Information, Communication, Cognition and Computation at the ESF

Within the last few years, the European Science Foundation has proven to be a very successful incubator of cutting edge research programmes at the interface of the Humanities and the Computational sciences.

Disciplines like philosophy and linguistics naturally merge with mathematics and theoretical computer science in the creation of a truly interdisciplinary research field to gain a deeper understanding of the core issues of Information, Communication, Cognition and Computation.
