General information for participants

Welcome to Braila, ROMANIA, 2011

The development of information technology radically changes our way of living, of communicating with the others, of receiving the information. In the future, it is expected that the role of computers in our life become essential; any student will have to master this field in order to achieve easily what he wishes.
We live in a world subject to dynamic changes. The level of information and its flow on different communication channels, its impact on the individual are more and more difficult to quantify.
Filters of the informational flow, imposed by the educational system, may lead to progress when this approach is in agreement with a modern and well planned educational desideratum or may lead to disasters when it is imposed by social or political manifestations which are not focused on the development of the individual.
We speak today, at the beginning of the third millennium, looking at the young generation, of an evolution towards “homo - informaticus”. This evolution cannot be hindered by the socio-political phenomenon or by the environment, the latter being seen as an information-bearer.
Environmental policies seek to preserve a clean environment for future generations. Most of the time, the human component of what we call environment does not occupy the first place or is not seen as an essential factor. Additionally, little attention is paid to approaches centered on a clean informational environment which might have a positive impact on human nature.
The cleanliness or degradation of this environment, the control over it, may be designated as the ecology of the IT surrounding environment (ITSE).(...)
