* Technical Description*

The concepts of information society, information era, infosphere and
infostress have by now been widely accepted. But, what does it really mean
for societies, sciences, technology, education, governments, our lives? The
Information Society multiconference deals with information technologies,
which are of major importance for the development of Europe. IS 2011 will
serve as a forum for the world-wide and national community to explore
further research directions, business opportunities and governmental policies. Stated reasons require that we host a scientific meeting in the form of a multiconference, which will consist of several stand-alone independent conferences with specific themes essential for the development of the information society. The main objective is the exchange of ideas and developing visions for the future of information society. IS 2011 is a standard high-quality scientific conference covering major recent achievements. Besides, it will provide maximum exchange of ideas in discussions, and concrete proposals in final reports of each conference.

development and incorporate recent developments. Submitted papers should not
