[liberationtech] Data ethics workshop: call for participation

Hi all

I am writing on behalf of the KDD Data Ethics Workshop (
http://dataethics.github.io), which I am helping organize on August 24 in
New York.

KDD (Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining) is one of the top data science
conferences and this year's theme is "Data Mining for Social Good", so the
conference itself should be interesting to many liberation tech folk. The
conference is generally well-attended by data scientists and engineers from
the tech companies that are shaping our data policies, so there is a
potential for influence that is more direct than NGO and government-focused
events.

For the data ethics workshop, we are interested in both positive and
negative potential outcomes. Formats include position papers, case studies
and extended abstracts. Full call for participation below.

I hope many of you are able to take part!

best

Rob
