I am delighted that the Symposium on Foundations of Responsible Computing (FORC) is on its way. This is a new forum that will host mathematical research in computation and society, under an inclusive umbrella. A major purpose is to give a home and to nurture the growing community within the Theory of Computing and neighboring fields whose research is focused on the societal impact of computing. This vision is shared by many in this area, and I am very proud of the remarkable list of steering committee members that have volunteered to create and promote the new conference.
The call for papers for FORC 2020 is out. The PC chair, Aaron Roth, has done a remarkable job forming a strong program committee, and we are off to a great start. Please consider sending your research papers and looking forward to seeing many of you at FORC 2020 in the beginning of June at Harvard.
