18 September 2017 International Conference "Communication in the XXI Century: Security Dimension" was held at Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University. During the event, scientists and practitioners from Ukraine and Poland discussed the future of communication in the XXI century.

"Today’s society is not ready for that level of communication that the information technologies provide us," stated Viktor Ogneviuk, Rector of Borys Grinchenko Kyiv University, when welcoming the participants of the International Conference “Communication in the XXI Century: Security Dimension” on 18 September 2017.

He also drew attention to the fact that the state has not yet developed appropriate communication with civil society, communication that would meet the interests both of a state and its citizens. Exactly on this issue scientific societies and universities must work on.

Tadeusz Wallas, Professor, Head of the Chair of Political Culture at the Faculty of Political Sciences and Journalism, Vice-Rector of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań determined in his report the place of Sciences about Communication in the classification of scientific disciplines. To his mind, Communication is young, but independent branch of knowledge.
