  1. The International Summit for The Study of Information

Information is a fundamental natural resource, essential for humans and all living beings. Further, since raw information can be processed into new complex products, like knowledge, strategy, intelligence, etc., the significance of information is therefore even higher for human society. The study of information processes is thus a key issue for the information era.

The International Summit for The Study of Information (ISSI for short) is a biannual series of international conferences, dedicated to bringing experts worldwide together to exchange ideas, share progress, explore future trends in the Information Discipline, as well as facilitate collaborations between participants to meet new challenges. Each of the previous Summits attracted a large number of enthusiastic participants and achieved substantial success.

  1. The Sponsor and Organizer of ISSI’2023

The Summit is sponsored by the International Society for the Study of Information (IS4SI) and cooperated by the editorial offices of MDPI Journals of Information, Entropy, Mathematics and Philosophy, and also by Asia-pacific Artificial Intelligence Association (AAIA), which very well represents scientists, professors, engineers, technologists, managers, experts and students all over the world in the fields related to the study of information.

The 2023 International Summit on the Study of Information (ISSI’2023) is organized by IS4SI’s Chapter in Beijing, China and will be held Monday, August 14 – Friday, August 18, 2023 in Beijing. The Summit will consist of a series of academic fora, technical exhibits, and the organization of cooperative projects on-line, and/or off-line if allowed.

  1. Call for Contributions

All colleagues and friends interested in the study of information are welcome to submit to the Summit their abstracts of papers of not less than 2000 words. The abstracts will be peer reviewed by the Program Committees of the Summit and preferred abstracts will be selected for oral presentation.

These abstracts will be published in the Proceedings of the Summit. The best presentations will be selected for publication as the Chapters in a book in a series published by World Scientific, or recommended to the Journals of Information, Entropy, Mathematics, and Philosophy as well as others.

  1. The Theme of the ISSI’2023 Summit

Having noticed the fact that there have been greatly different demands in scientific view and methodology, which as an entirety is termed “paradigm”, respectively from the study of information discipline and from the physical discipline, “Paradigm Change in the Information Discipline”, has been selected as the theme of the ISSI’2023 Summit by the sponsor and organizer. A lecture explaining the theme will be scheduled at the opening session of the Summit.

All colleagues and friends are warmly welcome to join in the discussions on, and make contributions to, the conference theme via their paper(s).
