14-16 May 2018; Auditorium Enric Casassas, Faculty of Chemistry, University of Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain

One of the most frequently used scientific words, is the word “

Entropy”. The reason is that it is related to two main scientific domains:physicsandinformation theory. Its origin goes back to the start of physics (thermodynamics), but since Shannon, it has become related to information theory. This conference is an opportunity to bring researchers of these two communities together and create a synergy. The main topics and sessions of the conference cover:

Physics: classical Thermodynamics and QuantumStatistical physics and Bayesian computationGeometrical science of information, topology and metricsMaximum entropy principle and inferenceKullback and Bayes or information theory and Bayesian inferenceEntropy in action (applications)The inter-disciplinary nature of contributions from both

theoreticalandapplied perspectivesare very welcome, including papers addressingconceptual and methodological developments, as well asnew applications of entropy and information theory.All accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the conference. A selection of invited and contributed talks presented during the conference will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for a special issue of the open access Journal

Entropy.
