Driven by the digitalization of almost any sphere of personal life and business, data has become humankind’s most essential and most valuable resource. That has been recognized by global and now data-driven technology companies such as Apple, Google, and Amazon and by governing organizations like the European Union. Contrary to physical resources, data do not perish when shared, introducing a paradigm shift in inter-organizational cooperation. For example, companies can share data on customers, machines, and processes without the need to empty a data repository to optimize more efficiently and build new products and services. However, to be able to utilize this data in a secure, fair, and, above all, value-creating manner, it is necessary to establish shared data spaces and -platforms. This track focuses specifically on the critical role of data and co-creation in the design, emergence, and adoption of data ecosystems from both an agnostic and domain-specific perspective. We particularly welcome submissions in the context of ecosystem design and development, including new design methodologies and tools as well as rather focused topics, such as data-sharing and sustainability. Since research on data ecosystems is conducted by scholars beyond disciplinary boundaries, such as data science, management science, or database systems, there is a need to establish common grounds and advance this stream of research. In accordance with that, this track is intended to bring together and foster discussions among scholars and practitioners alike who work on the various aspects of data-driven ecosystems.
