The majority of the above program committee members have already been contacted and have confirmed their participation in the program committee, ensuring to have multiple representatives from disciplines such as information science, cognitive science, cybersecurity, healthcare, and other societal or high-stake decision-making applications.

Papers should be submitted following the KDD 2023 Conference Template and will be reviewed following a double-blind reviewing policy. Papers selected for presentation at the workshop will be included in the workshop's proceedings as open access publications with CEUR and will be considered archival.
