The conference will be held in Jerusalem on 17-18 September 2008 in parallel to the 5th European Conference on Complex Systems.

The goal of the workshop is to realize a focused meeting of a small group of people that will discuss problems of data collection, data mining, data dissemination, data sharing, and the use of data for supporting policy decisions in research projects dealing with social and economic complex systems. A special attention will be devoted to the problems related with the use of proprietary and personal data in social and economic complex system research.

The agenda is organized in a half-day workshop session (to be held on September 17th afternoon) and in a successive round table (to be held on September 18th afternoon) discussing proposals and actions useful to improve the access and use of large databases in social and economic complex system researches.
