The third annual ACM FAT* conference brings together researchers and practitioners interested in fairness, accountability, and transparency in socio-technical systems. It builds on the success of the inaugural 2018 conference held in New York, and the 2019 conference held in Atlanta.

In this edition, our goal has been to sustain and further improve the high quality of computer science research in this domain, while simultaneously extending the focus to law and social sciences and humanities research. To this end, we have appointed dedicated selection committees and track chairs securing excellence in computer science (CS), social sciences and humanities (SSH), and legal scholarship (LAW), thus creating a rich program centered on computer science with strong and diverse cross-disciplinary components. We are also delighted to host this conference in Europe for the first time, and have done our best to reflect and emphasize issues and research in Europe on these topics.

ACM FAT* 2020 was held in Barcelona from Monday 27th through Thursday 30th in January 2020. The program schedule is available.
