With the occasion of the visiting stay of Wolfgang Hofkirchner at the University of León  (Spain) during the last quarter of 2009, BITrum project wishes to open a colloquium spinning around the feasibility of a unified approach to information. For the arena of discussion, 20 questions are posed by Hofkirchner in an outline of a Unified Theory of Information, which is also the core of the book he writes during his stay in León.

The colloquium will be developed in 7 sessions, each of them devoted to some of the following topics:

(i) What might be included in a Unified Approach? (Q1-Q3), 4/11/2009 at 17:00
(ii) Problems and methods (Q4-Q6), 11/11/2009 at 17:00
(iii) Promises for a new science (Q7-Q9), 18/11/2009 at 17:00
(iv) The appearing of life. From difference to action (Q10-Q12), 25/11/2009 at 17:00
(v) The appearing of society. From patterns to social sense (Q13-Q15), 2/12/2009 at 17:00
(vi) Communication-Cognition-Cooperation (Q16-Q18), 9/12/2009 at 17:00
(vii) Is a Sustainable Information Society feasible? (Q19-Q20), 16/12/2009 at 17:00

The colloquia will be held on Wednesdays between 17:00 and 20:00 in the pleasant atmosphere of Sierra Pambley’s House, where BITrum group was founded one year ago. In order to keep a good dynamic for discussion, the participants should read beforehand the corresponding sections of the proposed text -here available-.

Since strengthening BITrum's scientific core is also in our scope, the discussion might also address the scientific foundations and methodology of the research programme.

BITrum project kindly invites members and any other person interested in the topic to join the colloquium and also wishes to thank both Wolfgang Hoffkirchner and Sierra Pabley’s House.
