Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Scope

Technology evolution brought by the Internet of Things (IoT), robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI), big data analytics and mobile/social media are increasingly changing the organizational approach of “doing things”, promoting the emergence of new and innovative business models, towards enhancing customer experiences as well as to drive new efficiencies. Digital technologies offer new possibilities for organizational growth, specially by deploying an approach more focused on productivity and on value creation. It is undeniable that this rhythm of change enhanced the awareness of most business man (decision makers) about the potential effect of digital
transformation on their businesses and society, which address many challenges, mainly: driving cultural change, bridging the digital skills gap across workforce levels, changing customer expectations, data privacy and security – maximizing the return on upcoming investments. However, all these benefits come with the cost of increasing threats, especially when organization’s activity deeply rely on Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). Therefore, as more smart devices will be available in digital world due the advancement of the IoT, more and more serious security, privacy, and connectivity service provisioning and data storage challenges will arise. In developed regions, IoT has already stepped out of its infancy and it has been earmarked as the key driver of Industry revolution 4.0 as well as of the Future Internet. The use of new technologies, the increase use of the Internet and the emergence of the Internet-enabled services has promoted a growing interest in the continuously deployment of information security management, in order to ensure the reliability of the organizational information systems.
This special session provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discus practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the scope of Digital Transformation and Cybersecurity and all related issues.

Scope

This Special Session focuses on the findings and preliminary findings of two international projects: one, the InterPARES (International Research on Permanent and Authentic Records in Electronic Systems) project, supported by Canada’s Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and two, the PAPIS (Pervasive Accountability to Pervasive Information Systems) project, the second phase of the Records-Centered Digital Information Management Theory and Mechanisms (DI{R}Mtm), supported by China’s Fundamental Research Funds for the Central Universities and the Research Funds of Renmin University of China (15XNL032). The InterPARES project has been examining the impact of digital technology on digital records since the 1990s and the PAPIS project aims at responding to the increasingly pervasive technology presence with a firm stance that takes the view of the general public.

Research that falls generally into the scope of managing digital information in today’s ever changing digital environment is also very much welcomed.
