Crowdfinance 2014
Event  Oct 16 · Thomson Reuters Conference Center, New York City

A surge of financial innovation, guided by shifting trends in communications, advancements in technology and a new regulatory landscape, has triggered sweeping changes across the entire financial services sector. Today’s global equity and debt markets are being redefined through a growing movement known as crowdfinance where capital is derived by the pooling of monies from a large crowd of individual investors as opposed to big institutions and government entities.

As the flow of capital becomes increasingly more democratized through rising asset classes such as peer-to-peer and peer-to-business lending as well as equity-crowdfunding, a floodgate of opportunities is opening for investment bankers, financial advisors, fund managers, asset allocators, family offices, financial consultants and investors of all sizes.

Join us in NYC on October 16, 2014 for Wall Street’s second annual Crowdfinance Conference where financial veterans and industry leaders will provide participants with the resources necessary to capitalize in a financial services industry undergoing rapid transformation.

International workshop on crowdsourcing and service management (CROWDSERV 2014)
Event  Nov 3 · Paris

CrowdServ Workshop @ ICSOC'14



Call for papers

CrowdServ: International Workshop on Crowdsourcing and Service Management

(co-located with the International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing, ICSOC'14)

https://sites.google.com/site/crowdserv14/
Paris, November, 3-6, 2014

Background and Objectives

Recently, crowdsourcing has been widely adopted in academia and industry alike, as a new paradigm for enlisting members of the general public to perform tasks that cannot be performed correctly by machines, and/or are traditionally undertaken by dedicated employees. Typical applications are in data collection, classification and/or enrichment. Crowdsourcing is often subdividing tedious work into small work units, a.k.a. micro-tasks. It combines the efforts of numerous self-identified volunteers or part-time workers, where each contributor of their own initiative adds a small portion to the greater result.

The objective of the first edition of CrowdServ which will be co-located with the International Conference on Service Oriented Computing (ICSOC) at Paris Dauphine University is to bring together researchers and practitioners from the service oriented computing arena to discuss two fundamental issues:


  • how crowdsourcing can be leveraged to support the efficient and effective management and integration of Sservices, and

  • how crowd and automatic services can be integrated and intertwined to obtain optimal results

    WORLD USABILITY DAY IS NOVEMBER 13, 2014!

    2014 IS THE YEAR OF ENGAGEMENT.


    User Experience is all about engagement. Technology, products and services are usable when they engage people. At work we strive to engage with those around us—whether they’re users, colleagues, or stakeholders. It means getting people on board with an idea, earning trust, and working toward mutual goals. We all know how challenging that can be.

    This is the year to think out of the box. How can you engage people to use technology products and services? What kind of design thinking needs to be incorporated, to keep people engaged? How can you engage those outside our field, to understand the importance of a good user experience? Can we engage people to help changes those things that are not working well?
