I am sure this conference will provide a rare confluence of two important streams: academic research on the sociological implications of the digital in contemporary times, and the relevance of this research for next generation business opportunities. Engaging with the issues of the digital economy likewise can contribute to our understanding of the digital life writ large, and this conference will be a platform for such interactions.”

Conference chair Prof. Sreekumar said, “The conference brings together scholars and practitioners from different parts of the world to reflect on the promises and pitfalls of the digital age with an emphasis on its future takes. We believe that it will contribute to deepening our existing understanding of the digital age and also lay the groundwork for analyzing future possibilities and limitations. What makes the conference attractive is the diversity of perspectives and voices that it will be showcasing.”

Topics of discussions will also revolve around possibility of various partners collaborating to create and distribute digital content, so as to bring multiple perspectives to the table. Specifically, the role the industry can play in contributing to the economic, social, cultural and political discourses related to these technologies will be debated in detail.
