Entropy 2018: From Physics to Information Sciences and Geometry
14 May 2018 - 16 May 2018 • Barcelona, Spain
Abstract:
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.

Exploring identity: lessons from genomes and epigenomes
31 May 2018 • Paris, France
Abstract:
Exploring the determinants of identity raises significant challenges with far-reaching consequences for both our fundamental understanding of living systems and our ability to intervene clinically to re-establish identity in pathological scenarios. Genomes and epigenomes respond dynamically to changes in the local environment, contributing to defining identities and transmitting memories to subsequent generations. This interplay creates the complexity and adaptability that define living systems. During the one-day symposium, we will discuss how genome organization and epigenome function contribute to the regulation of gene expression and cellular identities.

ESU-8 — 8th EUROPEAN SUMMER UNIVERSITY ON HISTORY AND EPISTEMOLOGY IN MATHEMATICS EDUCATION
20 Jul 2018 - 24 Jul 2018 • Oslo, Norway
Abstract:
The ESU is more a collection of intensive courses than a conference for researchers. It is a place where teachers and researchers meet and work together. It is also a place where beginners, more experienced researchers and teachers present their teaching experience to the benefit of the participants and get a constructive feedback from them. It refers to all levels of education – from primary school, to tertiary education – including in-service teachers’ training.

NeutrinoHistory2018 — History of the Neutrino
05 Sep 2018 - 07 Sep 2018 • Paris, France
Abstract:
Neutrinos play an exceptional role as well in particle or nuclear physics as in astrophysics. The purpose of the Conference is to cover the main steps of their History since the brilliant and inspired idea of Pauli in December 1930. Though trying to cover all the facets of this fascinating particle, it should be considered as a contribution to the History of the Neutrino, since some chapters are still to be written. The objective is, on each topic, to have an historian/historical approach and follow as close as possible the original papers in correlation with the scientific and historical context.
Topics:
Neutrino ; History ; weak interactions ; oscillations ; Majorana ; neutral currents

7OSME — The 7th International Meeting on Origami in Science, Mathematics and Education
05 Sep 2018 - 07 Sep 2018 • Oxford University, United Kingdom
Abstract:
The Origami, Science, Mathematics, and Education (OSME) meetings offer researchers from science, engineering, mathematics, design, art, and education that use origami (or folding in any medium) in their work. Uses of origami in engineering and science applications, as well as in art and design, has exploded over the past 10 years, as had study of the mathematics of paper folding and its use as an engaging and effective educational tool. The OSME conferences have taken place every 4-6 years since 1989. The Proceedings of the 6th OSME conference (Univ. of Tokyo, 2014) was published by the AMS. In 2018 the 7th such conference will be held at St. Anne's College, Oxford University.

Srinivasa Ramanujan: in celebration of the centenary of his election as FRS
15 Oct 2018 - 16 Oct 2018 • The Royal Society, London, United Kingdom
Abstract:
This meeting is a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Ramanujan’s election as FRS. Distinguished scientists will speak on Ramanujan’s mathematics and its extraordinary legacy across many fields: Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics. The emphasis will be on recent, cutting edge research. The primary goal is to have leaders from these four important threads interact, share ideas, and develop cross-disciplinary collaborations.
