***************** CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *****************
SoHuman 2013 - 2nd International Workshop on Social Media
for Crowdsourcing and Human Computation

May 1, 2013, Paris

at ACM Web Science 2013
collocated with ACM HyperText'13 & ACM CHI'13 & ACM ECRC'13
***************** CALL FOR PARTICIPATION *****************

This workshop aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners from different disciplines to explore the
challenges and opportunities of applying social media to
designing novel applications of collective intelligence,
with a special focus on crowdsourcing and human computation.
By emphasizing practical challenges and experiences with
real-world applications, the workshop will stimulate the
discussion on best practices in this quickly growing field.

Based on the successful experience of the previous workshop
SoHuman 2012, this workshop will consider crowdsourcing and
human computation in the broader context: as specific
instantiations of collective intelligence and social
computing on the web. The goal is to identify how experience
gained from the design of crowdsourcing applications can
inform the development of new approaches to collective
intelligence, and vice versa: what lessons from the broader
domain of collective intelligence can inform the design of
new kinds of systems for crowdsourcing and human computation?

The workshop program includes a keynote given by
Michael Bernstein (Stanford HCI) on "Crowd-powered Systems"
and 5 exciting papers on current issues and novel approaches
in crowdsourcing and human computation (30% acceptance rate)
followed by a discussion panel.

The detailed program is available at:

Attendance to the workshop is free of charge for anyone registered for
either the ACM Web Science or Hypertext conference.
Workshop-only registration is also possible (84€).
