Algorithmic fairness is a rapidly growing research area, and the importance of this field is only going to increase over the next years. The discussion predominantly involves US-based researchers, but more and more researchers in Europe are getting active in this domain.
The goal of this workshop is to foster the dialogue between European researchers working on algorithmic fairness in the context of the legal and societal framework of Europe, especially in light of the EU’s attempts to promote ethical AI. While this workshop is primarily focused on researchers based in Europe, anyone with an interest in the topic is equally welcome!
The workshop is intended to promote the field by taking an interdisciplinary approach (including mathematical, philosophical, legal, psychological, sociological, and management perspectives). We want to combine conceptual and empirical scholarship with original perspectives on how to bridge the gap between current theoretical concepts and concrete applications.
The workshop is organized by a group of researchers based in Zurich and Milan who have been working on different research projects on the topic of algorithmic fairness since 2017.
