IJITCC is dedicated to accelerating the convergence processes of IT, communications and media, based on a human-centered vision of ICT. IJITCC provides a forum for researchers and practitioners working in this area. It welcomes novel theoretical and practical interdisciplinary contributions reflecting approaches wherein individuals and ecosystems become points of convergence of data, technologies and applications for the improvement of perception, understanding and dissemination of knowledge, and for the well-being of digital life, without obstacles, every place and at any time.

  • Cyber-physical-social systems in the era of convergence
  • Human-centered information systems and decision support systems
  • Situation awareness and decision making in human-machine systems
  • Advanced services, systems and models for knowledge management in future organisations
  • Intelligent systems and converging technologies in education and work
