PIE 2019
1st International Workshop on Processing Information Ethically
In conjunction with the International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE) 2019
June 4, 2019 Rome, IT

About the Workshop

Digital transformation comes with ethical concerns about how flexible information systems can be used and misused, posing new challenges for researchers and practitioners across the whole spectrum of Information Systems Engineering. Similarly, ethics-related aspects are becoming prominent in the data management community, where traditional processes for searching, querying, or analyzing data hardly pay any specific attention to the social problems their outcomes could bring about. These demands are broadly reflected into codes of ethics and in legally binding regulations.

The 1st International Workshop on “Processing Information Ethically” (PIE) will acknowledge the need for the design of responsible Information System with a Data Management perspective. PIE 2019 will encourage papers on the conceptual and technological approaches for dealing with ethical issues of data management and of all the activities of the whole information lifecycle, including source selection, knowledge extraction, data integration and analysis.

PIE will be co-located with the International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (www.caise19.it<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.caise19.it_&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=0chxVIXU8VYACHS7OZu10dE-BJnaNp3CQ65U2PynleU&s=fWKcDQvlBY4WxM_srBOJNbnGuqsP-l3UlsNsooAyo_Q&e=>), to be hosted in Rome, Italy.

Topics and Themes

The workshop encourages multidisciplinary submissions on, but not limited to:

* provenance and privacy
* fair source selection
* nondiscriminatory knowledge extraction
* algorithmic transparency
* ranking transparency
* query explanation
* eXplainable AI
* bias in machine learning
* results interpretability
* ethical result personalization
* privacy in data analysis
* ethical information diffusion
* diversity-aware influence propagation
* automated fact-checking
* comparative ethics benchmarks
* socially-aware metadata

Submissions will go through a single-blind review process, and evaluated on the basis of originality, relevance, quality, and technical contribution. Regular papers presenting original work are solicited. Moreover, we also welcome
* short papers containing description of results already published, or visionary discussion of new directions of research;
* data papers presenting motivations and methodology behind the creation of freely accessible datasets for the community.

Submission Guidelines

Authors can submit regular papers (up to 12 pages in length), short papers (up to 6 pages in length), and data papers (up to 6 pages in length), written in English. Papers must be submitted at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__easychair.org_conferences_-3Fconf-3Dcaise19&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=0chxVIXU8VYACHS7OZu10dE-BJnaNp3CQ65U2PynleU&s=Dvdb1oMkAwY0YwSGMDzMpDN0HK4eRN_DxV6nMsGd46Y&e=, in PDF according to the LNCS format (www.springer.com/comp/lncs/authors.html<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.springer.com_comp_lncs_authors.html&d=DwIGaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=0chxVIXU8VYACHS7OZu10dE-BJnaNp3CQ65U2PynleU&s=uq1nwF-Sy3XaLUYe7SBULh1I8em1k2HawWreipROyl0&e=>).
