Call for workshops, panels, debates, and other formats. The ACM FAT* conference has predominantly focused on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency. Its success has also attracted much critique and renewed attention to the limitations of achieving fairness in statistical and automated systems. A number of prominent studies acknowledge that addressing the greater societal problems due to the introduction of automation, machine learning algorithms and optimization systems may require more holistic approaches.

In the spirit of reflection and response, we are planning a call for contributions that invites academics and different communities of practice (including journalism, advocacy, organizing, education, art, public authorities) to propose workshops, panels, debates and other formats that will be co-located with the conference. The details of this call will be announced shortly.
