Background

The AI Fairness Cluster is hosting a technical workshop, AIMMES’24, on AI Biases: Measurements, Mitigation, Explanation Strategies. This workshop aims to foster a technical dialogue and enhance understanding of challenges and opportunities at the intersection of AI, fairness, and bias in our evolving technological landscape.

If you would like to attend the AIMMES 2024 workshop and share your work through a short talk or a poster, you need to submit a paper first. Find out how below and join us on March 6th, 2024!

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 – CEUR.ws format);
(B) Short/Position/Discussion papers (max 6 pages + references – CEUR.ws format);

Indicative topics

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.

Call for Submissions

Submission Site https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aimmes2024

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.

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.
