International Workshop on Risk Informatics (RI2007)
- Approach from Data Mining and Statistics -

June, 19th (Tuesday), 2007

Collocated with The 21th National Meeting of
The Japanese Society for Artificial Intelligence (JSAI2007)

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 the risk management on these organizations and systems has been strongly noticed in recent years. On the other hand, the accumulation of a large amount of data on the operation of the organizations and systems became easier on under the introduction of information technology. This data can be used to efficiently manage the risks in the organizations and systems. This workshop focuses on both the 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.

This workshop follows the Workshop on Risk Mining 2006 (RM06) (June 6,2006) more focused on data mining based risk management, and is proposed to bring together researchers who are interested in the wider areas not limited to data mining based risk management but including statistics based approach, and to have intensive discussions on various aspects on the data oriented risk management.

Potential (but not exclusive) topics include

* Data mining for risk management
* Novel statistical Approach for risk management
* Chance discovery for risk management
* Active Mining for risk management
* Exploratory data analysis for risk management
* Machine learning for risk management
* Other techniques for risk detection, analysis
   and utilization of risk information
* Applications in the fields (but not limited to) of
  - Medicine
  - Marketing
  - Security
  - Decision Support in Business
  - Social Activities
  - Human Relationships
  - Chemistry
  - Sensor data
