The Global Network of Interdisciplinary Internet & Society Research Centers (NoC) will host its annual public conference “Internet & Society: Emerging Topics and Research Communities”, on 27 November 2015 in Hong Kong.
Existing and potential research efforts around online expression, data privacy, the Internet of Things, digital currencies, and many other issues are only a few of the open questions that our academic community continues to investigate. Trade-offs between opportunities for innovation and the need to preserve individuals’ fundamental rights call for reflection and examination based on empirical evidence.
