Competitive Advantage in the Digital Economy Forum (CADE 2019)

Venice, italy

May 20-22, 2019: Venice, Italy


The 6th Competitive Advantage in the Digital Economy (CADE) Forum is an exclusive three-day event, bringing together academics and practitioners to discuss the challenges of the digital economy and present the latest cutting edge research.

This year will see the CADE Forum enter its sixth year, and it will be held at the Palazzo Pesaro-Papafava, the University of Warwick’s location in Venice, Italy. Specifically, this year's Forum focuses on Smart Service Systems, Personal Data and Cyber Security.

CADE's core objective is to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations and to continue building a platform for the development of a common language for digital economy research. The Forum has already built a reputation for creating new synergies between research groups both at Warwick and other institutions, and emphasis will continue to be placed on this as well as developing collaborative opportunities between participants at CADE.

At CADE, emphasis is placed on discussion and collaboration, with plenty of time allocated to both your presentation, the subsequent discussion and additional time between parallel sessions for further in depth discussions with other participants.
