of equilibrium and non-equilibrium thermodynamics appear in various areas of physics, engineering, sciences and humanities. This wide range of applicability is a source of inspiration, but also a cause of separation and divergence. The aim of this conference is to improve the interaction and pull together the various application areas and theoretical branches in order to develop a more powerful and more applicable discipline.

In Mini-Symposia various specific thermodynamic related topics are introduced by experts and discussed by the audience. The presentations of the participants are organized in Sessions, according to their topics. The interaction is enhanced also by poster sessions along the coffee breaks.

The JETC conferences were established in 1989 under the name Journées Européennes de Thermodynamique Contemporaine by ECAST, the European Center for Advanced Studies in Thermodynamics.

As it was desirable to enlarge the scope of the conferences and to unite thermodynamics across Europe, the conferences changed name in 2007 to Joint European Thermodynamics Conference while the acronym remained the same.

Topological and Geometrical Structure of Information 2017
2017-08-28 to 2017-09-01
Luminy Marseille, France

TGSI2017 is dedicated to the geometrical and topological foundations of information theory. It will complement the 2017, 2016, 2015 and 2013 edition of "Geometric science of information" and "Information Geometry and its Applications IV", by focusing on the advances of entropy and information functions in probability, geometry, homology, algebra, category theory and their expression in physic and data analysis. There have been rapid recent developments in several different research communities in this connection, with little interaction between them, and one of the goals of the conference is to bring these communities in contact.

The conferences will review many of the new developments involving the interplay of information and algebraic and differential geometry, number theory, probability and homology. The conference will emphasize the richness and diversity of information approaches and principles that arose in mathematics, physics, and statistical data analysis (...), and will pursue at the same time the perspective of establishing a coherent theory. It emphasizes an active participation of young researchers to discuss emerging topics of collaborative research.
