International Federation for Information and Communication Processing INTERSTENO

IPRS meetings and general conference programs

Location: Corvinus I.Ea. aula (groundfloor)

The world is changing at an impressive rate. ICT technologies and digi­talization are more and more part of our everyday life as well as big data and cloud computing operations. In this framework, information is disseminated very rapidly, through forms of communication which go beyond the conventional distinction between spoken and written language.

In this context where speed is crucial for surfing information and communication, people start speaking by writing and writing by speaking, with tangible effects on education and professions. On the one hand, fast-writing is all the time more crucial. Schools are even encouraged to teach pupils how to write on a PC keyboard and in some cases to abandon handwriting for didactical reasons. On the other hand, ordinary Internet users and online newspapers are tempted to be the first to report or comment on a piece of news. To do so they sometimes do not even check the source of their information and continuously run the risk of sharing misreported or even fake news.

With the intention of answering to the many questions this context poses, INTERSTENO is organizing the biennial Conference on Information and Communication Processing.
