In this workshop, we look forward to exploring all of the issues highlighted in the example and more:
- audiences for contestability
- goals for contestability
- designs for contestablity
- definitions of and theoritical foundations for contestablity
- and what we should consider moving foward
We encourage everyone to join us! Practioners of machine learning, ethicists, designers, professionals in domains with contestability practices (like law, credit scoring or insurance) -- one of the primary goals of the workshop is to draw together a community of interest with as many perspectives as possible.
To achieve as diverse a group as possible, participants are encouraged to submit any form of document that can suggest their current thinking on this topic: case studies, position papers, design fictions, and so on.
Submissions should be no longer than 10,000 words, excluding references. We recommend authors aim for approximately 4-6 pages in length. You may also submit previously published work, but should add an ~1000 word cover letter identifying the relevance of the work to the themes of the workshop.
Submissions are single-blind reviewed; i.e., submissions must include the author’s names and affiliation. The workshop`s organizing committee will review the submissions and accepted papers will be presented at the workshop. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register for and attend the workshop.
Email submissions directly to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Contestability Workshop Submission” on or before
September 20, 2019. Due to conflicts with the ACM CHI deadline, the submission deadline has been extended to October 4, 2019!.
