Call for Papers

Call for Papers

Attendance at the workshop is free of charge; however, prior registration is mandatory. If you would like to share your work through a short talk or a poster, you need to submit a paper first.

We encourage the submission of original and non original contributions, investigating novel methodologies/approaches to design/implemement fair AI systems and algorithms or to tackle bias in AI. In particular, authors can submit:

(A) Regular papers (max. 12 + references – format);
(B) Short/Position/Discussion papers (max 6 pages + references - format);

Topics of Interest include but are not limited to:

Measuring Bias

    • - novel AI bias and fairness definitions, human factors in AI bias
    • - role of social sciences, law and humanities in bias definition
    • - involving vulnerable and under-represented communities in bias definition
    • - measuring and studying bias in multi-attribute and multimodal settings

    Mitigating Bias

      • - methods for exploring trade-offs across multiple notions of fairness and accuracy
      • - use of synthetic data for bias mitigation
      • - fairness-aware ranking and recommendation
      • - application-specific mitigation approaches for hiring, credit scoring, face recognition, etc.

      Submission Site

      All submitted papers will be evaluated by at least two members of the program committee, based on originality, significance, relevance and technical quality. Submissions of full research papers must be in English, in PDF format in the CEUR-WS conference format available at this link or at this link if an Overleaf template is preferred.
      Submissions should be single blinded, i.e. authors names should be included in the submissions. Submissions must be made through the EasyChair conference system prior the specified deadline (all deadlines refer to GMT). Discussion papers are extended abstracts that present your favourite recent application work (published elsewhere), position, or open problems with clear and concise formulations of current challenges.

      Important Dates
      * Paper submission deadline:: January 31st, 2024 February 20th, 2024
      * Notification to authors: February 28th, 2024

      Travel Support

      We plan to offer four travel grants for travel and accommodation (paid according to Horizon Europe rules for travel) for up to €500 each, for supporting the traveling of participants affiliated with a European university, institute, or other institution whose primary focus is research, and who have a contribution accepted at the workshop. Candidates from groups that are usually underrepresented at computer science conferences will be given priority.

      Proceedings and Post Proceedings

      All accepted papers will be published in CEUR-WS. The option of non-publication will still be possible in the case of papers already published elsewhere and submitted only for oral presentation. At least one of the authors should register and take part at the conference to make the presentation.
