About the Conference

With the development of data science today, the importance of information geometry in mathematical science has been recognized again. The purpose of this international conference is to exchange recent developments in information geometry and to establish its theoretical foundations in related fields. We will discuss the development of information geometry through invited lectures by leading researchers working in mathematics, machine learning, statistics, and quantum information theory, as well as short talks and poster presentations.
