Dear Gustavo and Brazilian colleagues,

Welcome to the FIS list, and congratulations for the promising Brazil 
IS4SI Chapter you are starting. It is great news to count with a 
dedicated community in an important country such as Brazil, and even 
more to realize that there is a relevant teaching effort on information 
science there. It opens the possibility of student & research exchange 
with other National Chapters (eg, China) who also have specific teaching 
programs. The perspective you open of a "continental" chapter covering 
also other Latin American countries looks a great goal. Maybe as you 
suggest it could be attempted after the realization there of a IS4SI 
(&FIS) venue --sure you can count with the support of scholars and 
researchers of this community in order to have that event in July 2020, 
and in next weeks you can check with the IS4SI structures too. 
Concerning this list, the present nucleus of the Brazil Chapter is 
invited to organize a discussion session on a favorite theme of their 
And that's it. My acknowledgement to Moises Nisenbaum, veteran FISer, 
for the important role played in the creation of this Chapter.

Best wishes to you all,
