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, each with a separate call for papers (but same submission conditions and dates).

# Track 1: Computer Science #
# Track 2: Law #
# Track 3: Social Sciences and Humanities #
# Track 4: Practice and Experience #
# Track 5: 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 CfP 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, after 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.
