In 2007, the International Programs in Law of the Kyushu University's Faculty of Law started to organize the Kyushu University's Annual Law Symposium. In 2019, we will organize the 12th edition. The theme chosen for this edition is "Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Algorithms: Regulation, Governance, Markets."

Algorithms are increasingly controlling, shaping, governing or regulating products, decisions, and judgments. Yet, these algorithms are often ‘black boxes’, identifying that there is still lots of obscurity surrounding their operation. To prevent that this leads to either under- or over-regulation, a better understanding of the debates on algorithms across disciplines is necessary. 

To achieve such an understanding, our aim is to bring together experts with a background in technology, economics, sociology, and ethics to address the many uncertainties — both practical and normative — surround the scope, direction and effects of algorithms and related technologies. This international and multi-disciplinary event aims to contribute to a better understanding of the diverse and complex issues surrounding the emergence of algorithms.

Kyushu University is kindly supporting the organization of this event under the framework of their funding program "Progress 100 - Research Hub for the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Interdisciplinary Studies, Kyushu University (RINK)." We are extremely thankful to Kyushu University for the generous support.

The Conference on Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Algorithms takes place between November 21 and 23, 2019. The Conference will take place at the Ito Campus of Kyushu University (Fukuoka, Japan). This conference aims to bring together researchers from diverse fields in order to deepen our understanding of the meaning and effects of algorithms, and to think about how business, regulators and ordinary people can best respond to this fast-changing digital reality. The conference will be structured around a number of key themes. Each theme is designed to provide a platform for multiple disciplinary perspectives on diverse issues associated with the rise of algorithms:


Security, Privacy, Transparency


Human-Machine Identities & Interfacing

Social Inclusion/Exclusion



The Future?
