Abstract

The delegates typically have diverse backgrounds including engineering, computer science and information technology, and other areas in education and law, business and communications, and in the arts. The feedback provided by delegates was that the meeting encouraged genuine discussion on controversial topics to do with privacy and security and the evolution of computing for humancentric applications. It had been the hope of the organizers that a group of conscientious scholars, industry and government representatives and community members could come together to openly share their research outcomes, opinions and beliefs and leave the event the wiser for knowing a little more about the position of particular stakeholders. This is exactly what ISTAS10 and its delegates helped to substantiate and bring to light, which supports and confirms that the complexity in decision-making is growing as much as our propensity to innovate complex technology is increasing.
