    This book explores the innovations, disruptions and changes that are required to adapt in a fast-evolving landscape due to the extraordinary circumstances triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Recognized experts from around the world share their research and professional experience on how the working environment, as well as the world around them, have changed due to the pandemic.


    Chapters consider how different fields across technology and business have been affected by this new, dramatic scenario and the drastic consequences that the pandemic had on them. With diverse contributions stemming from public health, technology strategies, urban planning and sociology to sustainable management, this volume is articulated into four distinct but complementary sections of People, Process, Planet, and Prosperity influencing the post-COVID world.


    This book will be of great interest to those in the fields of computer science and information technology, as well as those studying the impact and effects that COVID-19 is having on society.
