2023 International Conference on Algorithms and Law

Scholars, stakeholders, and policymakers are currently debating whether the existing mechanisms for guiding algorithmic decision-making are sufficient while grappling with new challenges posed by the expanding power of algorithms. These challenges concern transparency, justice, and equal treatment. Algorithms are increasingly impacting media, economic opportunities, and educational paths.

Given these recent developments, The International Journal of Law, Ethics is pleased to announce that the 2023 International Conference on Algorithms and Law is scheduled in Geneva, Switzerland, from December 18th to 20th, 2023. The conference’s primary objective is to address the critical importance and issues surrounding algorithmic decision-making. The event will build on the ongoing discussion in this field with a focus on the legal, policy, and ethical implications of algorithmic power and its impact on society and the law.

We are thrilled to welcome submissions of technical, conceptual, and empirical papers in any field of law that analyze the use of algorithms, machine learning, automation, and other artificial intelligence tools and methods in the legal domain while also discussing their societal impact. Although we are still in the planning stage, please don’t hesitate to contact us at if you have any questions, proposals, or submissions.
