The third annual ACM FAccT Conference 2022 invites applicants for the FAccT Doctoral Consortium (DC). The ACM FAccT 2022 Doctoral Consortium is open to PhD students (or others pursuing a relevant advanced degree, as well as recent grads of professional schools) doing research on fairness, accountability and transparency (or related topics) in relation to socio-technical systems. We are looking for students in computer science, philosophy, sociology, law, psychology, or any of the broad range of subjects contributing to this area. The Doctoral Consortium is a unique opportunity to engage in substantive interaction with experienced researchers and peers regarding dissertation research and career objectives.
The Doctoral Consortium will be held on June 21, 2022 (Seoul time) and will likely include presentations by PhD students, breakout meetings and mentoring tables and exercises to promote cross-disciplinary communication. Although we will include support for remote attendees, we encourage participants to attend in person if possible (conditioned on covid-19 travel policy). Note that the conference will have a pool of travel scholarship funds.
Applications will be reviewed according to the following criteria: clarity and completeness of submission package and evidence of research progress.
Submissions should be submitted as a single PDF, with the following content:
