The Internet - that is, a specific computer networking technology - has been causing deep changes and our societies and economies. Changes that in some cases it is not rhetoric to define as revolutionary, so large and complex is their impact.
The need to study in a multidisciplinary way the Internet and its impact on society is, therefore, stronger and stronger.
For such reason in November 2006 the NEXA Center for Internet & Society was founded at the Control and Computer Engineering Department, on the basis of a multidisciplinary group born in Summer 2005 in collaboration with the Law School of the University of Torino. The NEXA Center studies the Internet, its dynamics and its impact drawing on a substantial pool of high-level technical, juridical and economical skills and in collaboration with similar centers worldwide.
