31 May - 2 June 2019, MCMP-Western Ontario Workshop on Computation in Scientific Theory & Practice, Munich, Germany

Date: 31 May - 2 June 2019
Location: Munich, Germany
Deadline: Sunday 17 March 2019

The goal of this interdisciplinary meeting is to explore philosophical and historical issues that arise at the intersection of theoretical computer science, mathematics, and natural science, including issues that arise in the practice of those disciplines.

Conference topics include: the history of computer science; the foundations of computation and mathematical cognition; computational and informational perspectives on scientific decision making, scientific methodology, and the characterisation of scientific theories; physical notions of computation and the 'Physical Church-Turing Thesis'.

Prospective authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of between 600-1000 words, along with a short abstract of no more than 150 words. We especially encourage submissions from early career researchers and researchers from underrepresented groups, although submissions from researchers in all stages of their career and from all groups are welcome.
