    Dear colleagues,

     

    We are excited to announce the second ACM Conference on Equity and Access in Algorithms, Mechanisms, and Optimization (EAAMO'22) that will take place in Washington D.C.* on 6-9 October 2022!  

    The conference stems from the Mechanism Design for Social Good (MD4SG) initiative, and aims to highlight work where techniques from algorithms, optimization, and mechanism design, along with insights from the social sciences and humanistic studies, can help improve equity and access to opportunity for historically disadvantaged and underserved communities. EAAMO'22 will provide an international forum for presenting research papers, problem pitches, survey and position papers, new datasets, and software demonstrations towards the goal of bridging research and practice. Read more about us on our website.

     

    We would greatly appreciate it if you could forward the information to other colleagues who may be interested in submitting proposals for participation, especially to those who are working on the use of quantitative methods to improve the wellbeing of marginalized communities. 

     

    EAAMO'22 is organized by the Mechanism Design for Social Good (MD4SG) initiative, and builds on the MD4SG technical workshop series and tutorials at conferences including ACM EC, ACM COMPASS, ACM FAccT and WINE. The conference will feature keynote talks, panels, and contributed presentations across numerous fields. In line with the MD4SG core values of bridging research and practice, the conference will bring together researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners in various government and non-government organizations, community organizations, and industry to build multi-disciplinary pipelines.

     

    Call for papers: EAAMO'22 is soliciting submissions of research papers, position and policy papers, as well as special problem- and practice-driven submissions, to be presented at the conference. Submissions can fall into one of two tracks: research track and the policy & practice track, and can be archival or non-archival. Note that archival submissions will be published in the conference proceedings and must follow ACM guidelines. Non-archival submissions will not be published with proceedings and can be already published work or work that will be published in the future in a different conference or journal. The deadline for submissions is March 24 2022, AoE. For more information regarding submissions information and topics, please visit our website.

    *We anticipate in-person but are currently monitoring the situation and will adjust accordingly.
