We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the 2020 ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency (FAT 2020), to be held in Barcelona, Spain on January 27–30 2020.

The third annual ACM FAT
Conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in fairness, accountability, and transparency in socio-technical systems. The previous two conferences had acceptance rates of 25% and attracted attendees from across academia, industry and public policy. FAT 2020 has 5 submission tracks reflecting its disciplinary diversity:

# Track 1: Computer Science #
Fairness by Design
Accountability by Design
Methods for algorithmic auditing, measurement, evaluation and risk assessment
Methods involving human factors and humans-in-the-loop
Methods for the assessment of explainability, transparency and interpretability

# Track 2: Law #
Data protection law and fundamental rights and freedoms
Non-discrimination law, justice and fairness

# Track 3: Social Sciences and Humanities #
Economics, politics and social justice
Philosophy and Science and Technology Studies

# Track 4: Practice and Experience #
Deployed applications, systems or software.
Algorithmic audits, evaluations, or benchmarks of real-world systems.
Experiences in governance: standardization, activism or communication.

# Track 5: Education #
Educating at the intersection of law, social sciences, humanities, and computer science
Fairness, accountability and transparency in education

We encourage submissions that help bridge between topics and disciplines in the conference, and which challenge them with new theory, evidence and perspectives.

# Key Dates #
Full paper submission - Aug 22 2019 (pre-register Aug 15)
Notification date - Oct 31 2019
Conference - Jan 27-30 2020
is timed around other relevant events, before CPDP in Brussels and before AAAI in New York.

Papers (8-10 pages) are double-blind peer reviewed and published in the conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. Author for whom a conference venue is not convenient can also opt for non-archival submission, subject to the same review process but only appearing as an abstract in the proceedings.
Please forward this call to other people or groups you think may be interested.
