Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There are tremendous challenges that our society faces, launching hopes and concerns alike. New technologies open avenues to digitalization as well as optimism for better lives and opportunities for all of society’s participants. Concomitant environmental constrains, health issues or security threats increase fears concerning the sustainability of our approach to production, mode of consumption, style of life or way of government. New types of interactions emerge between society’s participants, shaped by new technologies.

This issue of Societies, called “Social and Technological Interactions in e-Societies”, aims to analyze the interactions that emerge in society under the pressure of rapid changes posed by new technological developments, to look at the way that the social and technological dimensions of these interactions can improve the sustainability of our society as well as unveil the impact of digital technologies on the behaviors and processes of individuals and organizations.

The articles and conceptual papers for this issue include, but are not limited to, the following topics:

  • Digitalization and new technologies of society.
  • Sustainability and resilience of e-society.
  • Governing society in the digital era.
  • Social changes in e-society: human and artificial intelligence interactions.
  • Doing business in e-society.
  • Learning in e-society.

(*Contributions have to follow one of the three categories of papers (article, conceptual paper or review) for the journal and address the topic of the Special Issue.)
