Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are inviting contributions to a joint Special Issue of the journal Information and Philosophies dedicated to our colleague Professor Mark Burgin, who recently passed away. Mark Burgin was a distinguished mathematician, computer scientist, philosopher, and information theoretician who made significant contributions to various fields, including information and computation, foundations of mathematics, philosophy of information and computation, theory of knowledge, and logic.

Mark Burgin's innovative ideas and research had a profound impact on many areas of study, providing novel insights and advancing our understanding of complex information-based phenomena. His interdisciplinary approach, bridging the gaps between different fields, led to new connections, approaches, and applications that significantly influenced the development of these fields.

We welcome papers that cover a wide range of topics, including information and computation, category theory, foundations of mathematics, philosophy of language, logic, and applications of mathematical structures in various fields. The papers should be original and make significant contributions to their respective fields.

Through this Special Issue, we aim to honor the memory of Mark Burgin and celebrate his remarkable career. We hope that this issue will serve as a testament to his contributions and as a source of inspiration for future research in the fields to which he has contributed so significantly.

Please submit your papers by 10th December 2023 through our online submission system.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Philosophies.
