Program Available and Registration Open: EABH Workshop on “The Data Dilemma”

The European Association for Banking and Financial History (EABH) is sponsoring a one-day workshop at the Westin Zagreb Hotel in Zagreb, Croatia, on November 10, 2017, on "The Data Dilemma: A Risk or an Asset?" According to the organizers:
The amount of data about the finance sector is growing exponentially and storing it is becoming easier. Businesses are excited about the commercial possibilities of ‘Big Data’; academics are relishing the research potential of deep data archives and regulators are hoping for a fuller view of systemic risk and stability. Will it all turn out well though? The current reality of massive data stores is often no more than massive cost and complexity. The workshop will explore how we got here with data and where we go next. 
The program is available on the EABH website, and registration information is here. The workshop will run in parallel to the international conference "INFuture 2017: Integrating ICT in Society," meeting in Zagreb on November 8-10.
