Conference background and goals
The broader scope of this conference is presented in the conference web site under "Call for papers".
The effects of ICT on human beings come in focus in the conference but also the interaction between ICT - Individual - Society. Analyses of Interaction and Effects are both important. Changes in behaviour, perspectives, values, competencies, human and psychological aspects, feelings are all of interest. Computer Science and IT related disciplines work more and more together with various behavioural and social sciences: Cognitive effects and changes, Motivational and emotional changes, Organisational and institutional changes, Societal changes, Value changes and new lifestyles, experiences from Child psychology and Development psychology. 
In general all types of research strategies are encouraged and especially cross disciplinary and multidisciplinary studies: Case studies, broader empirical field studies, theoretical analyses, cross cultural studies, scenarios, ethnographic studies, epistemological analyses.
