SMC — 2017 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man and Cybernetics
01 Oct 2017 - 04 Oct 2017 • Banff, AB, Canada
IEEE SMC 2014 The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC2017) will be held at the unique BANFF SPRINGS RESORT, Banff, Canada. SMC2017 is the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. It provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to report up-to-the-minute innovations and development, summarize state-of-the-art, and exchange ideas and advances in all aspects of systems science and engineering, human machine systems, and cybernetics. Advances in systems science and engineering, human-machine systems, and cybernetics have increasing importance in the creation of intelligent environments involving technologies interacting with humans to provide an enriching experience, and thereby improve quality of life.

ECMISciTech2017 — The first international conference on the “Evolution of Contemporary Mathematics and their Impact in Sciences and Technology”
09 Oct 2017 - 12 Oct 2017 • Constantine, Algeria
The conference will represent an international Forum in which leading researchers, doctoral students and graduates, experts in several fields of Science, Technology and Engineering are gathered around various fields of the pure and the applied mathematics. The major aim of the conference is to promote scientific research in the area of fundamental sciences via the evolution of mathematics on the theoretical and practical grounds directly related to the physical sciences, engineering and industry, technological advances, sciences of nature and economy.

VIIJFC — VII Conference on Quantum Foundations: 90 years of uncertainty
29 Nov 2017 - 01 Dec 2017 • Cordoba, Argentina
We are pleased to annnounce the VII Conference on Quantum Foundations: 90 years of uncertainty (VIIJFC), which will be held on November 29, 30 and December 1, at Facultad de Matemática, Astronomía, Física y Computación, Córdoba, Argentina.

The event will gather in a convivial atmosphere researchers, postdoctoral fellows, and doctoral and graduate students, interested in

promoting debate around fundamental questions of quantum theory and applications.

As every year, we hope to have your participation.

A Fractured Universe? Fundamental Physics, Symmetry and Life
30 Nov 2017 • University of Sydney, Australia
A Fractured Universe? Fundamental Physics, Symmetry and Life
30 Nov 2017 - 01 Dec 2017 • Sydney, Australia
Our cosmos displays a curious mixture of symmetry and asymmetry. Why is it that some symmetries hold (electric charge, spin, mass-energy), some almost hold (baryon number, lepton number, parity, cosmic homogeneity), some are broken (chiral symmetry, electroweak gauge symmetry), and some don't hold at all (macroscopic time asymmetry)? Does the answer to these fundamental questions lie in their effect on the creation of observers like us? Or do symmetry principles, as John Wheeler argued, merely summarise while hiding the real machinery of nature?

In light of these challenges, this workshop will bring together physicists, cosmologists, astronomers and philosophers for two days of invited and contributed talks. We invite talks on such topics as:

* the role of symmetries in fundamental laws of nature

* symmetry breaking in cosmology and particle physics

* cosmic and fundamental constants

* physical theories of the multiverse

* the role of probability theory in evaluating fine-tuning and naturalness

* the connection between life and our cosmic environment

* the broader implications of our place in the cosmos.

Entropy 2018: From Physics to Information Sciences and Geometry
14 May 2018 - 16 May 2018 • 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:  physics  and  information 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.
