June 18-20, 2018: Venice, Italy
The 5th 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 CADE Forum enter its fifth year and it will continue to be held at the Palazzo Pesaro-Papafava, the University of Warwick’s location in Venice, Italy. Specifically, this year's Forum will focus on personal data, smart service systems and digital transformation.
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 creating synergies and 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 and workshops for further in depth discussions with other participants.
Join us at CADE2018!
We welcome academics, practitioners and policy makers to present at CADE2018, and are interested in abstracts on interdisciplinary research related to smart service systems, personal data and digital transformation. Take a look at the Call for Abstracts and submit what you'd like to present on by March 9. Best presentation awards will also be given at the end of the Forum.
For the first time this year, the CADE Forum will be running four workshops related to the personal data economy. Participants, particularly practitioners from industry, can sign up to CADE2018 and attend the workshops only without making a presentation.
- Workshop 1: Product Design in the Personal Data Economy (Led by Dr Andrius Aucinas)
- Workshop 2: Student Experience and Teaching (Led by Dr Albrecht Fritzsche)
- Workshop 3: Data-Driven Business Models (Led by Professor Irene Ng)
- Workshop 4: Behavioural Visibility in Data - Experiencing New Research Methods with Reality Mining
(Led by Professor Tatiana Bouzdine-Chameeva)
Workshop 2 will run concurrently with Workshop 3, while Workshop 1 will run concurrently with Workshop 4. See the Workshops page for further details.
CADE 2018 will feature several keynote speakers from leading academic scholars working in the domain of the digital economy; view their bios on the Keynote Speakers page.

Prizes will be presented at the end of CADE 2018 during the closing remarks.
With opportunities to engage with keynote speakers in an open panel session and to interact with emerging and established scholars from a range of disciplines, CADE enables all participants to access the latest cutting edge research, create new synergies and drive new thinking in the connected digital economy in a truly interdisciplinary forum.
- Academia - To be part of cutting-edge research. To contribute to the understanding of smart service systems, digital innovation, trust and privacy in the digital era. To set up a research agenda for further enquiry.
- Government - To advance the understanding of the digital economy. To participate in the discussion, sharing your ideas and comments based on research and practice.
- Industry - To engage with thought leaders from the interdisciplinary digital economy community and hear new research voices. To explore the practical challenges of managing the transition to digital. To gain deeper insights from other contexts and share your experiences.
