Policy-makers in all domains are facing increasing pressures to interact with citizens more efficiently, and make better decisions in the light of data flooding in all forms, sophisticated computing technologies, and analytics methods. The hierarchical structures of governments are also being challenged as these technologies equip individuals and informal networks with the necessary tools to better participate in public decision making processes, and have a societal impact at a much faster pace than ever before. The concepts and tools from artificial intelligence, machine learning, big data analytics, Internet of Things (IoT), and now blockchain technologies are also likely to automate many services in the public sector, greatly increasing its efficiency but at the cost of potentially millions of jobs. ‘Smartification’ of people, devices, institutions, cities, and governments also brings constant, ubiquitous surveillance which, together with inference and recognition technologies, creates the potential to regulate human behaviour and may even threaten democracy. > > The third of the Data for Policy conference series highlights ‘Government by Algorithm?’ as its main theme, while also welcoming contributions from the broader Data Science and Policy discussions.

With its hot springs and excellent recreational facilities, it is also one of the most visited places in Korea. > – Haeundae Beach is probably the most famous beach in Korea. Haeundae is 1.5 km long, 30~50m wide, and spans an area of 58,400?. The white sand is rough and sticks easily to your skin. The sand of this beach is composed of sand that comes from Chuncheon Stream and shells that have been naturally eroded by the wind over time. Haeundae Beach is also famous for the various cultural events and festivals held throughout the year. > > ABOUT THE CONFERENCE CITY: > – Busan is Korea’s second largest city and the number 1 trading port. This geopolitically situated harbor city sits adjacent to the Korean Straits and Japan, bringing about an interchange of trade and tourism. This intercultural current has made Busan into the international metropolis it is today. Busan has hosted such international events as the 2002 14th Asian Games, the final match of the Korea/Japan World Cup, and since 1995 has annually hosted the Pusan International Film Festival. > – Sight-seeing in Busan (Pusan) can typically be classified into two groups: seashore and interior land sight-seeing. Seashore sightseeing includes such sights as the beach areas, islands, and Hae Ahn Park. Busan’s most charming tourist point is its beautiful sea vistas. The southeastern beach areas have amazing views of the fantastically shaped rocks and islands, which are a must see. The famous beaches of Haeundae, Gwangalli, and Songjeong are enjoyed by many. Boating, jet skies, and banana boats are just among a few of the water recreation activities visitors can take advantage of. Amnam Park, Igidae, and Haean Park offer views of nature’s masterpieces. The natural beauties of Busan can also be taken in by riding the cruise boats in the harbor. > > RELATED WEB PAGES ABOUT CONFERENCE SITE AND CITY: > – Haeundae in visitkorea: english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/SI/SI_EN_3_1_1_1.jsp?cid=264155 > – Haewundae in Busan city webpage: etour.busan.go.kr/board/list.busan?boardId=ENG_ATTRACTION&menuCd=DOM_000000202001002000&contentsSid=219 > – Busan tourism webpage: english.visitkorea.or.kr/enu/SI/SI_EN_3_6.jsp?cid=259290 > – Haeundae in wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haeundae_District > – Busan in wikipedia: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Busan > > THE CONFERENCE IS ORGANIZED UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE: > – Korea Derivatives Association, www.kafo.or.kr/eng > – Korea Exchange, eng.krx.co.kr > > Choi, Youngsoo, Ph.D. > President of Korea Derivatives Association > Department of Mathematics, Hankuk University of Foreign Studies > phone : ?82-31-330-4109, E-mail: choisy@hufs.ac.kr > > Park, Jong Won, Ph.D. > Program Chair of the APAD2017 > School of Business Administration, University of Seoul > phone: 82-2-6490-2234, E-mail: parkjw@uos.ac.kr > > FURTHER INFORMATION: For further information, contact Yoon, Sun-Joong, Ph.D. (APAD program director, Dongguk Business School, Dongguk University, phone: 82-2-2003-9923, 2017apadconference@gmail.com) > > top > > > ANNOUNCEMENTS AND JOB POSTINGS > If you wish to post a professional announcement or job listing, please contact Announcements@SSRN.com for more information. > > HOW TO UNSUBSCRIBE > You can unsubscribe from these Jobs & Announcements emails by clicking here. > > You can change any of your other eJournal subscriptions in the following ways: > Log into SSRN User Headquarters at hq.ssrn.com.
