HCOMP 2016 Workshop on Human Computation for Image and Video Analysis (

*Submission Deadline*: August 1, 2016  (11:59 pm EDT)

The aim of this workshop is to promote greater interaction between the
diversity of researchers and practitioners who examine how to mix human and
computer efforts to convert visual data into discoveries and innovations
that benefit society at large.  It will foster in-depth discussion of
technical and application issues for how to engage humans with computers to
optimize cost/quality trade-offs.  It will also serve as an introduction to
researchers and students curious about this important, emerging field at
the intersection of crowdsourced human computation and image/video
analysis.  Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

   - Crowdsourcing image and video annotations (e.g., more efficient
   labeling methods, quality control)
   - Humans in the loop for visual tasks (e.g., recognition, segmentation,
   tracking, counting, etc).
   - Richer modalities of communication between humans and visual
   information (e.g., language, 3D pose, attributes)
   - Semi-automated computer vision algorithms
   - Active visual learning

The goal of this workshop is to promote original research and provide a
venue for discussion among active researchers in the field.  We invite two
types of submissions:

   1. *Original work* not published elsewhere.  Papers should be submitted
   as 4-page extended abstracts (including references) using the provided
   author kit.  Accepted abstracts will be eligible for a best paper award and
   will be presented as posters with 5-minute spotlights.  Dual submissions
   are not allowed.  Reviewing will be double-blind.
   2. *Previously published work *from a recent conference or journal.
   Authors should submit an unrevised copy of their published work.  Accepted
   papers will be presented as posters.  Reviewing will be single-blind.

There will be no proceedings.
