The present Special Issue on Information and Symmetry follows from the special session on Information & Symmetry to be organized in the Symmetry Festival 2016 (in Vienna, 18–22 July 2016, http://festival.symmetry.hu/). With this Special Issue, we try to deepen our understanding of the relationships between two of the most vexed concepts in theoretical science. In spite of clear and cut developments in both realms, their intersection is really problematic, either in mathematics, physics, biology, neurosciences, or social sciences. We will welcome exploratory contributions from any of those domains. With this Special Issue, we are also celebrating the near 20th anniversary of the first joint session between Symmetrion (Symmetry Institute) and FIS (Foundations of Information Science) on information and symmetry matters (Washington 1995) and the subsequent special issues (Symmetry and Culture, 1996 and 1997). It will be a good occasion to meet again some of those contributors and pass over the views developed during this period.
