 There’s only one month left to submit papers to the 2019 ACM Conference on
Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency (FAT*), an interdisciplinary
conference to connect social, technical and policy domains around broad
questions of fairness, accountability and transparency of computing
systems, held in Atlanta, Georgia in late January (Jan 29-31, subject to
final confirmation).

Calls are out for:

• papers (deadline: abstracts Aug 16, full papers Aug 23);
• tutorials on application, implementation, translation, and hands-on
learning (deadline: 13 Sep).

In addition, there will be a interdisciplinary doctoral symposium, with
later deadlines and specifications to be announced.

== Papers ==

The conference this year features dedicated tracks for work on or building
bridges between:

- Theory and Security
- Statistics, Machine Learning, Data Mining
- Applications (NLP, Computer Vision, Search Engines, and other Systems)
- Systems (Programming Languages, Databases)
- Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Information Visualization
- Measurement and Algorithm Audits
- Empirical Studies (Qualitative, Quantitative, Experimental, Etc.)
- Law, Policy, and Humanistic/Critical Analysis

Papers (8-10 pages, due August 23, abstract pre-registration August 16) are
double-blind peer reviewed and published in conference proceedings in the
ACM Digital Library. Authors can also opt for non-archival submission,
subject to the same review process but only appearing as an abstract in the

The inaugural conference at NYU in February 2018 had an acceptance rate of
25% and was sold-out, with 450 international attendees from across
academia, industry and public policy.

We are soliciting three types of tutorials for FAT* 2019: hands-on
tutorials, translation tutorials, and implications tutorials. Presenters
will have 45 or 90 minutes for translation and implication tutorials, and
90 or 180 minutes for hands-on tutorials to address technical and/or
policy/law aspects of FAT* issues for a broad audience. These will be held
the day before the main conference.
