  ‘Information’ is the new paradigm reflecting the main character of modern human society as an information society. The tremendous development of information technologies of the last 20 years has dramatically changed our lifestyle through the world-wide web of the Internet and the mobile-connectivity web that have led to the creation of virtual social networks. Recent information technologies caused the digital transformation of human communications and, consequently, of the whole society. Unavoidably, challenges of the new information culture become the focus of intensive studies and a meeting point for researchers from social sciences, physics, and engineering. The aim of this section is to invite leading experts in Cybernetics, Control Science, Sociophysics, and Social sciences to the talk on the role of information and the informational issues in their theories and applications to the problems of the society.
