It aims at addressing the problems of the information society -and the information in general- in order to: (i) achive -from the science and technology pole- a better understanding and treatment of information and its relation with other maximally relevant problems (as communication, knowledge, economic management, cooperation, etc) and (ii) translate -from the citizenship- the actual social interest regarding information issues, and at the same time providing an orientation on that to which citizens devote much of their lifes, i.e. to deal with information.
