Evolution of Semantic Systems
October 5-6th, 2007
Complex systems in nature and culture use information for the development of their internal organisation and the control of their functional mechanisms. Without the storage, transmission, and processing of information, the evolution of complexity would have been impossible.
Information always has a semantic dimension, which can be described in terms of meaning, sense, reference, and function. The study of semantics must therefore play a decisive role in the analysis of complex systems.
Semantic topics are addressed by a large variety of scientific disciplines. This symposium attempts to foster a better understanding of semantic systems from an evolutionary perspective.
