CADE 2022 : Competitive Advantage in the Digital Economy (CADE) 2022
Call For Papers
Returning for its eighth year, CADE will return to Venice, Italy in a blended format, allowing participants to attend physically or virtually. CADE aims to provide opportunities for academics and practitioners to share the latest research and practice on topics related to the research themes of Resilience, Sustainability, Responsibility, and Identity. Participants will be able to present in an environment where the emphasis is on discussion and development of the work presented. There are awards for best paper and best developmental paper with the latter being for ECRs and PhD students.
The conference proceedings will be published by the IET and will be available through the IET Digital Library and IEEE Xplore. The proceedings will be indexed through the major databases Scopus (Elsevier); Web of Science (Clarivate Analytics); ProQuest; NLM (US National Library of Medicine); and CrossRef.
Submissions are welcomed from academics, practitioners, and policymakers, in extended abstracts (2 pages) or full papers (6 pages) and should be prepared using the IEEE template and have the following format: Purpose, Theoretical Background (where appropriate), Findings, Discussion, Managerial Implications (if applicable) and Limitations. We are interested in submissions describing interdisciplinary research related to Resilience, Sustainability, Responsibility, and Identity. These may come from a range of disciplines, including, but not limited to, marketing, HR, operations and supply chain management, strategy, behavioural sciences, economics, information systems, computer science and cyber security. We would particularly like to encourage submissions from scholars in the wider community including anthropologists, sociologists, data scientists and those from design disciplines interested in the digital economy. We do not require empirical work, and welcome abstracts exploring conceptual ideas, and we are actively seeking work in the developmental stages of research.
Submissions should, where possible, be under the broad themes of Resilience, Sustainability, Responsibility, and Identity. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Understanding the interactions of people, technology & organisations
Digital transformation of businesses and industries
Service orientated business models e.g., digitally enhanced advanced services
Resilient cyber-physical systems
The use of new and emerging technologies (e.g., AI, blockchain & distributed ledger technologies)
Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled business models, economic models & market creation in the digital economy
Resilient and sustainable operations and supply chain management
Security, privacy, and forensic technologies in the digital economy
Design & innovation in the digital economy
Personal data: analytics and management
Identity, privacy & trust in the digital economy
Individual’s perceptions of privacy, trust & vulnerability in the digital economy
Ensuring an equitable digital economy
Ensuring a sustainable digital economy
The links between the digital economy and the circular economy
The ethics of digital identity
The future of work within the digital economy
Value opportunities in the Digital Economy
Please submit your submission through the CADE 2022 which also has further details on the conference including registration costs, network events and keynote speaker bios.
The conference will have a blended format, with participants being able to present and attend in-person or virtually to accommodate potential ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. The programme is designed around a number of general sessions and track specific sessions. Each session will last up to two hours, with three papers per session and a closing Q&A with the authors.
Presentations are synchronous. Authors are expected to submit their slides one week in advance of the conference to allow for their upload prior to the conference. Presentations are to be 20 minutes long, with all participants from each session joining in a 30-40 minute Q&A at the end of the session. We intend to identify themes amongst submissions and group them into specific sessions to foster discussion from across the presentations during the Q&A.
It is planned to run the following three special sessions, see the website:
Delivering Digitally Enhanced Advanced Services (DEAS) outside manufacturing
Blockchain futures: theoretical insights and practical applications
Overcoming digitalisation challenges in the automotive and transportation domains
