Thanks Gordana and Pedro for this interesting set of information and presentations.
Would it be possible, Pedro, that you make available the content of your presentation "Intelligence and the information flow: An evolutionary perspective"? An evolutionary perspective to information looks indeed as a natural and promising thread that deserves, I feel, more developments. You may remember Gordana the chapter addressing part of that subject "computation on information, meaning and representations. An evolutionary approach" in your 2011 book.

It was organized by Zhao Chuan (fis member, who presented in this list about the same topic last year), and was chaired by Yixin Zhong (well known in this list too). Western FIS parties who attended were Gordana, Joseph Brenner (although finally read in absentia), and myself. Chinese FIS colleagues Wu Kun, Xiaohui, Bi Lin, and others were also attending or presenting. Well, it was quite interesting an experience. Rethinking the basic ideas on intelligence, both "natural" and "artificial", in parallel to FIS and IS4SI efforts around information science looks a promising complementary strategy. A second conference will take place next year, in another Chinese city. It will be more widely publicized so to facilitate the attendance of Western parties. Best greetings from Xi'an Information Philosophy Institute, in Jiaotong University, one of the earliest and most fruitful Chinese initiatives in information studies... --Pedro PS. About meaning, what Malcolm says should be obvious: in central nervous systems meaning predates human language.
