The recent social movement of big data and artificial intelligence has resulted in a tremendous increase in the importance of data. In view of these expectations, there are the externalizations of interdisciplinary issues. Many papers about data utilization have been published, and several approaches for analyzing data have been shared widely. However, there are only a limited number of studies on the process of cross-disciplinary data exchange and collaboration and its ecosystem. Since this process encompasses various activities of different stakeholders, it is difficult to evaluate the patterns or processes quantitatively. Moreover, in the data market, there are not only big data but also small data necessary for decision making. It is essential to discuss the dynamics of such a network of heterogeneous data in different fields.
To address these gaps, we propose to hold a fourth edition of the session to discuss the processes and interactions among data, humans, and society –Cross-disciplinary Data Exchange and Collaboration (CDEC). The topics taken up at CDEC will involve practical issues such as the analytical tasks performed using data, solutions for challenging social issues, and cross-disciplinary data collaboration and its process. Our workshop will target not only cleanly formatted homogenous data, but also heterogeneous data that affect human behaviors, thoughts, and intentions across different domains. We will also focus on a discussion to obtain tacit knowledge of artificial intelligence and data mining by analysis and synthesis. In addition to these research fields, we will attempt to take a cognitive approach toward observing the processes of knowledge discovery and data exchange. It is expected that conflicts and inconsistencies may arise owing to differences in opinion when stakeholders from different knowledge domains have discussions on data-driven decision making. We believe that this special session focusing on the process of cross-disciplinary data exchange and collaboration will have great significance, not only on academia, but also on the society as a whole.
This year, we are planning to expand the scope beyond the results of data mining, and present, share, and discuss the entire process from data design to analysis by setting the theme as “System Modeling and Data Origination for Social Implementation.”
Moreover, we believe that this workshop is a natural extension of the International workshop on the Market of Data (MoDAT), which was conducted as a series at ICDM from 2013 to 2017. In the MoDAT workshops, we discussed approaches toward designing the data market, and proposed solutions leading to productive actions in businesses and sciences spanning the industrial, political, and educational sectors. In the CDEC workshop, we will also discuss the practical feasibility of these applications based on the discussions at MoDAT. We included MoDAT in the Topics of this proposal.
We call for anyone interested in the following topics of Cross-disciplinary Data Exchange and Collaboration.
Data Mining Application Areas:
Case Studies on Data Exchange and Collaboration:
Empirical And Comprehension Focused Data Mining:
Data Focused Visualization Research:
Data Focused Cognitive Research:
Market of Data

Yukio Ohsawa (PhD, Professor)
The University of Tokyo
Yukio Ohsawa is a Professor of Systems Innovation with the School of Engineering at the University of Tokyo. He received a PhD from the School of Engineering at the University of Tokyo (1995). Then, he worked at the School of Engineering Science at Osaka University (research associate, 1995-1999), Graduate School of Business Sciences at the University of Tsukuba (associate professor, 1999-2005), and moved back to the University of Tokyo. In the field of artificial intelligence, he has created a new domain Chance Discovery to discover events with significant impact on decision making. He has delivered many keynote talks about Chance Discovery in conferences such as the International Symposium on Knowledge and Systems Sciences, International Conference on Rough Sets and Fuzzy Sets, Joint Conference on Information Sciences, and Knowledge-Based Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems. Chance Discovery has been embodied as an innovators’ marketplace, a methodology for innovation that is borrowed from principles of market dynamics. His original concepts and technologies have been published as books and monographs by global publishers such as Springer Verlag and Taylor and Francis. The two most important books among these are “Chance Discovery” (2003 Springer, Eric von Hippel gave the opening) and “Innovators’ Marketplace: Using Games to Activate and Train Innovators” (2012 Springer, Larry Leifer gave the opening). He has edited special issues as a guest editor for journals mainly related to chance discovery such as Intelligent Decision Technologies (2016), Information Sciences (2009), New Generation Computing (2003), and the Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management (2002). He has also published 100 journal papers and made several presentations at conferences. He has initiated symposia and workshops on data-based approaches toward business innovation.

As part of the ICDM (International Conference on Data Mining) workshops, we successfully conducted the 1st and 2nd International Workshop on CDEC at Singapore and Beijing (2018 and 2019). Seven distinguished papers were accepted after a triple blind review process (the acceptance rate: 43%) and presented to an audience of approximately 30 participants in 2018. In 2019, 10 papers have been accepted and been presented (the acceptance rate: 48%) after a triple blind review process. Thanks to the editors of MDPI, a special issue of CDEC was issued in the Information Journal (ISSN 2078-2489) under the section “Information and Communications Technology.” In 2020, we proposed the special session on IEEE BigData2020, and 4 papers have been presented online (the acceptance rate: 40%) after a triple blind review process.
Moreover, we have had experience in initiating and conducting the MoDAT workshop at ICDM from 2013 to 2017. According to the workshop committee of ICDM 2013, MoDAT was reported to the steering committee as the best of all the 17 workshops in the conference. Moreover, MoDAT was selected as one of the nine full day workshops from among 30 proposals for ICDM 2014 according to Wei Wang and Zhi-Hua Zhou, the workshop chairs of ICDM 2014. MoDAT was included both in ICDM 2015 and ICDM 2017 as a full day workshop. Furthermore, we organized and are organizing the following workshops/sessions about data-based approaches to chance discovery and MoDAT: Chance Discovery and Data Synthesis (more than 30 international workshops and symposia, including IJCAI 2015, IJCAI 2011, ECAI 2016, ECAI 2011, ICDM 2010, ECAI2004, KES2000-2019, AAAI Spring Symposia 2001).
