Competitive Advantage in the Digital Economy Forum (CADE 2018)
Venice, italy

June 18-20, 2018: Venice, Italy

The 5th Competitive Advantage in the Digital Economy (CADE) Forum is an exclusive 3-day event, bringing together academics and practitioners to discuss the challenges of the digital economy and present the latest cutting edge research.

Specifically, this year the Forum will focus on personal data, smart service systems and digital transformation.
This year will see CADE 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.

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.

The core objective of CADE 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.
