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<x-apple-data-detectors://5>, subject to final confirmation).

Calls are out for:

• papers (deadline: abstracts Aug 16<x-apple-data-detectors://6>, full papers Aug 23<x-apple-data-detectors://7>);
• tutorials on application, implementation, translation, and hands-on learning (deadline: 13 Sep<x-apple-data-detectors://8>).

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<x-apple-data-detectors://9>, abstract pre-registration August 16<x-apple-data-detectors://10>) 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 proceedings.

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.

For more details and formatting instructions, see

== Tutorials ==

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.

Tutorial submission and more information:

Please forward this call to other people or groups you think may be interested.
