DTGS is an emerging international academic forum for the interdisciplinary Internet Studies field. The mission of the conference is to provide a collaborative platform for researchers and experts to discuss the transformative impact of digital technologies on the way we communicate, work and live.

The event is jointly organized by the ITMO University and the National Research University Higher School of Economics(St. Petersburg Campus), both being the leading universities, globally known for their research in information technologies, communication and social sciences.

"Digital Transformations & Global Society" (DTGS) is an academic forum for researchers and experts in the interdisciplinary field of the Internet Studies and Social Informatics. Each year the conference brings scholars from different countries and of various backgrounds to discuss how digital technologies transform our lives.

The conference became a successor of another significant international event – the international conference "Internet and Modern Society" (IMS), held annually in St. Petersburg since 1998. Building on this unique and long-lasting legacy, in 2016 IMS acquired a stronger international dimension under the DTGS umbrella – an Information Society Technology Week at ITMO University with the aim of attracting new international researchers and raising the quality of submitted papers.
