    New Ways on the Web: from Collaboration to Crime–the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

Also everything you need to know about Crime and Criminality on Internet; How they can steal 60 million in 60 seconds. And more importantly: how to protect yourself against such cybercrime. Indepth sessions will provide insight in how to better organize access to content of scholarly communication along the new standards of the 21st century. Plus a proper introduction to Blockchain; is it as promising as experts say?
