Call for papers on

Exploring relationships in digitalized and automated world


We face increased influence of Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual/Augmented/Mixed Reality and Internet of Things technology on marketing. In order to stay relevant, marketers need to develop their strategic perspective, and customers need to increase their understanding of benefits and threads of digital technology.
