From Thu, 11/29/2018 - 00:00 to Fri, 11/30/2018 - 00:00
The theme of the conference is “Digital Place Brand Management”: Global and Local Aspects

This year, “Connect-Universum” invites researchers and practitioners from different scientific areas and professional spheres to participate in discussing the issues of developing place brands (global and local) and managing them with the help of digital and Internet technologies.

The relevance of this problem is determined by the trends of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Klaus M. Schwab), which are digitalization and globalization of economies and cultures; expanding the range of innovation  technologies that includes artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of things (IoT), and their convergence; hybridization of the ontology of the network information and communication society that blurs the boundaries between the real and the virtual (Mixed reality, MR); increasing mobility of people and capital; and an unprecedented increase in competition in all areas and at all levels.

The theme of the conference is «Digital Nomadism as a Global and Siberian Trend”» 

 “Connect-Universum 2016” invites researchers and practitioners who are interested in the phenomenon of digital nomadism as an object of philosophical evaluation and transdisciplinary research, as well as a way of living. Digital nomads are people who work, study, create, and rest remotely from any fixed location, using Internet technologies and mobile connections. Originally, such people were residents of “wireless” metropolises. Today satellite technologies allow them to live in any part of the world. Therefore, digital nomadism belongs solely to the modern network information and communication society.

The theme of the conference is «Visual Communications in New Media: Effects, Opportunities, Risks (Interdisciplinary Approach)»

The mission of the International Research and Practical Web-Conference “Connect-Universum ”:

Developing international “intellectual communicative nets” (R. Collins), new interdisciplinary project groups, and “invisible colleges” – groups of researchers and practitioners, dealing with the most current issues of social communications and new media in the modern network information-communication society.

From Tue, 05/29/2012 - 00:00 to Thu, 05/31/2012 - 00:00
The theme of the conference is ‘The Influence of New Media on Consciousness and Behavior of Youth: Interdisciplinary Approach'.

The main idea of the ‘Connect-Universum’ as an international scientific forum on the problems of social communications is providing the opportunity of the direct contact and connection. Therefore the Internet-format is the most suitable for the subject matter of such forum. ‘Connect’ is both a condition and a result of forming the modern ‘networks of intellectual communication’ (R. Collins); ‘invisible colleges’ – groups of scientists working in the new research area. Everybody can express their opinions about the object under consideration and be heard as in the information-communicative society every spot of the Earth, every city and every university can become an active Network cell, can be the initiator of communication. No matter how far the participants of the discussion are situated from each other. It is important that they have something to tell each other.
