1  Zong-Rong Li, Jun You, Ai-Jing Tian

Abstract: "Towards a new science of information", put forward by Wolfgang Hofkirchner, is the theme of Fourth International Conference on the Foundations of Information Science in Beijing (FIS 2010), which is a new aim for global information scientists. This paper describes main features of traditional information science and advances a framework of new information science: "1+4+3", in which "1" means theoretical informatics, "4" stands for communication theory, cybernetics, computer science, and robotics, and "3" indicates natural informatics, social informatics, and humanities informatics. The "1", "4", and "3" locate at three levels respectively: theoretical informatics, tool informatics, and domain informatics.
