Call for Participation

This one-day hybrid workshop, organized by an interdisciplinary group of scholars, will bring together a transdisciplinary group of researchers, practitioners, legal scholars, and regulators to discuss opportunities to address dark patterns across different domains and from different disciplinary perspectives. We will identify opportunities to strengthen and build upon scholarship relating to dark patterns methodologies, characterization of harms, and counter-measures to reduce the impact of dark patterns. We will also seek to build translational capacity to connect scholarship, legal jurisprudence, and regulation of dark patterns—informing our theme of “organizing for action.” Participants can submit either a position paper or statement of interest to the workshop website in the single-column ACM Conference Proceedings Primary Article format. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance, and diversity. Only position papers will be published through the CEUR Workshop Proceedings site. At least one author of each paper or statement must attend both the workshop and at least one day of the main conference.

Call for Position Papers

Applicants may submit a 5-9 page position paper (excluding references). These position papers can include findings from in-progress research on dark patterns, their impacts, or counter-measure interventions. Position papers may also focus on translation of dark patterns concepts or issues across disciplinary boundaries, including arguments that enable legal or describe regulatory action.

Call for General Attendees

Applicants may submit a 1-2 page statement without an abstract, detailing their interest in participating in the workshop and what they hope to gain from attendance.
