SIGIR Forum, 2019

The purpose of the SIGIR 2019 workshop on Fairness, Accountability, Confidentiality, Trans-parency, and Safety (FACTS-IR) was to explore challenges in responsible information re-trieval system development and deployment. To this end, the workshop aimed to crowd-source from the larger SIGIR community and draft an actionable research agenda on fivekey dimensions of responsible information retrieval: fairness, accountability, confidentiality,transparency, and safety. Such an agenda can guide others in the community that are in-terested in pursuing FACTS-IR research, as well as inform potential funders about relevantresearch avenues. The workshop brought together a diverse set of researchers and prac-titioners interested in contributing to the development of a technical research agenda forresponsible information retrieval.
