BITrum, and glossaLAB consortium, are collaborating with the organisation of ARTIIS international conference, whose physical headquarters are in Santa Elena (Ecuador), but actually will take place online. The congress will serve, among other things, as an opportunity to complete some of the objectives of the glossaLAB project, on which we have been working for a long time and, as you know, it is - to a substantial extent - a continuation of the conceptual clarification that was forged when BITrum was established.

Of course, you are cordially invited to the congress, but besides we kindly ask you to help us in its dissemination.
The International Conference on Advanced Research in Technologies, Information, Innovation and Sustainability (ARTIIS 2021), to be held between the 25th and 27th of November 2021.

ARTIIS, is an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences, and concerns in the several perspectives of Technologies, Information, Innovation, and Sustainability.

New digital evolution and transformation trends, are enabling communication and ubiquitous computing between global citizens, industry, organizations, networked machines and physical objects, providing a promising vision of the future integrating the real world of knowledge agents and things with the virtual world of information.

The current reality and the future of computing and communications, are supported by a dynamical technological evolution in many fields, from wireless sensors, wireless sensor networks, to nanotechnology,

Due to its broad impact in many fields, it has rapidly gained global attention from academia, governments, industry and citizenship. This change in the network of agency profoundly modifies the landscape of human activity, particularly as regards knowledge acquisition and production, offering new possibilities but also challenges that need to be explored and assessed.

It is planned to publish the proceedings with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series (CCIS) with Springer (final approval pending).

Co-organisation of ICAI congress, Madrid, Nov. 7-9, in celebration of BITrum’s anniversary

It was indeed 10 years ago when we roll up our sleeves and get down to work on casting light on the general study of information. We then met around the intention of preserving the very diverse perspectives present in the study of information, with special emphasis on adequately addressing semantic and pragmatic issues and, to the extent possible, developing unified views. With that purpose, 10 years ago we were devoted to compose the first version of the glossariumBITri, while finishing that special issue of TripleC gathered under the epigraph "What is really information?". In this issue, we offered a refined version of the almost homonymous proceeding of the congress that met us in León in 2008 and which we sealed with the manifesto in which we declared our commitment.1 This manifesto is still available on the BITrum portal, as well as the glass stained window next to which we signed it, which has been a hallmark of the group, starting with its very name.
Throughout these years, the experience has been diversified at times, recovering the original pulse in others. Diversification has shown the many activities carried out within the framework of the PRIMER initiative (aimed at the promotion of interdisciplinary methodologies), such as summer courses and educational programs, whose latest proposal is currently under evaluation at the European Commission desks. Regarding the maintenance of the original pulse, there is no need to find far away, the international glossaLAB project we are currently starting provides a sound continuity to several previous projects and before all our glossariumBITri (related update).

As for the participation of the extensive group that has contributed to the development of BITrum (the adherents from the beginning and those that have been adding up) there have been stages in which we have reached all, and others in which a few (within the board) have seen forced to concentrate on taking forward the efforts that we had started and the commitments acquired along the way. This concentrated work has often prevented us, much to our regret, from maintaining the channels of communication and cooperation that would have facilitated broader participation, as we have always desired. Now, we have the opportunity to take up the pulse both through the glossaLAB project and through the congress in Madrid in which we want to celebrate the 10th anniversary of BITrum. We are very pleased to invite you to this event in which wish sharing a toast for what we have already walked and for the avenue opened in front of us which we wish walking along with you. We leave here the call for contributions (JCR indexed), which in addition to the volume of proceedings, whose deadline finishes this week, there are other publication pathways (JCR indexed), among others those foreseen for a workshop, integrated in the congress and devoted to the integration of knowledge in the line we opened 10 years ago with the glossariumBITri. Shortly we will circulate more information about it, but, from now on, write down in the agenda these dates in which we would like nothing more than counting with your participation. See you soon!

Co-creating knowledge in educational contexts: project

posted 24 Jun 2019, 09:06 by José María DÍAZ NAFRÍA   [ updated 24 Jun 2019, 09:55 ]

Closely related to the development of the glossaLAB project, in the autumn of 2018 an educational we submitted a project proposal on education innovation to the Social Council of the University of León, which was awarded in December of the same year for its development in one year. The project, which involves the participation of a part of the glossaLAB consortium, is planned in continuity with another project within the same innovation programme, equally devoted to the conceptual clarification in the general study of information during the previous year, which gathered results from several educational contexts, at the University of León (Spain), Munich University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and State University of Santa Elena Peninsula (Ecuador). In the current edition, the participations of Madrid Open University and the Isabel I University (both in Spain) are also foreseen.

The project contemplates, both in the previous project and in the current one, the contribution to the conceptual clarification system based on interdisciplinary glossaries, at the different levels of development previewed in glossaLAB project: (i) Technical level (development of the platform); (ii) theoretical level (conceptual clarification in itself); (iii) Metatheoretical level (evaluation of the results of conceptual clarification, in terms of the integration of the knowledge acquired); and (iv) Organizational level (development of the management system for the interdisciplinary activity of autonomous teams, based on the model of cyber-subsidiarity). However, levels (i) and (ii) are the most important in educational contexts.1

(1) In any case, in 2018 relevant meta-theoretical results were published, applied to the development of soft skills in educational contexts, which have contributed to the development of the knowledge integration analysis methodology proposed in the glossaLAB and projects.

