Workshop on Informatic Phenomena
First Annual Workshop
Tulane University
New Orleans, LA USA
October 13 - 17, 2008
Partially Supported by the
Pendergraft Herbert Buchanan Fund
The Workshops on Informatic Phenomena are an annual series of meetings focusing on the meaning and utility of information in a wide range of disciplines. These areas emanate from mathematics and computer science, and include areas such as classical and quantum information and computing, physics, computational chemistry, systems biology and economic game theory. The workshops are aimed at bringing together researchers in these disparate areas in order to facilitate interactions between them and to inspire new collaborations among these and other relevant areas. The organizers of the series are Keye Martin (NRL) and Michael Mislove (Tulane).

A detailed program is posted here.  

There is no cost to attend the workshop talks, but we do ask those interested to inform us so we can make sure the facilities are adequate. We will include all participants in most of the functions at no cost. Those activities for which we have to ask participants to cover the cost of their participation are the Monday evening welcoming event and the workshop dinner on Thursday evening. Please contact us at for more information about these events and their cost.
