## Chairmen Welcome

## Welcome to “Geometric Science of Information” 2023 Conference

On behalf of both the organizing and the scientific committees, it is our great pleasure to welcome all delegates, representatives and participants from around the world to the sixth International SEE conference on “Geometric Science of Information” (GSI’23), scheduled at the end of August 2023.

**GSI’23 benefits from scientific sponsors and financial sponsors.**

The 3-day conference is also organized in the frame of the relations set up between SEE and scientific institutions or academic laboratories such as Ecole Polytechnique, Ecole des Mines ParisTech, INRIA, CentraleSupélec, Institut Mathématique de Bordeaux, Sony Computer Science Laboratories.

The GSI conference cycle has been initiated by the Brillouin Seminar Team as soon as 2009. The GSI’23 event has been motivated in the continuity of first initiatives launched in 2013 (https://www.see.asso.fr/gsi2013) at Mines PatisTech, consolidated in 2015 (https://www.see.asso.fr/gsi2015) at Ecole Polytechnique and opened to new communities in 2017 (https://www.see.asso.fr/gsi2017) at Mines ParisTech in 2019 (https://www.see.asso.fr/gsi2019) at ENAC Toulouse and in 2023 at Paris Sorbonne. We mention that in 2011, we organized an indo-french workshop on “Matrix Information Geometry” that yielded an edited book in 2013, and in 2017, collaborate to CIRM seminar in Luminy TGSI’17 “Topoplogical & Geometrical Structures of Information” (http://forum.cs-dc.org/category/94/tgsi2017). Last GSI’21 Proceedings have been edited by SPRINGER in Lecture Notes (https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-030-80209-7 )

GSI satellites event have been organized in 2019 and 2020 as, FGSI’19 “Foundation of Geometric Science of Information” in Montpellier and Les Houches Seminar SPIGL’20 “Joint Structures and Common Foundations of Statistical Physics, Information Geometry and Inference for Learning” or MaxEnt’22.
