Dear FIS colleague,

I have always maintained that the discussion of information theory will touch on the most authentic issues of all things in the universe, and,FIS(Foundations of Information Science) Forum is the only international arena to discuss the theoretical foundation of contemporary information science.Recently, Professor Xueshan Yan, the vice-president of The International Society for the Study of Information, was entrusted by Professor Pedro, a Spanish biologist and  vice-president of The International Society for the Study of Information, to launch a seminar on information science, which is very impressive. I will forward it now.

Best wishes.

Wang Chen

 Dear Colleagues,

FIS(Foundations of Information Science) Forum is the only international arena to discuss the theoretical foundation of contemporary information science. According to the European Directive on Data Protection, the forum has recently been adjusted and needs to be re-registered. Taking this opportunity, I am entrusted by my colleague Pedro--the list coordinator, vice-president of The International Society for the Study of Information, and an Spanish biologist--to invite you, to join our forum. Within my vision, all of you are colleagues who have profound insights into information issues. To do that, you only need to fill in your e-mail address at the following address: http://listas.unizar.es/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/fis, and set up a password. Our forum does not collect any other personal information and is free. After registration, the website will automatically form a mailing list of all the posts circulating and send them to your mailbox.

In the near future, I would like to invite the following scholars to introduce the following topics: (proposal)

1. Similarities and Differences between Computer Science and Information Science

Main Speaker: Academician Li Yanda, School of Information Science and Technology, Tsinghua University, China

2. Similarities and Differences between “Library and Information Science (Information Management)” and Information Science

Main Speaker: Professor Miguel Nunes, School of Information Management, Sun Yat-Sen University, China

3. The Relationship between Systems Science and Information Science

Main Speaker: Professor Di Zengru with his colleagues, School of Systems Science, Beijing Normal University, China

4. Can "Information" and "Meaning" be Unified into One Concept?

Main Speaker: Professor Jia Guoheng, Department of Philosophy, East China Normal University, China

5. What is Humanistic Information Science?

Main Speaker: Professor Jonathan Furner, Department of Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles, United States

6. Information Problems in Molecular Communication

Main Speaker: Professor Roman Nalewajski, Faculty of Chemistry, the Jagiellonian University, Poland

7. Is Endocrine System an Information System?

Main Speaker: Professor Feng Maozi, School of Life Sciences, East China Normal University, China

8. The Relationship between Linguistics and Information Science

Main Speaker: Professor Lü Gongli, School of Foreign Languages, Qiingdao University, China

9. A Comparative Analysis of Human Language and Cellular Language

Main Speaker: Professor Yuan Yulin, Department of Chinese Language and Literature, Peking University, China

10.Integrated Research and Education about Information Science in Universities

Main Speaker: Professor Osamu Sakura with his colleagues, Graduate School of Interdisciplinary Information Studies, University of Tokyo, Japan


The above topics and speakers are only a proposal, most of them have not yet been discussed with the parties concerned. But from my own reading experience, I think all of you have unique insights in these fields related to information science. In addition, if other researchers have important basic information science research topics willing to share with international colleagues, please contact Pedro: pcmarijuan.iacs at aragon.es or me: yxs at pku.edu.cn.

The main topic of the post is very simple: a content about 1 to 2 pages of A4, as long as the problem can be clearly stated, the purpose is to arouse people's attention and discussion on the related issues. The working language is English.

Since 1997, we have discussed the basic issues of information science for 20 years. Unfortunately, due to technical failure, only part of our posts have been retained. You can glance them at:

1997-2007: http://fis-mail.sciforum.net (Repairing……)

2014-2018: http://listas.unizar.es/pipermail/fis/

The topic we are discussing recently is "Narrative (and Information)".

We are entering the quantum century of the 21st century, but the information problem is a huge scientific debt left over from the 20th century. It is the responsibility of all information science researchers to pay off it.

Best wishes to all,

Xueshan Yan

Associate Professor of Department of Information Management, Peking University

Vice-President of The International Society for the Study of Information



























上述只是拟议中的一些题目,大部分还未与当事人协商。但就我个人的阅读经历来看,我认为前述诸位在信息科学相关领域是有独特见解的。此外,其他研究者如有重要的信息科学基础研究话题并愿与国际同行分享,请与Pedro:pcmarijuan.iacs at aragon.es,或我:yxs at pku.edu.cn联系。
