The full simulation of highly complex classical and quantum systems is far beyond the capabilities of current computing schemes. Recent proposals aim to push the boundaries of computability with hybrid strategies based on machine learning, network theory, neuromorphic hardware, and quantum simulation. In an intimate and focused setting, this international symposium will bring together leading experts and a diverse audience to explore novel ways in which to harness the potential of such emerging computing architectures.

The symposium will be held from 19 - 21 March 2018 in Heidelberg at the International Academic Forum Heidelberg (IWH). The limited size and personal setting of the symposium will foster direct personal contact between all participants and encourage open discussions and exchange of ideas across discipline boundaries.
