New Frontiers in Digital Convergence2019-03-11
Digital convergence is what enables individuals interact, communicate, collaborate and share information in many new and different ways. Yet, it has tended to focus on the ability to combine technical components and features such as voice, texts, video, pictures, broadcasts, presentation, streaming media, global connectivity and personalized services. Its new frontier—yet to be fully imagined—the capacity to blur socio-technical boundaries, such as those between the real and online world, producers and consumers, humans and machines, inter- and intra-firms, as well as between develop and emerging economies. This conference theme reflects the desire to strengthen and build consensus in existing research streams, while also taking on theoretical and methodological challenges while exploring emerging convergence opportunities.
