Shape, Form, and Structure are some of the most elusive notions within many different disciplines ranging from the natural sciences through engineering to art. Several approaches have been proposed to study the notions of shape, form and structure from different viewpoints, yet a comprehensive formal treatment of these notions is currently lacking and no real interdisciplinary perspective has been put forward.
This workshop will serve as an interdisciplinary platform for the discussion of all topics connected to shape (broadly understood): perspectives from psycho-linguistics, ontology, computer science, mathematics, aesthetics, cognitive science and beyond are welcome to contribute and participate.
