The 25th IEEE Symposium on Computers and
Communications (ISCC) 2020

Rennes, France, 7-10 July 2020:


Welcome to the 25th IEEE Symposium on Computers and
Communications (https://iscc2020.live-website.com/home, ISCC).
The first IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC) was held
in 1995 in response to the growing interaction between the fields of 
computers and communications.

ISCC takes place annually, usually in the Mediterranean region, in
locations such as Egypt, Greece, France, Tunisia, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, 
Italy, and Brazil. In 2020, the Symposium is going to happen in Rennes, 

ISCC sessions will include presentations on new research results and

Papers describing original work are invited in any of the computer and
communications areas that the Call for Papers considers. Accepted papers 
will be included in the ISCC 2020 Conference Proceedings, which will be 
subject to independent peer-review procedures for quality, and may be 
eligible for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore(r) Digital Library. Merit, 
relevance, and originality will guide paper acceptance. Best Paper Award 
and Best Student Paper Awards will be presented.

Recounting Algorithms: A Workshop on Critical Algorithm Studies in the Library
University of Toronto Mississauga Library
May 7-8, 2020

Call for Proposals
How can libraries and archives best contribute to emerging critical discourses
around algorithms, machine learning, and artificial intelligence? Recounting
Algorithms is a two-day workshop, supported by the Council on Library and
Information Resources and hosted by the University of Toronto Mississauga
Library, that aims to enrich the intersections of critical algorithm studies and
academic librarianship.

Efforts to historicize, culturally situate, and foreground algorithmic systems
as manifestations of bias and power have flourished recently. Work in this area
has contributed important insights into the often oppressive operational
conditions of systems used to automate tasks such as hiring, criminal risk
assessment, supply chain management, web page ranking, and surveillance. The
robustness of this growing field of inquiry is demonstrated in the varied
institutional backgrounds of those who have contributed to it—they include
journalists, artists, advocates, and academic researchers from across the
disciplinary spectrum.

Librarians and archivists are beginning to incorporate aspects of this critical
discourse through projects that advance algorithmic literacy and initiatives,
like Information Maintainers, that emphasize the intersection of information
technology, data governance, and social justice. Relatedly, initiatives such as
Emulation as a Service and Collections as Data suggest new services and
infrastructures that might facilitate analysis of algorithmic systems.

We invite proposals for pedagogical resources, creative projects, and library
services that explore how libraries can support and build on investigations of
algorithmic systems (including, machine learning and AI) and their enabling
social conditions. While proposals should be oriented toward the library as a
context for sustaining and supporting instruction and critical inquiry, we
encourage submissions from non-librarians, particularly from educators,
researchers, graduate students, artists, journalists and advocates. Potential
themes include but are not limited to:

  *   Projects to collect, preserve, and curate materials relevant to the study
of algorithmic systems.
  *   Resources for addressing emerging aspects of information and digital
literacy related to machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  *   Projects that reframe core values and practices (such as access and
literacy) in light of work from critical algorithm studies.

Invited workshop participants will present their proposals (in draft or
prototype form) and engage in workshop activities to refine and develop them
using constructive input from the group. Workshopped projects will be shared as
an online resource following the workshop.

Submissions should include a project abstract (500-word max) and bio (50 word
max) for each presenter. If submitting with co-authors, please limit the group
to no more than three presenters. Please submit all materials via email
recountingalgs@gmail.com by January 17, 2020.
Successful applicants will be notified of acceptance by February 7, 2020. Email
