Workshop on Information and processes



The workshop on Information and Processes (WIP 2016) will take place in Fontainebleau, France on April 26th – 29th in the pleasant woodland surroundings of Paris Diderot University’s Fontainebleau Educational and Research Centre, a short distance from Paris.

WIP 2016 will be the eighth in a series of workshops, the goal of which is to bring together researchers with interests in a range of areas broadly pertaining to information, information flow, and its applications.

Each participant will be encouraged to give a talk on his or her current research. In keeping with the tradition of the previous editions, the main topics for WIP 2016 will be the following (though talks from related areas are also welcome).

  1. -Quantum information & foundations

  2. -Concurrency

  3. -Probabilistic models

  4. -Systems biology

Talks will take place over the first three days (April 26th – 28th) with the final day (April 29th) reserved for a group outing.
