The workshop "Evidence & Decision Making in the Law: Theoretical, Computational and Empirical Approaches" is held in conjunction with 2017...
Individual and organizational actions have social consequences that call for the implementation of recommendations of good conduct at multiple levels of granularity. For instance, government agencies identify transparency as a key value that promotes accountability, public participation, collaboration, and effectiveness. For firms, business ethics and compliance programs are becoming critical and, as the OECD reports, a growing number of firms issue voluntary codes of conduct to express commitment to values like legal compliance, accountability, privacy, and trust.
The traceability, evaluation, and communication of values and good conduct is an open challenge that can be faced with the support of intelligent systems.
On the one hand, specialized management systems evolve for helping organizations respect their commitments. On the other hand, the application of intelligent systems for sharing authority and delegating decisions introduces challenges and requirements for building systems for handling ethical issues, e.g. serving the orthogonal requirements of transparency, accountability, and privacy preservation.
We invite high‐quality submissions that develop new insights, models, formal theories, methodologies, systems, and applications where concerns on ethics and social responsibility are dealt with, based on intelligent systems.
Multiagent systems, semantic web and agreement technologies, value sensitive design are just some of the research areas, whose methods and results can fruitfully support business ethics and social responsibility. We especially welcome submissions that make significant computational advances across the following dimensions.
