* 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 digital humanities,
policy, and ethics. We promote the exchange of advances in human
computation and crowdsourcing not only among researchers, but also
engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across disciplines
and communities of practice.
HCOMP 2018 builds on a successful history of past meetings: five HCOMP
conferences (2013–2017) and four earlier workshops, held at the AAAI
Conference on Artificial Intelligence (2011–2012), and the ACM SIGKDD
Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (2009–2010).
Proceedings from past HCOMP conferences are available online in the
HCOMP Conference Digital Archive.
* Call for Full Papers
The Program Committee will oversee the review process and ensure that
each submission receives a constructive and rigorous review.
* Previously unpublished. All submitted papers must represent original
work, not previously published or under simultaneous peer-review for any
other peer-reviewed, archival conference or journal.
* Length. Papers of up to 8 pages (references can extend beyond 8 pages)
may be submitted.
Formatting. Submissions must be formatted in AAAI two-column,
camera-ready style. (See the AAAI 2018 Author Kit). Papers must be in
trouble-free, high-resolution PDF format, formatted for US Letter (8.5"
x 11") paper, using Type 1 or TrueType fonts.
* Anonymized. All papers must be anonymized (include no information
identifying the authors or their institutions) for double-blind peer-review.
* Supplemental Materials. Authors are invited, but not required, to
include supplemental materials such as executables and data files so
that reviewers can reproduce results in the paper, images, additional
videos, related papers, more detailed explanations, derivations, or
results. These materials will be viewed only at the discretion of the
reviewers, who are only obligated to read your paper itself.
* Archival. Accepted full papers will be published in the HCOMP
conference proceedings and included in the AAAI Digital Library. HCOMP
is a young but quickly growing conference, with a historical acceptance
rate of 25–30% for full papers.
* Submission. Papers should be submitted via EasyChair. For abstract
submission, abstracts can be entered directly into the EasyChair form
field; it is not necessary to upload any file. Please be sure to declare
any conflicts-of-interest with PC members by selecting the "Declare
Conflicts" link on upper-right of your EasyChair submission page.
* Review criteria. Reviewers will be instructed to evaluate paper
submissions according to specific review criteria. We encourage authors
to review these criteria and contact us with any questions or feedback.
To ensure relevance, submissions are encouraged to include research
questions and contributions of broad interest to crowdsourcing and human
computation, as well as discuss relevant open problems and prior work in
the field. When evaluation is conducted entirely within a specific
domain, authors are encouraged to discuss how findings might generalize
to other communities and application areas using crowdsourcing and human
At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
conference to present the work or acceptance will be withdrawn.
* Paper Awards
Continuing the tradition of Past Paper Awards, HCOMP 2018 will recognize
a Best Paper and two Best Paper Finalists. New in 2018 will be a Best
Poster or Demo Award.
Continuing the partnership between HCOMP and the Journal of Artificial
Intelligence Research (JAIR), all HCOMP 2018 paper awardees (i.e., best
paper through finalists) will be invited to submit extended versions of
their papers for fast-track publication in JAIR's Award-Winning Papers
Track. This track seeks to recognize the best work at leading
conferences and bring additional exposure to the authors' work. Upon
acceptance, extended papers will be published in a regular volume of
JAIR, recognized in the Award-Winning Papers Track, and linked from the
HCOMP Conference website's Past Paper Awards. While JAIR broadly covers
all areas of artificial intelligence, JAIR recognizes that HCOMP's
interdisciplinary research extends beyond traditional boundaries of
artificial intelligence. JAIR is committed to inviting relevant HCOMP PC
members to review extended papers submitted to the Award-Winning Track.
* Call for Workshops
HCOMP workshops are a gathering place for people interested in
Crowdsourcing and/or Human Computation to meet in the context of a
focused and interactive discussion. They are an opportunity to move a
field forward and build community. Workshops might address basic or
applied research, crowdsourcing in industry, new methodologies, or
emerging application areas. Each workshop should generate ideas that
will give the HCOMP community a fresh way of thinking about the topic or
that suggest promising directions for future work. Selected workshops
will be held on July 5, the day before the main conference begins. If
you would like to organize a workshop, please reach out to
[log in to unmask] by April 6 with a description of your proposed
topic, intended audience, and a one-day or half-day schedule.
We look forward to a fantastic HCOMP 2018 and invite you to join us!
