Information studies can be divided into three approaches: theoretical, experimental and practical (applied) information studies.
Information theory constitutes the basic field of theoretical information studies but there are also other important fields. One of them, of special interest here, is the application of information theory to the theoretical areas of sciences and humanities. The areas of interest to the Symposium include, but are not restricted to:
Application of information theory to:
– theoretical physics
– theoretical computer science
– theory of complexity
– theoretical linguistics
– theory in economics
– semiotics and similar.
