** Overview **

Though deep learning has made a big progress in recent years, it appears weak in interpretability of the reasoning process and decision results. Some people consider deep learning in the current stage as alchemy, instead of science. It would raise a big concern while deep learning is applied in mission-critical scenarios. For this reason, the explainable AI have received a great attention from research to industry. This workshop will provide a forum for sharing the insights about explainable AI, exchanging the state-of-the art of explainable AI research and applications, discussing future direction and further work in this area.

** Topics **

The scope of this workshop will include but not limited to:
 - Algorithms, tools, frameworks for Explainable AI
 - Modified deep learning models with interpretable features
 - Structured, interpretable, causal models
 - Inferring an explainable model from any model as a black box
 - Evaluation for explainablity, metrics and measurement
 - Combination of human intelligence (HI) and machine intelligence (MI)
 - Explanation interfaces
 - Business applications of explainable AI
 - Fairness, Accountability, and Transparency in AI
 - Ethical aspects and law, legal issues and social responsibility

** Paper Submission **

The manuscripts are expected to be formatted in accordance with Springer style sheets [LaTeX, http://tcci.ccf.org.cn/conference/2019/dldoc/llncs2e.zip <http://tcci.ccf.org.cn/conference/2019/dldoc/llncs2e.zip>] [Microsoft Word, http://tcci.ccf.org.cn/conference/2019/dldoc/splnproc1703.zip <http://tcci.ccf.org.cn/conference/2019/dldoc/splnproc1703.zip>], in PDF format, and submitted electronically through the website https://www.softconf.com/j/xai2019/ <https://www.softconf.com/j/xai2019/>.
