Information technology is an integral part of our daily lives, whether in professional, educational, or personal settings. It allows us to interact globally. IT researchers recognize the potential in developing systems that seek to integrate our current knowledge of cultural variations, as IT is well-positioned to support the work of those directly involved in promoting and disseminating culture.
The Handbook of Research on Culturally-Aware Information Technology: Perspectives and Models is the first publication of its kind to bring together research contributions from a wide range of IT disciplines, including human-computer interaction, information systems in business and leadership, computational modeling and cultural dynamics, semantic technology and cultural heritage, and e-learning and intelligent tutoring systems. The handbook provides researchers, professors, and students with an in-depth knowledge of the theoretical and technological research conducted in IT with relation to culture.
