9 th International Conference on Innovative Internet Community Systems

Due to the rapid evolution of web technologies and rich mobile devices, ICT support for communities is possible on next quality level. Moreover, different types of applications are using the Internet as a large distributed system. So mobile users and pervasive systems pose new technological and organizational challenges. Trying to achieve this, we challenge new research questions in a wide range of connected fields. In search of innovative solutions, multi-disciplinary collaboration among researchers and industry partners is essential. Hence, the goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers, experts, and practitioners from various areas related to novel Internet Community Systems.
