[on behalf of Adam Sales & Anthony Botelho]

Call for Papers:

Causal Inference in EDM Half day virtual workshop
@ EDM 2020
10 July, 2020

This workshop is intended to raise awareness of the ubiquity and importance
of causal questions in EDM, some of the exciting methods available to
address those questions, and some of the open questions of causal inference
in EDM. It will include invited discussions of ongoing projects addressing
causal questions, and short talks about relevant work in progress,
including work in any stage of development.

We are soliciting three types of submissions:
–  Long (20 minute) talks describing EDM research with a causal flavor
–  Short (10 minute) talks describing causal EDM work in progress
–  Open problems: In this portion of the workshop, you will briefly (~5
minutes) present a causal EDM question that you don’t know how to solve.
Each presentation will be followed by an open-ended discussion among the
workshop participants, hopefully suggesting ways to solve, or at least
better refine the problem. This sub-workshop will hopefully give the
presenting researchers constructive suggestions, and spur collaborations.

Areas of interest (examples)
    A/B Testing and randomized experiments
    Multi-armed bandits
    Graphical causal models/Bayesian networks
    Algorithmic causal discovery
    Causal mechanism/mediation analysis/principal stratification
    Estimating EDM program impacts
    Identifying and predicting differential effects
    Connections between machine learning and causal inference
    Dynamic treatment regimes
    Observational studies: causal inference without randomization

Important Dates
Submission deadline: Monday, June 15, 2020
Acceptance notification: Monday, June 29, 2020
