CFP: AAAI/ACM 2018 Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society – New Orleans, LA


February 2-3, 2018, AAAI and ACM will host a conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.

As AI is becoming more pervasive in our life, its impact on society is more significant and concerns and issues are raised regarding aspects such as value alignment, data handling and bias, regulations, and workforce displacement. Only a multi-disciplinary and multi-stakeholder effort can find the best ways to address these concerns, including experts of various disciplines, such as ethics, philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, law, history, and politics. In order to address these issues in a scientific context, AAAI and ACM have joined forces to start a new conference, the AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.

The conference welcomes contributions on a broad set of topics, included the following:

Building ethical AI systems
Value alignment
Moral machine decision making
Trust and explanations in AI systems
Fairness and Transparency in AI systems
Ethical design and development of AI systems
AI for social good
Human-level AI
Controlling AI
Impact of AI on workforce
Societal impact of AI
AI and law

Submitted papers should adopt a scientific approach to address any questions related to the above topics. Moreover, they should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance, and its relation to prior research. All submissions must be made in the appropriate format, and within the specified length limit; details and formatting templates can be found here. We solicit papers (pdf file) of up to 6 pages + 1 page for references, submitted through the Easychair system (information available soon here).

Submission deadline: Oct. 31, 2017
