A New Perception of Informatics and its Relation to Mathematics and Physics

  • DATE / TIME:
    2012•08•31    15:00 - 16:30

    This seminar presents a new, much broader and deeper perception of informatics (computer science) and discusses the reasons why such a perception is proper and desirable.

    The seminar presents informatics as having four deeply related components: scientific, engineering, application and methodological.

    New discoveries in the area of information processing in and by nature, especially by quantum and bio phenomena, have played an important role in the derivation of a new perception of informatics. Informatics as a technology area represents a leading and broadly oriented technology without which contemporary and future key technological products in all areas can be imagined.

    This seminar will also cover the relationship between informatics and other areas of science, especially physics, biology and mathematics.
