The 2023 ACM Conference on Fairness, Accountability and Transparency (FAccT) invites applicants for the FAccT Doctoral Colloquium (DC). The colloquium 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 Colloquium is a unique opportunity to engage in substantive interaction with experienced researchers and peers regarding dissertation research and career objectives.

The Doctoral Colloquium will be held on June 12, 2023 and will 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. Note that the conference will have a pool of travel scholarship funds.

Applications will be reviewed according to the following criteria: clarity, completeness of submission package, and evidence of research progress.


Submissions should be submitted through easychair, including a PDF attachment with the following content:

  • A one-page thesis summary describing your progress to-date and future plans.
  • A short (maximum 2-page) CV providing your background and relevant experience (research, education, employment, links to any relevant reports or publications).
  • An optional “cover letter” can be included that provides additional context you think we should have.

You are free to use whatever formatting you prefer, as long as the summary and statement are no smaller than 11pt font with reasonable margins.
