Cloud computing has opened new horizons in group work, providing the opportunity to increase quality, efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Cloud computing also offers a reduction in cost on the maintenance of servers and the updating of operative services. The safety and privacy of cloud data is a key element of the reliability of such systems.
The new virtual communities that will be born from these clouds will see the integration and confederation of the diverse models of networks that have existed: intranet, extranet, internet, etc., with the novel micro computing and multimedia mobile phone devices. Some of the main topics of discussion at the Fourth International Conference on Horizons for Information Architecture, Security and Cloud Intelligent Technology (HIASCIT 2016) include:
- Software Quality
- Online Communities
- Cyber Behaviour
