Hello from Avila where the iadis e-society conference is taking place. Keynote speaker this year is Z. Papacharissi (Prof. and head of Department of Communication, University of Illinois-Chicago); panels are on e-society, e-learning, e-government, but also information systems and management. There are some other conferences dealing with an “e” or mobile component taking place in the same Hotel (e.g. on mobile learning, but I didn’t overrun ).
The introduction focused on the increase of the “e”-component in society and the skill levels of users. Due to the increasing importance of e-skills, the Digital Divide might become even bigger. The digital gap is one of the subtopics of the conference.
