Ben Wagner: Fairness, Accountability and Transparency at FAT 2020 in Barcelona

October 23, 2019 in Announcements

Many colleagues at the Lab are interested in topics of Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. For those doing a PhD in this area, I can highly recommend the doctoral consortium of the ACM FAT 2020 conference in Barcelona:

I’ve been lucky enough to chair Track 4 on Practice and Experience and it’s already obvious that the quality of the final papers is likely to be high. Thus for those individuals interested in these topics at a doctoral level, the deadline for submission is 1 November 2019.

For everyone else, please consider attending the main conference. which will take place from Monday, January 27th through Thursday, January 30th, 2020.
