In the first two decades of the 21st century, global society was faced with major changes due to the development of digital technology and the COVID-19 pandemic. Although on the one hand these changes open up new opportunities for the development of social life, on the other hand these changes also present obstacles, challenges, and overlapping disruptions. Then how is the digital technology development could answer the obstacles, challenges and disruptions both due to technological developments themselves and due to the COVID-19 pandemic? How do the contributions and collaborations of the quintuple helix stakeholders can contribute to answer this societal problem? What are appropriate efforts that can be made to reduce economic disparities and the affordability of digital technology in today’s context?

These will be the focus of FISIP UAJY iComicos 2022 that titled “Culture, Technology, and Wellbeing”. This conference is open to individuals and institutions that interested in the mentioned above issue. Hopefully this conference can contributed collaborative perspective formulation between stakeholders regarding to the obstacles, challenges and opportunities that arise due to technological developments and the COVID-19 pandemic.

International COMICOS 2022 will be held in hybrid mode on 24 – 25 November 2022
