Data availability has increased exponentially in the last decade, paving the way for a new business environment. As such growth accelerates, a better understanding is needed of the opportunities this new phenomenon provides and of the innovation, ethical, social, privacy and security challenges it poses.

This one day conference aims to bring together academic, practitioner and public policy researchers to present and discuss current research relevant to these issues. 

While the registration is now closed, we may consider some late registrations. Please contact cbis.info@coventry.ac.uk.
