From the cover:

The aim of this volume is to present results of scientific research on how digital information should be designed and how artifacts or systems containing digital content should maximize usability. This book also explains how content can influence the nature and efficiency of digital communication.

The issue of what digital information actually is will be covered from a philosophical standpoint, a cognitive, and a technical one. The book has much to offer to academics in many disciplines, including, Science, Arts, Psychology, Education and Information and Computing Sciences.
