Designing the New Cyber Civilization – Abstract Presentations & Discussions


Last autumn, Cyber Civilization Research Center circulated a call for abstracts on how we might design the new Cyber Civilization. We have received numerous outstanding abstracts across various disciplines and contributors from different regions of the world. We have selected ten abstracts that will be presented during CCRC International Conference 2022. The papers are categorized into three major themes: (1) Governance of the Cyberspace; (2) Health data with trust & (3) Architecture for trust. All the papers discuss significant issues that we should be considered in constructing the new technological and societal system architectures.

Please find the recordings and abstracts below.
