Call for Papers: Special issue of AI & Law on Computational Methods for Enforcing Privacy and Fairness

Dr. Thomas F. Gordon of Fraunhofer Institute for Open Communications Systems (FOKUS) tells us that a call for papers has been issued for a special issue of the journal Artificial Intelligence and Law on the topic, “Computational Methods for Enforcing Privacy and Fairness in the Knowledge Society”.

The submission deadline is 15 April 2013.

Here is an excerpt from the call:

We invite contributions on methodologies, techniques, algorithms, and tools in support of the analysis or of the enforcement of privacy, non-discrimination, and other personal rights in ICT systems for the knowledge society. Special focus is on multi-disciplinary approaches on the following, non-exhaustive, list of topics, and that relate to Artificial Intelligence and Law:

  • Methods for enforcing data privacy and anonymity
  • Methods for data portability, and for the right to oblivion
  • Methods for data protection and law enforcement
  • Privacy by-design in intelligent systems
  • Privacy-preserving data mining
  • Privacy policies in social networks
  • Context-aware location privacy
  • Methods for unbiased data collection and processing
  • Methods for enforcing fairness in profiling and targeting
  • Methods for discrimination discovery from data
  • Statistical measures of discrimination
  • Methods for discrimination prevention in data mining
  • Computational argumentation in discrimination analysis
  • Design of (quasi-)experimental methods
  • Computational models of segregation in social networks
  • Computational models of evidential reasoning
  • Tools and systems, with case studies […]

For more details, please see the complete call.
