Since its release in May 2002, Stephen Wolfram's A New Kind of
Science has generated immense interest across many areas of science
and beyond.

NKS 2003 will be the first conference devoted to the ideas and
implications of A New Kind of Science. The conference will bring
together a wide range of individuals to learn and interact, and to
get involved with NKS.


A unique series of lectures covering key facets of the basic science
and applications of NKS:

* Discovering the world of simple programs
* How to do NKS computer experiments
* How to make models with simple programs
* Implications for biology
* Towards a truly fundamental theory of physics
* Processes of perception and analysis
* The Principle of Computational Equivalence
* Extending the foundations of mathematics
* New directions for computer science
* Historical and philosophical perspectives
* The future of NKS


Specialized sessions focusing on implications and applications for:

* Computer Science
* Biological Sciences
* Social Sciences
* Physical Sciences
* Fundamental Physics
* Mathematics
* Foundations of Mathematics
* Philosophy
* Future Technology and more...

Workshops and case studies on:

* Modeling
* Computer Experimentation
* Defining NKS Problems
* NKS Explorer
* NKS-Based Education and more...

Panel discussions with experts on selected topics

Poster and demo sessions providing opportunities to showcase
NKS-based work
