The theme of this year’s conference is ResilIT: the impact of IT in preservation and recuperation of our society. During the past decennia humanity has made huge advancements and is slowly moving towards what researchers have dubbed “Society 4.0”. However, how do we keep this society intact and how can we recover from disruptive events?
With an increase in population size and complex IT systems, the state of our society is becoming increasingly fragile. This has created the important but difficult task of maintaining the environment we have created. The congress will investigate different areas of this problem including disaster management, cyber threat management and in gneral at Society 4.0. With varying talks, the aim of ResilIT is to inspire visitors to rethink how fragile their position in the world is and how IT can be used to improve the safety of our society.
