Event description:

In a 2013 study, IBM found that 71 percent of the banking and financial firms report that the use of big data and Internet analytics is creating a competitive advantage for their organizations, a 97 percent increase in just two years. Big data and Internet analytics are especially promising and differentiating for financial service companies as data is one of arguably their most important assets in financial services. The question for many of the financial firms is how to harvest and leverage big data and Internet analytics to gain a competitive advantage. This workshop provides a forum on research and applications of Internet finance enabled by big data. We solicit research and industrial papers that present fresh innovative ideas and insights in new applications and frameworks transforming the way financial services are offered in the Internet age.

In 2013, many new ventures have been launched such as Alibaba's Yuebao, Tencent's WeChat payment, and a joint venture by the three Ma's on Internet Insurance. This workshop will foster collaboration between academia and practices. For this purpose, this work will organize a couple of panels on active topics in Internet Finance such as "Internet-enable Innovations in Financial Services".

Detailed information for this workshop can be found in the Call for Papers.

Selected papers from the Workshop will be recommended to Big Data Research, Financial Innovation and China Finance Review for special issue or fast-track review.
