About these proceedings


This book constitutes the proceedings of the First International ICST Conference IT Revolutions in Venice, Italy, in December 2008. It consists of 21 position papers as well as 3 NRC papers.

It embraces the Internet as driving factor, and the socio-technical and industrial eNetwork ecosystems changing our lives in the first two decades of the 21 century.

IT Revolution will account yearly on the progress made in building a critical mass for the radical shift while underlining the major issues and identifying gaps between the traditional and the new ICT-driven ways to provide strategic directions in adressing them - thus ensuring a smooth transition toward an IT-driven future.
