Dear FIS Colleagues,

The Third IS4SI Conference, and at the same time the Seventh of FIS, in 
Gothenburg 2017 is over. Many thanks to our colleague Gordana and the 
organization team around her for making possible the event. It was a 
very fine experience indeed. Like in Vienna 2015, there were many 
parallel tracks and many presentations and many colleagues around. 
Amidst the inevitable heterogeneity there was somehow a new sense of 
having passed some threshold, that more links had been established 
between the themes, and that a growing community of information 
scientists is emerging...

For our online discussions, we will have several themes that hopefully 
will be organized in a consistent agenda for the next course: from 
critical stances on digitalization, to narrative in science and 
elsewhere, medieval mechanical intelligence, Church-Turing Thesis, new 
social ICT engineering, biomolecular combinatorics, principles of 
information science, ecologies of knowledge, etc.

We are entering into vacation time. The list remains open for any 
comment (with the usual constraint of only two messages per week). Right 
now I am also entering Gordana's farewell message to the conference 

All the best--Pedro
