The development of technology has the potential to make many aspects of human life easier, which makes innovation in technology very important. Information technology plays one of the most important roles in the development of Indonesia. Information technology is a general term for any technology that helps people to create, modify, store, communicate, or disseminate information. It is closely associated with the Internet, and since the 1990s, the Internet has become an important part of Indonesian life. However, there are two very important things that should be inherent in any technological innovation—the technical and the social elements. It is undeniable that the technological innovation will have implications on the social life. These implications need to be elaborated by the scientists in the field of social studies. This conference is expected to be a place for researchers, academics, and students to share their research and studies in the context of the impact of technology information on political and social dynamics.
