Call for Papers
CoPDA 2021 - 6th International Workshop on Cultures of Participation in 
the Digital Age: AI for Humans or Humans for AI?
July 6, 2021 - Limassol, Cyprus
In conjunction with IS-EUD 2021 (

This one-day workshop edition addresses the theme "AI for Humans or 
Humans for AI?".
The workshop will explore the relationship between AI, aimed at 
replacing human beings, and Intelligence Augmentation (IA), focused on 
empowering human beings in their daily life and work. Balancing between 
these two perspectives means changing the research paradigm from 
traditional Human-Centered Design (HCD), to designing the collaboration 
between humans and computers. This will foster creativity, meaningful 
work, intersubjectivity, and learning, and eventually improve the 
quality of life of individuals. However, a variety of issues and ethical 
problems need to be addressed in this new age – e.g., privacy 
intrusions, massive unemployment, knowledge and competence loss, lack of 
control, autonomous weapons, etc. The workshop organizers encourage 
researchers to submit position papers that will consider these aspects.

In summary, the workshop will aim at discussing the importance of HCD in 
the AI Age by considering several topics including (but not limited to):
- Cooperative problem-solving systems
- Collaborative learning
- Meaningful human control
- Distributed cognition
- Tacit knowledge and meaning making
- Multi-dimensional aspects of learning
- Big data and privacy
- Learning analytics
- Human-machine teaming systems
- Explainability and accountability of AI-based decisions
- Evaluation of AI-based systems
- End-User Development for AI-based systems

Topics and Keywords
The workshop will explore specific questions around the relationship 
between AI and HCD, such as:
- Can we identify success stories and inspirational prototypes of 
systems where humans and AI components have created unique opportunities 
that neither one could achieve on their own?
- Can we identify failures of AI systems that we can learn from?
- How can we orient future development when considering the differences 
and complementarity between adaptive systems (focus on AI) and adaptable 
systems (focus on HCD)?
- Do the concepts of co-evolution and appropriation of human-machine 
team-ing/cooperative systems change in the AI age?
- How can End-User Development methods and techniques be used in 
AI-based systems to actively involve all stakeholders in design and 
development process?
- How do we measure the overall benefits of AI decision-making support?
- What are examples of collective human-centered design environments?
- Do insights derived from AI systems (e.g., from Big Data analysis and 
Learning Analytics) constitute unique contributions that humans are not 
able to contribute on their own?
- Will the current understanding of advanced technologies help us better 
under-stand who we are as human beings and what are our unique abilities?

Cultures of Participation (CoP); Artificial Intelligence (AI); 
Intelligence Augmentation (IA); Human-Centered Design (HCD); Design 
Trade-Offs; Quality of Life (QoL).
