The 2016 AAAI Conference on Crowdsourcing and Human Computation (HCOMP)
will be held October 30 - November 3, 2016 in Austin, TX, USA.

In addition to the main conference tracks, HCOMP will offer several
workshops, a doctoral consortium, and a tutorial (details below).  A
forthcoming announcement email will share details on an Industry & Practice
Track and an Encore Track.

PhD Students interested in the doctoral consortium should apply by August
19. Two HCOMP workshops have calls for papers, due August 1, while
CrowdCamp and the tutorial have open enrollment.

*# Workshops and Tutorials*
Information and links to individual calls at

* Workshop: Human Computation for Image and Video Analysis (GroupSight)

     Papers due: Aug 1, 2016

* Workshop: Mathematical Foundations of Human Computation

     Papers due: Aug 1, 2016

* Workshop: CrowdCamp (a one day hackathon)

     Open for sign-up

* Tutorial: Crowdsourced Data Processing: Industry & Academic Perspectives

     Sign-up when registration opens

*# Doctoral Consortium*

* Financial Support provided, applications due August 19th

The doctoral consortium is a full-day event that connects doctoral students
to colleagues and experienced researchers in the field. Thanks to generous
support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Artificial
Intelligence Journal (AIJ), we expect to be able to support most expenses
associated with attendance for all accepted students. Students must apply
with an overview of their research directions in the fields of human
computation and crowdsourcing. Accepted students will be matched to a
mentor for more detailed feedback, and will present their work in the
doctoral consortium and at the conference’s main poster session.

Please forward this information to your students!

# About HCOMP

HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest research findings
on crowdsourcing and human computation. While artificial intelligence (AI)
and human-computer interaction (HCI) represent traditional mainstays of the
conference, HCOMP believes strongly in inviting, fostering, and promoting
broad, interdisciplinary research. This field is particularly unique in the
diversity of disciplines it draws upon, and contributes to, ranging from
human-centered qualitative studies and HCI design, to computer science and
artificial intelligence, economics and the social sciences, all the way to
cultural heritage, digital humanities, ethics, and policy. The HCOMP
conference is aimed at promoting the exchange of advances in human
computation and crowdsourcing among not only researchers, but also
engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across a spectrum of
disciplines and communities of practice.
