This year's Cyberspace 2021 conference, co-organized by the IRTIS team, took place in November, but this time in hybrid form. Natalia Waechter, an expert on the impact of technology on young people and several members of our team, spoke at the conference.
The conference took place in Brno, at the Faculty of Law of Masaryk University, and began with a lecture by Professor Natalie Waechter from the University of Graz. In her presentation, she provided a detailed insight into the various social media that young people currently use. Among other things, Natalia is also the leader of the German team in the European Horizon project ySKILLS dealing with the digital skills of young people, on which our team also works closely. After the lecture, a panel discussion with Professor David Šmahel and Adriana Dergam took place.
The cyberspace conference focuses on cyberspace research across various disciplines, such as law, technology, informatics, psychology, new media, etc. On the second day of the conference, several parallel programs took place, focusing more closely on topics related to one of these disciplines. You can find the complete list of the conference program in the call for papers document HERE, or you can download the full conference program HERE. Several IRTIS members presented their work as part of a program on cyberspace psychology. Our members' presentations are listed below, along with the study abstracts for more detailed information on their work.
Many thanks to all the organizers of the Cyberspace conference and its participants, whether they attended online or offline. We are looking forward to the following conference, and we hope that we will all meet in person!
