Workshop Objectives

The overall objective of this workshop is to continue the study of the foundations of info-metrics and information processing across the sciences.

The objective of this workshop is to continue the exploration into the basics of info-Metrics and entropic inference. In that workshop we focus on Info-Metrics in the natural sciences, study the state of information-theoretic estimation and data analysis in some areas of the natural sciences, and then discuss the implications of info-metrics in the natural sciences to the social sciences in general and to economics, econometrics, statistics and finance in particular.
