Scope of workshop
The organizations and systems in our modern society become large and
complex to provide more advanced services due to the growing variety
of social demands. Such organizations and systems are efficient but
highly complex, and can cause various unexpected situations. According
to this observation, the importance of decision making and
risk management on these organizations and systems has been strongly
noticed in recent years. On the other hand, accumulation of a large amount
of data on the operations of the organizations and systems became easier
on under the introduction of information technology. These data can be used to
support decision making or risk management in the organizations and systems.
This workshop focuses on both data mining and statistical techniques
to detect and analyze the risks potentially existing in the organizations
and systems and to utilize the risk information for their better management
and decision support.
