Among the major disciplines involved are Banking and Finance, Biomedicine, Computer Science, Economics, Educational Sciences, Engineering, Linguistics, Machine Learning, Marketing, Mathematics, Medical and Health Sciences, Psychology, Sociology and Statistics. Empirical research in these disciplines requires the analysis of multiple data types. Even though underlying research questions and corresponding data emerge from various areas, they often require similar structural or quantitative approaches for the analysis of data. The Association uses interdisciplinary approaches to resolve the numerous domain-specific problems of data analysis on a theoretical as well as on a practical level.
