This issue is dedicated to the contains extended versions of selected papers from the 6th International Conference “Internet Science”, INSCI 2019, Perpignan, France, December 2–5, 2019.
Internet Science constitutes a very broad concept that includes the technical parts concerning protocols and connections, but also the contents and applications, and, more importantly, the people. The Internet is changing our lives, and therefore many crucial questions have arisen: How do people behave on the Internet? Are they changing their lifestyle and how? Can the Internet promote sustainability, cooperation, and collective intelligence? Can it support open democracy and policy making? How can awareness of possibilities and dangers of the Internet be promoted? What about topics like intellectual properties, privacy, reputation, and participation? What are the juridical aspect of the Internet? What about arts and humanities in general?
INSCI 2019 aimed at providing a good opportunity to bridge the academic and industrial communities in northern and southern countries in order to converge to a noble idea of the role that the Internet should play. The theme, “The Internet and Geopolitical Crossroads,” dealt with the development of practices, platforms, and communication channels to promote the integration of southern European, Mediterranean, African, and Latin American countries in a peaceful world.