Continuing the path opened by the glossariumBITri: glossaLAB project

posted 23 Jun 2019, 02:35 by José María DÍAZ NAFRÍA   [ updated 25 Jun 2019, 07:48 ]

In the summer of 2018 BITrum, together with an international consortium of European and Latin American institutions, submitted a project proposal in clear continuity with the interdisciplinary glossary that BITrum started 10 years ago. The proposal, which was approved at the beginning of 2019, was presented to a call of the Institute of Scientific Research and Technological Development of Santa Elena, Ecuador (INCYT / UPSE, Ecuador) under the title "glossaLAB: Integrating and co-creating knowledge through interdisciplinary glossaries and tools for semantic analysis and interoperability ". With a starting point at the theoretical corpus of three encyclopaedic works, among which Charles François’ prestigious encyclopaedia of systems science strand out, it also intends to make use of the methodology of analysis of the integration of knowledge achieved through interdisciplinary glossaries, which has been developed within the framework of several projects linked to glossariumBITri in recent years. Several recent publications describe both the methodology and the results achieved.1,2


glossaLAB generally aims to develop, within the two years of project lifetime, an interactive and open platform for conceptual elucidation and its application to the interdisciplinary co-creation, learning and dissemination of knowledge that supports interdisciplinary frameworks (in particular the general study of systems and information). This development involves activity at several levels: at the technical level, the development of an open platform that allows the re-compilation of valuable scattered encyclopaedic contents, in order that these are semantically interoperable, as well as tools that allow content analysis, as well as the visualization and semantic navigation. At the theoretical level, it is pursued an increase in "intensional" performance (reduction of conceptual redundancy) and the elucidation of concepts, theoretical frameworks and problems not considered in the original knowledge base. At the meta-theoretical level, the evaluation of the integration of knowledge based on diversity and the integration of the conceptual network. 

GlossaLAB gives continuity to the interactive-glossariumBITri with advanced functionalities, as an integral part of the glossariumBITri multimodal publishing system (partially developed under the glossariumBITri-UPSE project, 2017-2018), the International Encyclopaedia of Systems and Cybernetics (directed by Charles François) and the Principia Cybernetica (directed by F. Heylighen, C. Joslyn and V. Turchin). The highest level of knowledge integration corresponds to the Encyclopaedia of Systems Science and Cybernetics Online that will host the contents of the 3 mentioned resources. It will also serve as a basis for the development of other interdisciplinary glossaries as a theoretical-methodological tool for the integration of knowledge and the evaluation of the results of scientific integration (as foreseen in PRIMER initiative).


GlossaLAB’s consortium comprises 3 Ecuadorian universities (the aforementioned Santa Elena Peninsula State University, the Salesiana Polytechnic University and the Yachay-Tech University), 3 Spanish universities (Madrid Open University, that will carry out a technical coordination of the project, Universidad de León and Universidad Complutense de Madrid) and 3 research entities (BITrum-Research Group, Spain, the Institute for a Global Sustainable Information Society-GSIS of Austria, and the International Society for the Study of Information-IS4SI, Austria).

The International Society for Information Studies (IS4SI) convenes a great melting pot on information research where glossariumBITri will serve as weaving device

posted 31 May 2017, 02:51 by José María DÍAZ NAFRÍA   [ updated 1 Jun 2017, 13:52 ]

IS4SI Summit | Gothenburg (Sweden) | 2017, 12-17 June

Since its constitution, the International Society for Information Studies (IS4SI) organizes a biennial summit gathering researchers who work on information studies and related fields from all over the world. The summit associates in one single event different international conferences related by their interdisciplinary perspectives. The summit was previously held in Vienna 2015 (where BITrum-RG organized a Symposium and its General Assembly, see BITrum new 19/01/2015) and is planned to be convened at the University of California, Berkeley, in 2019. Their predecessors were the conferences held in Beijing in 2010 where the foundations of the Society were built (see BITrum update from 2010/10/20), and Moscow in 2013 (s. BITrum update 2012/09/12). IS4SI 2017 brings under the same roof four conferences previously held separately:

  • The Seventh International Conference on the Foundations of Information Science (FIS), now under the focus: Structure, Dynamics, Complexity in the Informational Nature
  • The Third International Conference on Philosophy of Information (ICPI) now focused on: Information Philosophy: The Philosophical Foundations of the Information Era
  • The Sixth Difference that Makes a Difference (DTMD) conference, now focused on: Information, Narrative and Rhetoric: Exploring Meaning in a Digitalised Society
  • The International Forum on Ecological Methodology in Information Studies (IFEIS) with a focus on The Problem of Reductionism in Information Studies

These conferences, and a number of other parallel and consecutive scientific events are assembled in IS4SI 2017 Summit under the umbrella theme DIGITALISATION FOR A SUSTAINABLE SOCIETY: Embodied, Embedded, Networked, Empowered through Information, Computation & Cognition. The summit will provide a meeting place for researchers from academia and industry, educators, societal stakeholders and others from a broad range of communities to build connections between fundamental scientific questions and the most urgent human aspects of digitalization. All these subjects are understood from an interdisciplinary informational perspective.

