What is it about?

New Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) change our lives. This digitalization leads to many advantages but at the same time poses challenge to all of us: constant availability as well as data protection are a rising concern. However, there is no doubt that these technologies can bring great value to our society i.e. online-meeting systems which reduce air travel or systems which allow rural producers to sell their products online.
