ACM Conference on Equity and Access in Algorithms, Mechanisms, and Optimization

The 2nd ACM Conference on Equity and Access in Algorithms, Mechanisms, and Optimization (EAAMO ‘22) will take place on October 6-9, 2022, in-person, at George Mason University, and virtually, on Hopin. EAAMO ‘22 will be sponsored by ACM SIGAI and SIGecom, as well as the MacArthur Foundation and the New America Public Interest Technology University Network.

The goal of this event is to highlight work where techniques from algorithms, optimization, and mechanism design, along with insights from the social sciences and humanistic studies, can improve access to opportunity for historically underserved and disadvantaged communities. 

The conference aims to foster a multi-disciplinary community, facilitating interactions between academia, industry, and the public and voluntary sectors. The program will feature keynote presentations from researchers and practitioners as well as contributed presentations in the research and policy & practice tracks. 

We are excited to host a series of keynote speakers from a variety of fields: Marcella Alsan (Professor of Public Policy, Harvard Kennedy School), Sello Mokwena (Senior Lecturer and Head of Department, Tshwane University of Technology), Karen Smilowitz (Professor in Industrial Engineering and Management Sciences, Northwestern University).

Conference registration rates are posted on the registration website.
