Their excellency in fields which were not properly covered before undoubtedly strengthen the pillars of the glossary.

Mark BURGIN (Mathematical theories of information and knowledge)
He received his M.A. and Ph.D. in mathematics from Moscow State University and Doctor of Science in logic and philosophy from the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He is currently a Visiting Scholar at UCLA, USA. Previously he was a Professor at the Institute of Education, Kiev; at International Solomon University, Kiev; at Kiev State University, Ukraine; and Director of the Assessment Laboratory, Research Center of Science, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. He is Chief Editor of the International Journal "Integration: Mathematical Theory and Applications", Chief Editor of the International Journal "Information", and Associative Editor of the International Journal on Computers and their Applications. He is also a chair of the IEEE SFV Computer and Communication Chapter. Dr. Burgin is doing research, has publications, and taught courses in mathematics, computer science, information sciences, artificial intelligence, logic, psychology, education, social sciences, and methodology of science. Dr. Burgin has authorized and co-authorized more than 500 papers and 17 books.

He will be the editor of General Theory of Information
Gordana DODIG-CRNKOVIC (Info-computation approach, Physics of Information
She is Associate Professor of Computing at Mälardalen University, Sweden. After finishing her PhD in Physics, she worked as a researcher at the Rudjer Boskovic Institute in Zagreb. She moved to Sweden working at ABB Atom as criticality safety analyst. In the third phase, she joined Mälardalen University, making her second PhD in Computer Science, entitled Investigations into Information Semantics and Ethics of Computing. Her research includes info-computational modeling and philosophy of computing and information. She is teaching courses in Theory of Science, Computing and Philosophy, Ethics, and Formal Languages and Automata.
She organized ECAP 2005 conference and published around hundred articles including one authored (Information and Computation Nets) and two edited books: Computation, Information, Cognition (with S. Stuart) and Information and Computation (with M. Burgin).

She has already authored and is editor of the article 

Luis Emilio BRUNI (cultural and technology studies)
He received his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and Theory of Science at the Institute of Molecular Biology, University of Copenhagen, Denmark; M.S. International and Global Relations, Universidad Central de Venezuela; B.S. Environmental Engineering, Pennsylvania State University, USA. Since 2004 he is at Aalborg University (Denmark) where he is associate professor at the Department of Architecture, Design and Media Technology, teaaching courses on multimodal perception and cognition, digital culture and theory of science. His current research covers relations between cognition, technology and culture with focus on sustainability. He has been guest lecturer in bioethics and sustainability at University of Copenhagen; researcher at the Communication Science and Artificial Intelligence Research Centre "Semeion" of Rome, Italy; especial adviser on biodiversity, bioethics and sustainable development to the Amazonian Parliament; and researcher at the Venezuelan Centre for Global and International Relations of the Universidad Central de Venezuela. He was founder member of the International Society for Biosemiotic Studies (ISBS), currently serves in its executive committee and is member of the editorial boards of the Biosemiotics Journal (Springer).

He will be the editor of symbol, bio-semiotics.

Moreover, the correction team for English has also been enriched with the incorporation of Anthony HOFFMANN from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he works on information ethics and policy. He has previously collaborate with BITrum managing BITagora, and concerning glossarium BITri, he has recently carried out a review of all English text to be publish in the first book edition.

From coordination we wish to express our most heartfelt welcome to all these valuable new contributors to the glossary. We are sure the common purpose of bringing some clarity and richness of scopes on information and related concepts and problems will now be somehow easier to achieve.
