The aim of the Conference is to be the interface of researchers involved in the development and application of methods and techniques in the field of information and intelligent systems. The Conference program includes invited lectures by eminent international experts, contributed papers, poster sessions, special symposiums, workshops, roundtable discussions, hardware and software presentations and book exhibitions.

Special emphasis

The special emphasis of this year's Conference is on "Networked Society".

Internet and corresponding networked ecosystems are influencing modern society in recent years in most disruptive way forming new socioeconomic paradigm – networked society. Networked society is much more than technology or simple use of web-based services. It is about the communication of humans, organizations and institutions in a seamless way based on common protocols, standards, vocabularies and semantics. It is the foundation for new business models, education paradigms and social interactions. In each of these domains, it triggers new approaches based on real time interaction and exchange of rich content.

On personal level, networked society paradigm fosters individual empowerment, global outreach and instant communication bringing us closer to our families and friends. It also brings new challenges like privacy protection, media manipulation and fake news. Public sector is opening its data giving rise to new business models and, at the same time, contributing to transparency fostering democracy. Business models have also been changed and we have industry transformations with new market dynamics. Industry 4.0 is just one prominent example of embracing networked technologies, artificial intelligence and robotics.

At the same time, we have to preserve intellectual sharpness and free thinkers capable of influencing direction of society. We also have to protect our planet and its ecosystems which requires interdisciplinary and overarching knowledge, policies and approach. All these aspects and many more should be integrated in comprehensive research efforts. CECIIS 2021 will bring prominent keynote speakers and researchers, who will give their perspective on networked society and its impact on us as humans, social beings, our working environments, our organizational forms and the way we (will) do business.
