Registration is closed


Rapid development and everyday application of new information and communication technologies produce along with certain advantages a wide range of possible threats to human security. Traditional practices of handling issues of political management, healthcare and education transform into a new kind of digital experience, where high speed information access, delivery and processing opens a vast and yet not properly researched field of possible outcomes in short and long standing perspective.
