Humans and Societies are becoming more and more enmeshed in networks and this has a great influence on the societal behavior of individuals and the society as a whole. It is reflected in the permanent transformation of business. We can observe fundamental changes in human interaction and society due to growing use of informational and commercial product networks. This year several areas in which considerable changes have taken place are included in the conference program: social media, the utilization of both the knowledge of Crowds and the resources offered by Cloud Computing, and the resulting eco-technical considerations.
