The inaugural Socially Responsible Language Modelling Research (SoLaR) workshop at NeurIPS 2023 is an interdisciplinary gathering that aims to foster responsible and ethical research in the field of language modeling. Recognizing the significant risks and harms [33-37] associated with the development, deployment, and use of language models, the workshop emphasizes the need for researchers to focus on addressing these risks starting from the early stages of development. The workshop brings together experts and practitioners from various domains and academic fields with a shared commitment to promoting fairness, equity, accountability, transparency, and safety in language modeling research. In addition to technical works on socially responsible language modeling research, we also encourage sociotechnical submissions from other disciplines such as philosophy, law, and policy, in order to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue on the societal impacts of LMs.
