Prof Mireille Hildebrandt is co-chairing the conference.

Postdoc Laurence Diver, member of the COHUBICOL team, takes part in a CRAFT session on 'When Not to Design, Build, and Deploy', discussing the relevant practice and politics.

Gianclaudio Malgieri participates with two papers: on 'Multi-layered explanations from algorithmic impact assessments in the GDPR' and 'The concept of fairness in the GDPR: a linguistic and contextual interpretation'.
