Courtesy of the Quantum Pontiff, I recently found out about the following: a fellow physicist at the University of Central Florida is organizing a conference that exemplifies how much more interdisciplinary science in general is getting (and serves as another reasonable rebuttal to Ezekial Emanual, discussed in the previous post). Here’s the announcement:
Call for participation: I2Lab Workshop ‘Frontiers in Quantum and Biological Information Processing’ in Orlando, November 16-17, 2006 http://i2lab.ucf.edu/News/Workshops.html
The Workshop ‘Frontiers in Quantum and Biological Information Processing’ will be held at the University of Central Florida (UCF), in Orlando, FL, on November 16th and 17th, 2006. It is sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Information Science and Technology Laboratory (I2Lab) at UCF. The organizers are James Hickman, Michael Leuenberger, Dan Marinescu, Eduardo Mucciolo, and Pawel Wocjan.
For more information on the motivation, the program, the list of invited speakers and program directors from funding agencies, and registration go to http://i2lab.ucf.edu/News/Workshops.html
There is a limited number of slots for non-invited participants. The registration will remain open until all the slots are filled.
