Greeting Speech by Rector of SUAI at Opening of International Conference “Philosophy and Culture of Information Society”

"Good morning, dear friends and colleagues!

Accept my congratulations on starting the 8th International Conference “Philosophy and Culture of Information Society”, a loved and expected event at SUAI.

When the concept of this conference was born, we knew that its topics will bring us to the future. This year this journey is beyond our expectations. Computer technologies made this online-conference possible in a very harsh period. It is technologies that helped us enlarge the number of cities and countries participating in the conference. We are happy to see this number grow. It reflects the relevance of topic we discuss. So, the conference shall happen online. This is another step made by our information society. Which changes will it bring? Technologies are not the only center of the conference, so philosophers and culturologists can feel and describe how this online-format transforms psychological and emotional experience. Still, I believe that the participants will enjoy the conference anyway as it usually happens.

A manuscript with your reports will include 8 sections this year. The participants will discuss Russian and foreign Philosophy, Psycology, Pedagogy, Political studies, Space and Logics. Also there is a cross-disciplinary section to remind us that the human knowledge is integral and its many elements often interact.

Finally, I wish success to all the participants. Let our knowledge grow wider to make us more experienced and ready to work under any world conditions and in any format. Thank you!"
