ICTs and Society Network”, “Science of Information Institute”, “Unified Theory of Information Research Group”, “Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science", the journal “TripleC” and his responsability in “Foundations of Information Science” as well as the active involvement in other scientific communities concerning information (like the "International Society for Biosemiotic Studies"), represent a splendid opportunity for the international projection of the group as well as for the participation in international calls for public funding.
Debates concerning information concept
We foresee weekly meetings devoted to the discussion and analysis of Wolfgang's coming books, to which all members are kindly invited. We expect to strengthen BITrum’s scientific programme within this arena in order to improve both: next proposals to international calls and an immediate project planning. If any would wish to join the debates, please, address coordination team (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Wolfgang (email@example.com).
In name of BITrum, welcome and thank you so much for your grand support, Wolfgang!