Besides the four aforementioned major conferences, the summit will feature:

  • 10 international recognized keynote speakers
  • 4 different symposia presenting state of the art research results, including a special doctoral symposium for PhD students working on the major themes of the submit 
  • 7 workshops to foster discussions, mutual exchanges, critical thinking and co-production of knowledge
  • 14 panels of experts open to the elucidation of relevant and oft puzzling topics
  • 2 specialized tutorials to provide interactively better acquainted with a specific topics
  • An artistic programme with music and dance related to algorithms and generative models
glossariumBITri as a tool to weave strands

The glossariumBITri, which is now going through a vigorous transformation, will be used in IS4SI Summit Gothenburg 2017 as a way to  weave the strands of the many different (and somehow scattering) matters dealt within the Summit. The glossariumBITri (gB) will aim to clarify the different concepts used in the Summit as a kind of transversal tool within the Summit. Under its new development phase, the system is intended to serve as a retrieval resource and assessment tool (using semantic network analysis) to determine the achievements in knowledge integration.

On the one hand, the glossariumBITri will provide IS4SI Summit with a tool to weave its parts, increasing the possibilities to achieve synergetic results; on the other, the summit offers the clarification project, in which BITrum Research Group has been engaged since its origins, with the possibility to make a significant leap forward. The roots of this endeavour has been established in the joint partnership established among BITrum-RG, the National University of Santa Elena (Ecuador) and the Bertalanffy Center (Vienna).

Presentation of glossariumBITri book edition and multimodal publishing system

posted 29 Aug 2016, 21:38 by José María DÍAZ NAFRÍA   [ updated 5 Sept 2017, 07:56 ]

glossariumBITri enters a new developing phase thanks to the inter-institutional cooperation among BITrum and the Ecuadorian universities of Santa Elena, Politécnica Salesiana and Yachay Tech. Hereinafter glossariumBITri integrates three components: interactive, journal and book edition.

After a long navigation, the second book edition is presented on Tuesday, August the 30th, at 18:00 (Ecuadorian time) in the auditorium of the Universidad Estatal Península de Santa Elena-UPSE (La Libertad university campus, Ecuador). The presentation also includes the endeavor, in which we are currently working to modernize the interactive system, as well as the scientific journal, now launched in virtue of the inter-institutional cooperation among BITrum, UPSE, Universidad Politécnica Salesiana and Yachay Tech.

The three components: gB-interactive, gB-journal and gB-book, are now entangled in a multimodal publishing system through which we expect to achieve the objectives of developing a fruitful and novel approach to investigating the thousand faces of information, as we started in 2008. Now we are standing on firm foundations and, since the object of study undoubtedly cross all the sciences, we hope that it will be a place where many of us meet in the arduous task of understanding the complexity of our surrounding world. To this end it is obvious we need many lights. Nevertheless, we count on the guiding thread of "information" as to weave endeavors. We hope you can join us!

BITrum signs a cooperation agreement with the universities of León and Santa Elena for the development of the glossariumBITri journal

posted 27 Jun 2015, 21:06 by GRUPO DE INVESTIGACIÓN BITRUM - FACULTAD DE EDUCACIÓN   [ updated 8 Jun 2017, 11:25 by José María DÍAZ NAFRÍA ]

Within the cooperation framework regulated by bilateral agreements with the universities of Santa Elena and León, a trilateral specific agreement has been recently signed aiming at the development and management of the scientific journal glossariumBITri (gB) that will be articulated with the interative-gB (online) and the other publication, discussion and dissemination means of BITrum’s environment. The editorial and scientific team provides an excellent basis for the development of this project and its specific interdisciplinary approach. The nature of the publication, its inherent relational components and the impact already achieved by the interactive-gB are supposed to constitute an excellent basis for quickly achieving a relevant impact.

The journal will include peer-reviewed contributions divided in the following sections:
1) original research, linked to the interactive-gB and its discussion;
2) specific reviews, be them systematic (about topics related to the study of information) or interdisciplinary (facilitating the access to the results of a discipline from others) of high impact works (books or articles) from third authors;
3) free mirrors, namely reviewed versions of high impact articles which introduce enough variations so that they can be considered as new.
4) novel research (pre-doctoral works, thesis chapters, etc);
5) Reviews of book or articles of relevant thematic interest.

Additionally it will host non-peer-reviewed contributions classified in the following categories: calls and news; interviews to outstanding researches; reports of international gatherings; comments to scientific contributions; open questions and bibliographical catalogue of shared texts.
