*************** Call for Papers ***************

Human­-in-­the-­loop is a model of interaction where a machine process 
and one or more humans have an iterative interaction. In this paradigm 
the user has the ability to heavily influence the outcome of the process 
by providing feedback to the system as well as the opportunity to grab 
different perspectives about the underlying domain and understand the 
step by step machine process leading to a certain outcome. Amongst the 
current major concerns in Artificial Intelligence research are being 
able to explain and understand the results as well as avoiding bias in 
the underlying data that might lead to unfair or unethical conclusions. 
Typically, computers are fast and accurate in processing vast amounts of 
data. People, however, are creative and bring in their perspectives and 
interpretation power. Bringing humans and machines together creates a 
natural symbiosis for accurate interpretation of data at scale. The goal 
of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners in 
various areas of AI (i.e., Machine Learning, NLP, Computational 
Advertising, etc.) to explore new pathways of the human­-in-­the-loop 

*************** Research Topics ***************

*************** Submission ********************

The proceedings of the workshop will be published online (open access) 
and throughACM Digital Library 
as a companion volume of The Web Conf.

Papers must be submitted in PDF according to the new ACM format 
published inACM guidelines 
selecting the generic “sigconf” sample. Submissions should not exceed 8 
pages including any diagrams or appendices and references. The PDF files 
must have all non-standard fonts embedded. Submissions must be 
self-contained and in English.
