Call For Papers

The 55th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences
Mini-track on
Fairness in Algorithmic Decision Making | HICSS-55
January 4 – 7, 2022 | Hyatt Regency Maui, Hawaii, USA

Paper Submission Deadline: June 15, 2021 | 11:59 pm HST


The minitrack addresses topics related to imposing fairness requirements and conditions in algorithmic decision making. With the introduction of regulations such as GDPR and California algorithms used for automatization of human decision-making in areas such as classification, recommendation, ranking, are subject to non discriminatory behavior.

Although algorithms are not a recent invention, they are being increasingly used in many systems to support business decision making. Such systems often rely on a large amount of data to extract knowledge for more informed decisions. Even with human intervention, the impact of the decision on people can be significant, such as access to education, employment, medical treatment etc. However, allowing algorithmic decision making tools to make or influence decisions raises ethical, legal, and technical issues. If these issues are neglected, benefits of such systems will result in discrimination, unfair practices, manipulations etc. To address and mitigate these issues one needs to design and create a mechanism or technique to achieve algorithmic fairness. Fairness can be introduced in algorithmic decision making prior to algorithm learning or application (pre-processing), during the decision making model learning (in-processing), or prior to model application (post-processing). Besides this, one must observe short-term and long-term effects of algorithm interventions and design fair decision making mechanisms.

We invite papers, which highlight any of the concerns and the topics below, with the aim to discuss problems and provide possible answers at the conference.

Topics of Interest
For all submissions in either track, topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Impact of Data Processing on Fairness in Supervised and Unsupervised Learning
* Constraint Optimization for Fairness in Algorithmic Decision Making
* Long term Fairness intervention effects
* Fair Regularization and fair adversarial learning
* Fairness in Ranking and Recommendation Systems
* Post-processing for Fairness.
* Farness Algorithmic Decision Making Pipeline interventions
* Fair Mechanism Design with multiple policy makers
* Fair Resource Allocation
* Software tools for algorithmic decision making fairness

About the HICSS Conference
Since 1968, the Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS) has been known worldwide as the longest-standing working scientific conferences in Information Technology Management. HICSS provides a highly interactive working environment for top scholars from academia and the industry from over 60 countries to exchange ideas in various areas of information, computer, and system sciences.
According to Microsoft Academic, HICSS ranks the 36th in terms of citations among 4,444 conferences in all fields worldwide. The Australian Government’s Excellence in Research project (ERA) has given HICSS an “A” rating, one of 32 Information Systems conferences so honored out of 241 (46-B and 146-C ratings). Data supplied by the Australian Research Council, December 2009.

Unique characteristics of the conference include:
* A matrix structure of tracks and minitracks that enables research on a rich mixture of cutting-edge computer-based applications and technologies.
* Three days presentations of peer-reviewed papers and discussions in a workshop setting that promotes interaction leading to revised and extended papers that are published in journals, books, and special issues as well as additional research.
* A full day of Symposia, Workshops, and Tutorials.
* Keynote addresses and distinguished lectures which explore particularly relevant topics and concepts.
* Best Paper Awards in each track which recognize superior research performance.
* HICSS is the #1 IS conference in terms of citations as recorded by Google Scholar.
* A doctoral consortium that helps participants work with senior scholars on their work-in-progress leading to journal publications.
* HICSS panels that help shape future research directions.
