# Call for Submissions
This year, the Human Computation (HCOMP) and Collective Intelligence (CI) conferences are being jointly organized. We are excited about this opportunity to bring our two communities closer together, increase the visibility of work in this area, promote more multidisciplinary research, and create a diverse and engaging program. We look forward to your submissions and welcoming you to our joint conference. We hope to foster a fruitful and diverse exchange of ideas, research, and experiences across the HCOMP and CI communities.

# SUBMISSION PROCESS
We are thrilled to announce that the joint organization of CI and HCOMP will provide authors with the opportunity to access the best aspects of both conferences. With this collaboration, HCOMP will now allow authors to publish their accepted papers as extended abstracts if desired so that they can submit their work elsewhere for archival publication, while retaining a presentation at the conference. This change encourages social science researchers to participate and share their work. Meanwhile, CI will now enable authors to publish their papers archivally, thereby enhancing the conference’s academic value. We believe this collaboration will enable authors to showcase their work more effectively and contribute to advancing the fields of human computation, crowdsourcing, and computational intelligence.
To present a talk at the CI or HCOMP conference, authors must submit a full paper for review by the program committee. Accepted papers will be granted a presentation at the conference. Therefore, submitting a full paper is a mandatory requirement for authors who wish to present their work at the conference.
Extended abstract option. For some researchers and fields (e.g., social scientists or economists), it is beneficial to retain the option to publish the final paper outside of a conference venue. For other researchers, there is benefit from sharing work that was published in other venues with HCOMP-CI’s interdisciplinary audience. To support these researchers, there is an extended abstract option: publish only an extended abstract in the proceedings, should the paper be accepted. Extended abstracts still must submit a full paper for review. Electing for this extended abstraction option is a commitment to replacing the submitted full paper with a two page extended abstract at publication time. Submissions using this extended abstract option may be previously published elsewhere, or may be submitted for publication elsewhere later. Authors opting for the extended abstract option will have their papers juried rather than peer-reviewed; in other words, these articles will still be consi
dered fully by the program committee, but authors will not receive reviews back—only a decision. Extended abstract papers will be treated like full papers in the conference schedule: they will receive a presentation slot. If the work is previously published, authors must clearly and visibly indicate the original paper and citation in their manuscript.
Forward-to-journal option. Typically, accepted conference papers will be published only in the proceedings, and if authors later want to extend or publish the work in another venue, they need to start a new review process. This year, however, we are excited to share that authors will have the opportunity to forward their papers, alongside their existing reviews and reviewers, for consideration to the ACM + SAGE Collective Intelligence journal. The journal will, at its discretion, keep or expand the existing set of reviewers for the article and consider the work for publication in the Collective Intelligence journal, accelerating the journal publication process. This option must be selected at submission time. Papers submitting under the extended abstract option will have reviewers forwarded, but since extended abstract option submissions do not receive written reviews, reviews will not be forwarded. Authors should bear in mind that, if the paper is also published archivally at the co
nference, the journal may ask for expanded content.
# SUBCOMMITTEE SUBMISSION: HCOMP and CI
The conference is organized with one paper presentation track and two separate program subcommittees for paper submission and review. Authors may choose to submit to either the HCOMP or Collective Intelligence subcommittee. Each subcommittee reflects different areas of interest, as well as slightly different submission formats and instructions due to HCOMP being sponsored by AAAI and Collective Intelligence being sponsored by ACM.
