Very little has been done to show the explicit connection between the representation and the study of information despite the obvious relation that exists between them. The purpose of the conference held at Victoria College at the University of Toronto in October 1998 - titled Semiotics and the Information Sciences - was precisely to focus attention on this pivotal nexus, especially given that we now live in a so-called information age where it is becoming increasingly more difficult to distinguish between information itself and its interpretation. The invited papers appearing in this volume, given by experts in semiotics and the information sciences, that were designed to investigate this relation by analysis, explication and illustration, contain significant implications for studying information in the future.
