Call for Papers
The ICDM 2023 Workshop on Causal and Explainable Artificial Intelligence (CXAI 2023)
In conjunction with IEEE ICDM 2023, Shanghai, China, 4 Dec 2023
Paper submission deadline: 3 Sept 2023
AIM & SCOPE
With the increasingly wider adoption of machine learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in many domains in the last decade, there has been a high demand to make AI/ML models more transparent, understandable and interpretable. More specifically, there is a need to explain what the root drivers of certain outcomes are and what we can do to achieve a desirable outcome in a more transparent fashion. Addressing these problems is critical for the models to be trusted and adopted by executives and business users for real-world applications. Focused on tackling the above challenges, this CXAI workshop will provide a platform for AI/ML researchers and practitioners from various countries to share their recent research outcomes and experiences in causal inference/discovery and interpretable/explainable AI.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Structure learning and causal discovery
Causal inference and Bayesian networks
Interpretable machine learning
Prediction interpretation and justification
Responsible and trustable AI
Causal models and other methods for ML model interpretation and justification
Model visualisation and conveying decisions to end users
Applications of causal and explainable AI in the environment, agriculture, energy, engineering, education, finance, marketing, medicine, health and other domains.
Authors are invited to submit original papers with a limit of 8 pages maximum plus a possible 2 extra pages for references and appendices, in the IEEE 2-column format. All submissions will be triple-blind reviewed. More detailed information can be found in the IEEE ICDM 2023 Submission Guidelines. Accepted workshop papers will be published in the dedicated ICDMW proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society Press.
Manuscripts must be submitted electronically on the online submission system (https://www.wi-lab.com/cyberchair/2023/icdm23/scripts/submit.php?subarea=DM).
At least one author of each accepted paper must complete the ICDM 2023 conference registration and present the paper at the conference, in order for the paper to be included in the proceedings and conference program. The exact format of the conference (in-person, online, or hybrid) will be decided later and be announced on the ICDM 2023 website.
