The proceedings from the Sixth Symposium at Royaumont in 1962 were titled Le concept d’information dans la science contemporaine (The Concept of Information in Contemporary Science) and were published three years later in Paris in 1965 by Les Éditions de Minuit.
Programming is in many-ways and by many people considered the new form of literacy. Understanding how programs work is a crucial skill for everyone in the new cultural landscape. But to learn programming is at risk of becoming a commodity that needs to be re-defined every time a new programming language is at stake. For this, a conceptual and foundational approach is required. At Middlesex, we shall use this volume and the underlying LISP/SCHEME language for first year students in Computer Science.

Information, Society & Culture, a theme of Bass Connection, was officially launched at Duke.
"Bass Connections is a new university-wide initiative launched by a $50 million gift from Anne and Robert Bass. It will provide students with greater exposure to inquiry across the disciplines, partnership with unlikely fellow thinkers, sustained mentorship in teams, and the chance to experience the intersections of the academy and the real world."
