Call For Papers

*Call for Papers (Extended Abstracts)*

*Collective Intelligence 2016

*June 1-3, 2016*
*New York University, New York, NY*


The annual interdisciplinary conference that brings together researchers
from the academy, businesses, non-profits, governments and the world at
large to share insights and ideas from a variety of fields relevant to
understanding and designing collective intelligence in its many forms.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

   - human computation
   - social computing
   - crowdsourcing
   - crowdfunding
   - wisdom of crowds (e.g., prediction markets)
   - group memory and extended cognition
   - collective decision making and problem-solving
   - participatory and deliberative democracy
   - animal collective behavior
   - organizational design and strategy
   - public policy design (e.g., regulatory reform)
   - ethics of collective intelligence (e.g., "digital sweatshops")
   - computational models of group search and optimization
   - emergence and evolution of intelligence
   - new technologies for making groups smarter

Submissions of two types are invited:

   - Reports of original results
   - Demonstrations of tools/technology

All submissions should be formatted as four-page extended abstracts (up to
3 pages for content and 1 page for references).

   - LaTex template: ci2016-sample-latex
   - Word template: ci2016-sample-word

All submission should be converted to PDF at the time of submission. Please

In order to encourage a diversity of innovative ideas from a variety of
fields, submissions may refer to work that is recently published, under
review elsewhere, or in preparation, and may link to up to one publicly
accessible paper for the purpose of describing the work in detail. However,
submissions will be evaluated solely on the submitted abstract, which must
therefore comprise an entirely self-contained description of the work.

After review by the Program Committee, a subset of submitted abstracts will
be invited for oral presentation with additional presentation as posters
and/or demos. A second subset will also be invited exclusively for
presentation as posters and/or demos.

Authors will not receive detailed feedback from the review process, just an
accept/reject decision. The main criteria will be: 1) whether the subject
matter is a good fit for the Collective Intelligence conference; 2) whether
there are interesting claims made with a promise to present evidence or
non-obvious arguments in support of them. The review committee will not
assess the validity of the evidence or arguments.

Accepted submissions will be compiled into a single report which will be
made available to conference participants. We emphasize that abstracts that
are distributed to conference participants are not intended to be
considered archival publications or to preclude submission of the reported
work to archival journals; however, we cannot guarantee that certain
journals do not have policies precluding the distribution of extended
abstracts. Accepted abstracts will be included as submitted (i.e.,
submissions should be camera-ready).

If your abstract is accepted for presentation or poster session, at least
one author has to commit to attending the conference.
