The workshop will focus on societal considerations, and their impact on the design of decision-making systems. It will explore connections between data-driven decision processes and areas such as privacy and fairness, design for social good, safety, interpretability and robustness to unforeseen events, and the interactions of decision processes with law and policy.

There will be an in-person poster session during the workshop and the organizers invite applications from students, postdocs, and junior researchers. Applications are now closed.

Registration is required to attend this workshop. Space may be limited, and you are advised to register early. To submit your name for consideration, please register and await confirmation of your acceptance before booking your travel.
