First International Workshop on “The Other Side of the Information Technology: Negative effects and misuse”
@ Eighth International Conference on Innovative Computing Technology INTECH 2018
August 15-17, Luton, UK

Computing Technology is deemed to provide welfare and progress in all walks of life and well being of the society. However, the computing technology is not free from negative impact which has been addressed in the literature. Over digitization lead to undermining the creativity and innovativeness and tend to suppress the thinking power of the people. It has been viewed that the Information Technology quite often leads to affect the productivity and innovation.

We seek the studies with firm shreds of evidence to mitigate the challenges and issues before the computing world. The studies can not merely indicate them with documentation but can provide viable solutions to overcome the issues. We solicit empirical and innovative applied research to address the problems in different perspectives. The topis are not just limited to the below listed.

  • Stress in Computing
  • Information Technology Mis-use
  • Plagiarism
  • Security breaches and techno-insecurity
  • Data hijacking
  • Information Overload
  • Multitasking
  • Technology Addiction
  • Games Addiction
