TRAVEL SUPPORT

ACM FAccT is committed to ensuring that no-one is unable to present their work at the in-person conference due to resource constraints, and as such there is a substantial travel scholarship fund available to support in-person attendance.

Other support for diversity, equity and inclusion at FAccT 2022 will be announced soon.

ABOUT ACM FACCT 2022

The 2022 conference will be held both in-person and online. The in-person conference will take place in Seoul, South Korea on June 21-24, 2022 Korea Standard Time (KST). The online conference--including both live-streamed elements of the in-person conference, and online-only content--will also begin on June 21, with content and discussion available for two weeks from that date, and a library of content available subsequently.

ACM FAccT solicits work from a wide variety of disciplines, including computer science, statistics, law, social sciences, the humanities, and policy, and multidisciplinary scholarships on fairness, accountability and transparency in computational systems (broadly construed). We welcome contributions that consider dimensions beyond individual decisions, including equity and justice in systems, policy, and human rights.

We welcome submissions in the following areas:

  • Algorithm Development e.g. Fairness; Interpretable and explainable models; Causality; Data collection and curation
  • Data and Algorithm Evaluation e.g. Metrics; Audits; Evaluations, both quantitative and qualitative
  • Applications e.g. Natural Language Processing; Computer vision; Health; Information retrieval; Recommender systems; Programming languages; Databases
  • Human Factors e.g. Human-computer interaction; Humans-in-the-loop; Information visualization; UX design; Community or participatory-research design
  • Privacy and Security e.g. Formal approaches; Privacy-preserving models; Usable privacy and security
  • Law e.g. Data protection; Non-discrimination; Fair Procedures; Human Rights; Oversight mechanisms
  • Policy e.g. Organizational governance; Codes of ethics; models from historically marginalized perspectives
  • Historical and Cultural Critiques e.g. Interrogating foundational concepts; Bridging critical concepts across fields; Historical perspectives on FAccT issues
  • Philosophy e.g. Philosophical foundations of machine learning; values in scientific inquiry; social epistemology; moral, legal and political philosophy of data and AI
  • Social Sciences e.g. Algorithms and computing in organizations and institutions, including education; Social and cultural shaping of algorithmic phenomena; algorithmic impacts on social phenomena

We especially welcome contributions that incorporate perspectives and investigations on FAccT that are relevant to or grounded in the cultures, norms, laws, and/or sociopolitical systems from regions that are usually not featured prominently at FAccT, which has so far been composed mainly of North American and European scholarship.

Announcements about our call for tutorials, CRAFT, a doctoral colloquium and a number of special initiatives to follow soon!
