The 3rd FAccTRec Workshop on Responsible Recommendation at Recys 2020 is a venue for discussing problems of social responsibility in building, maintaining, evaluating, and studying recommender systems, including but not limited to issues of fairness, accountability, and transparency (FAccT). The importance of these problems are now increasing due to the empowerment of social networking technologies and the change of social environment, such as the enforcement of the EU General Data Protection Regulation and broader awareness of social issues in informaiton distribution. In this workshop, we welcome research and position papers about ethical, social, and legal issues raised by the development and the use of recommendation. The workshop will include presentations of these papers and discussion on a research agenda for socially responsible recommendation.

Call for Papers

FAccTRec stands for Fairness, Accountability and Transparency in Recommender Systems and aims to draw attention to these issues at ACM RecSys, as has been done in the machine learning community through events such as FAccT conference. There are many potential aspects of responsibility in recommendation, including (but not limited to):

  • Responsibility: what does it mean for a recommender system to be socially responsible? How can we assess the social and human impact of recommender systems?
  • Fairness: what might ‘fairness’ mean in the context of recommendation? How could a recommender be unfair, and how could we measure such unfairness?
  • Accountability: to whom, and under what standard, should a recommender system be accountable? How can or should it and its operators be held accountable? What harms should such accountability be designed to prevent?
  • Transparency: what is the value of transparency in recommendation, and how might it be achieved? How might it trade off with other important concerns?
  • Compliance: how should algorithms and especially recommendation algorithms be designed to adhere the laws or regulations, such as the EU GDPR or the IEEE EAD? How should data collection be rethought to meet those new privacy standards ? How to meet the requirements in terms of transparency and explainability of algorithmic decisions.
  • Safety: how can a recommender system distort users’ opinions? what is required to be resilient to such a distortion? What is a proper treatment of private or sensitive information when making recommendations?


FAccTRec 2020 : The 3rd FAccTRec Workshop on Responsible Recommendation will take place in Rio de Janeiro. It’s a 1 day event starting on Sep 26, 2020 (Saturday) and will be winded up on Sep 26, 2020 (Saturday).
