The theme of the readings is «Sociology in the post–global world: problems and prospects». The authors of the review briefly highlighted the most interesting and promising reports presented by a large number of speakers at working thematic sections and specially organized two round tables. In particular, the participants of the conference considered various aspects of the development of digital technologies; and their impact on modern everyday and working life of people.
