Hello all,

The 2021 ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency
(FAccT, formerly known as FAT*) is an interdisciplinary conference
currently soliciting work from a wide variety of disciplines, including
computer science, statistics, law, social sciences, the humanities, and
education. We invite submissions that touch on any of the topics of
fairness, accountability and transparency (broadly construed). For more
details, see https://facctconference.org/2021/cfp.html

We welcome scholarship in dialogue with fairness, accountability, and
transparency in computational systems, including critical approaches that
investigate core assumptions and propose alternative designs, practices,
and policies. We especially welcome contributions that consider dimensions
beyond individual decisions, including equity and justice in systems,
policy, and pedagogy.

Important Dates

Paper pre-registration: 30 September 2020

Paper submission: 7 October 2020

Notifications: 11 December 2020

Conference: early March 2021

All deadlines are at 11:59 PM anywhere on earth (AoE) on the given date.

Authors are required to pre-register their papers through the submission
site by submitting a tentative title and abstract and specifying their
submission area(s) by Sept 30. This process will enable the Program Chairs
to better anticipate the submission load and to make necessary adjustments
to the program committee.

Submitted papers must be 8-10 pages (including all figures and tables),
plus unlimited pages for references. This typically corresponds to about
8,000 words for the main content. Optionally, authors can upload
supplementary materials (e.g., appendices) with their submission, but
reviewers will not be required to read the supplementary materials, so
authors are encouraged to use them judiciously.

Questions? Contact the Program Co-chairs: program-chairs at facctconference.org.
And stay tuned for updates by following @facctconference on Twitter.

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

Best wishes,
