Digital technologies, so much more than mere ‘tools,’ seep into and shape our everyday lives in unprecedented, hence uncharted, manners. Digitalization is both an enabler and multiplier for the far-reaching transformation of private and professional lives, at individual, community, organizational, industry-wide and societal levels.  However, digital transformation also raises challenges of better or worse quality of life and work, social inclusion/exclusion, (non)discrimination, (un)employment, and civic (non)participation. This conference seeks to address these issues.
