Algorithmic predictions are increasingly used to inform, guide, justify or even replace human decision-making in many areas of society. However, there is growing evidence that algorithmic predictions are often shaped by bias and

discrimination and thus threaten to have detrimental effects on certain social groups and on social cohesion in general.

We invite researchers to present their work and discuss their ideas concerning these challenges at our workshop in Hannover. The workshop will be held in person, but depending on the development of the pandemic it may be shifted online.

Contributions from various disciplines, including epistemology, ethics, law, sociology, psychology, and computer science, are welcome. Presentations (20 minutes) may include, but are not limited to, research on the following topics:

• Conceptual issues of algorithmic bias and discrimination

• Normative tenets of dealing with algorithmic bias and discrimination

• Analyses of types of discrimination, fields of application, or kinds of implementation


Anonymized applications must be submitted as written abstracts (maximum 500 words) through easy chair

(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bad2021). The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2021. Notifications concerning participation will be issued by June 30, 2021.

The workshop is organized by the project “Bias and Discrimination in Big Data and Algorithmic Processing – BIAS” (www.bias-project.org), funded by Volkswagen Foundation.
