FIS'ers -- The domain of information is like that of spilled milk (or wine)
on an empty table.

> Dear Xueshan, dear All, dear FISers,
> This is a really important question: what are the relations between
> information science and computer science?
> At least the word "information" is common two both fields.
> Also, in my opinion, Shannon information should be considered to be
> part of both fields.
> However, more funding seems available via computer science.
> Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

> > I agree with your fundraising is an urgent issue in IS4SI, but I only
> give a few lines on your point 5. You have touched the tenderest area
> around us: Is computer science an information science? If is, what is the
> relationship between it and the information science that we are pursuing
> here? If not, why?
> >
> > Higher education of information in Japan has some good cases for us.
> Tohoku University, Tokyo University, etc. have treated technical
> information and human information separately successfully. In a sense, they
> are ahead of us.
> >
> > Another question pressing us enough headache is: Is genetics an
> information science? Same: Is neuroscience an information science? The
> fundamental concept in both of these two disciplines is Information.
> Another subject in which information becomes more and more basic in biology
> is endocrinology.
> >
> > Understanding of information science as a much broader domain of study
> just is the pursuit of IS4SI, we only have the form but without the content
> of it now, what could we propagate to related colleagues? So, not only a
> big task is it, but a despairing task is it too. Beyond computer science,
> biology, physics, and chemistry, etc. are the basic characteristics of FIS,
> but this burden has been more and more beyond our ability and is becoming
> its characteristics.
