1st International Workshop on Cross‐Domain Data Analysis and Computation for Digital Ecosystems (InC2Eco'19)

Leipzig, Germany, 1 - 4 September, 2019

The progress in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) builds a strong basis to realize cross‐domain data computation approaches. However, the data flow, coming from local sensors up to satellite remote sensing, business processes, enquiries, social networks and other manifold sources is extremely complex and dynamic. Therefore, sufficient data conditioning as well as analysis methods and corresponding ICT infrastructures are crucial for the extraction and handling of the information embedded in the data. Especially the development and implementation of efficient workflows for the integration of heterogeneous data types across various stakeholders presents a big challenge in the development of data‐driven smart services. New paradigms are needed for empowering science, society and business to understand and design the interaction of systems and processes on different spatial and temporal scales. The idea of the workshop enables an interdisciplinary discussion of challenges and potential solutions in the new world of cross‐domain data integration and information extraction (e.g. energy, health, environment, economy). We invite contributions presenting challenges, solutions, cases studies, and best practices dealing with ecosystem management, big data and workflow modeling. Competencies from the field of information systems, data science, environmental science, computer science, mathematics, medicine, energy and business are required to develop new promising ideas that contribute to the investigation and extraction of information from cross‐domain data.

This special session is a joint event of WIG2, the Scientific Institute for Health Economics and Health Services Research, the Institute for Information Systems of the University of Leipzig and the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research - UFZ.


The topics of interest therefore include but are not limited to:

  • Ecosystem design and management for cross‐domain data exploitation
  • Cross‐domain maturity in businesses of different sizes and industry sector
  • Case studies investigating challenges and potentials of cross domain analytical
  • Efficient data management approaches along the chain of information
  • Fusion of data, methods and results
  • Data quality assurance
  • IT‐infrastructures and -architectures
  • From data to variable and from variable to indicator workflows for smart services
  • Best practices to improve interoperability
  • Dealing with privacy and data ownership
