Digital Economy 2014
Imperial College Business School
South Kensington, London
3-5 December 2014

As you may be aware, the All Hands Symposium is the principal annual event of the Research Councils UK Digital Economy programme. With its aim to rapidly realise the transformational impact of digital technologies on the economy and other aspects of society the programme covers a broad range of technical fields. The symposium is unique in bringing together the UK’s most innovative research thinkers with key members of the industrial, entrepreneurial and finance communities. More information is available at:

This year’s event, DE/2014, is hosted by the Digital City Exchange project at Imperial College, at our South Kensington campus, London, and has an overarching theme of “The application of digital innovation.” The conference will explore the concepts at the heart of the global digital economy; from the cutting edge in digital economy research, technical challenges,  and user engagement, through to latest thinking on privacy and data sharing to exploring how to create value from digital data. These issues will be explored through a mixture of curated activities and open submissions, and there will be a Digital Economy Exhibition featuring posters, videos and  technical demonstrations.
