Are all the images similar? Because I think it's hard to image trace in 'bulk', since you might want to adjust the options for each image. But in principle you could record it (one image trace action) as an 'action' and then batch that action on a folder (that contains multiple images). The action could be something like: "open an image (from within a specific folder) with Illustrator, select all, image trace, save as (...), ..." You can batch this so the action runs on a folder with multiple images. In order to do this, you have to understand how actions work (and you have to understand the terms like override "action save / open commands" ...) It depends on your specific situation and the type of images. But anyway, I doubt it will be a successful workflow in the end. But you can try...

Assuming you have access to Adobe Bridge, there is a Batch Image Trace functionality in the Tools menu.

You can use it and select Image Trace presets there.

Of course. I didn't think of that! Is there any way to adjust the specifications (advanced options) of the image trace, via Bridge? (I don't think so. But I've never actually used it from within Bridge so I'm not familiar with it.)
