Internet Communication Management
New technologies, including management information systems, the Internet and mobile communication technologies, have transformed many aspects of modern business and marketing. It seems only natural that recent studies have begun to address the role of communication in the particular context of new technologies. With the advent of new mobile infrastructure providing higher bandwidth and constant connection to the network from virtually everywhere, the way people use communication media is predicted to radically transform. A new breed of information systems, referred to as Internet systems as well as mobile information systems have appeared to address the emerging situation.
The purpose of the initiative "Internet Communication Management" has been the publication of the discussions initiated during the First International Week ,,Internet Communication Management'' organized by the Promotion and New Media Bureau in cooperation with Faculty of Informatics and Communication at University of Economics in Katowice in February 2011.
The book covers papers written by university professors from different countries i.e., Germany, Italy, Taiwan, France, Turkey, Holland, UK, Belgium, Czech Republic and Romania.
