The Information Society and Sustainable Development represent dominant characteristics in the evolution of contemporary economies. They shape, in a great measure, the future of human society. Both elements have been imposed as specific paradigms in achieving a functional and highly competitive model for an economy.
This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the Information Society and Sustainable Development International Scientific Symposium (2015), which was held in Azuga, Romania, during April 24-25, 2015.
ISSD is an annual, international, scientific event organized by the Center for Studies and Economic Research (Faculty of Economic Sciences), of the Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiesti, Romania, in partnership with the Center of Fundamental and Applied Economic Studies (Faculty of Economics and Business Administration), of Constantin Brancusi University in Targu Jiu, Romania. ISSD aims to provide a solid and unique forum for disseminating recent research concerning aspects of information society and sustainable development, including additional topics related to them.
The main aim of the Symposium is to encourage and facilitate the dissemination of interdisciplinary research, from a broader perspective, from scientists, professionals, and academia, in the field of green economics development. Primarily, selected papers from the Information Society and Sustainable Development Symposium (ISSD 2015) will be considered for publication. The papers submitted and selected for this Special Issue should neither have been previously published nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere, and are subject to a very rigorous peer review process.
