Dear AIR colleagues,

I'd appreciate it if you could spread the word!

Call for participation: Algorithmic accountability reporting track at
EIJC18 & DataHarvest Conference, Mechelen, Belgium, May 24 to 27

Do you have a great story to share of how you investigated an automated
decision making (ADM) system? Are you in the middle of doing research on
an ADM and can tell us a little about how it's going? Do you have a
great idea for probing an ADM system but can't find collaborators to do
it with? We’d love to hear your story!

At this year’s European Investigative Journalism Conference
(EIJC/DataHarvest), Journalismfund and AlgorithmWatch will host a
dedicated algorithmic accountability reporting track. For this track, we
are looking for examples of stories and ongoing research in the field of
ADM. Yours doesn't have to be the next Machine Bias sensation (although
we wouldn't mind, of course) – in fact, it could even be a failure, as
long as it's an instructive one.

We're interested to hear about all kinds of journalistic investigation
into automated systems: be it credit scoring, border control, media
curation, health technologies or recruitment systems – or something we
ourselves have never even thought of. If it's unclear what we mean by
ADM systems, have a look at our manifesto.

The EIJC/DataHarvest takes place from May 24 to 27 in Mechelen, Belgium.
A limited number of travel grants can be made available upon application.

Mail before April 1st to ms at algorithmwatch.org and
brigitte.alfter at journalismfund.eu

Thanks a lot!
