How to deal with misinformation? The Blockchain technology and the Peer-to-Peer communication are allied to address the challenge of
information verification in social media under the implementation of a decentralized architecture of the EUNOMIA project.
EUNOMIA’s team latest publication on Cutter Business Technology Journal is trying to provide answers on how technology can be used to support our research for trustful information. Can we trust a stranger? So many posts, who can we trust?
CONSERT (Computer Networks & Services Research Laboratory) of the University of West Attica, and ATHENA (Agile Technologies for High-performance Electromagnetic Novel Applications) of Georgia Institute of Technology, signed an MoA in May 2020.
March/April issue of IEEE IT Pro magazine is dedicated to the fight against Digital Deception: Cyber Fraud and Online Misinformation. At a time where the role of internet in our lives has been upgraded, the fight against misinformation and fraud is becoming more important.

On the occasion of the first birthday of the Lab in April 2020, we are releasing, through the App Store, our first application. Τhis app can be used for people not familiar with the use of technology, for sending a distress signal to a familiar person without the need of using their phone, during common difficult situations.

New Technologies are claimed to be a very significant educational tool. The educational process becomes more pleasant and accessible for the students using them. In recent years, a very innovative and perpetually emerging technology,known as “Augmented Reality”, has made its steps vivid in the educational domain. This particular article is based on a case study of a group of Primary School students in Greece, aiming at creating an Augmented Reality book, enriched with an English digital story.
Recognizing the importance of the corresponding potential benefits to teaching and learning, this special issue of IT Professional is seeking submissions on the way information and communication technologies (ICT) can be used for supporting the next generation of education, and how education on emerging ICT can be offered in a connected, multicultural, and multi-dimensional world.
