The* 2016 AAAI Conference on Crowdsourcing and Human Computation (HCOMP)* will
be held October 30 - November 3, 2016 in Austin, TX, USA.
Follow us on Twitter: *@hcomp_conf*
*Full papers are due on June 7th, 2016*, with *abstracts due on May 31st*.
See details below.
In addition to full papers, HCOMP will offer many other ways to
participate, including workshops, a doctoral consortium, a demos and
“works-in-progress” track, an industry/practitioner track, and an all-new
"Encore Track" in which authors of papers recently published elsewhere can
request to give an encore presentation of their papers at HCOMP 2016. Calls
for these events will follow in June, though early details are at
*Call for Full Papers - Extended Deadline*
HCOMP strongly believes in inviting and fostering broad, interdisciplinary
research on crowdsourcing and human computation. Submissions may present
principles, studies, and/or applications of systems that rely on
programmatic interaction with crowds, or where human perception, knowledge,
reasoning, or physical activity and coordination contributes to the
operation of computational systems, applications, or services. More
generally, we invite submissions from the broad spectrum of related fields
and application areas including (but not limited to):
*- human-centered crowd studies*: e.g., human-computer interaction, social
computing, design, cognitive and behavioral sciences (psychology and
sociology), management science, economics, policy, ethics, etc.
- *applications and algorithms*: e.g., computer vision, cultural heritage,
databases, digital humanities, information retrieval, machine learning,
natural language (and speech) processing, optimization, programming
languages, systems, etc.
- *crowdsourcing areas*: e.g., citizen science, collective action,
collective knowledge, crowdsourcing contests, crowd creativity,
crowdfunding, crowd ideation, crowd sensing, distributed work, freelancer
economy, open innovation, microtasks, prediction markets, wisdom of crowds,
To ensure relevance, submissions are encouraged 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 computation.
Full papers of up to 10 pages may be submitted. Full papers must represent
original work, not previously published or under simultaneous peer-review
for any other peer-reviewed, archival conference or journal. All papers
must be anonymized (include no information identifying the authors or their
institutions) for double-blind peer-review and formatted according to the
conference's style guidelines. Accepted papers will be published in the
HCOMP conference proceedings and included in the HCOMP Conference's Digital
Archive. HCOMP is a young but quickly growing conference, with a historical
acceptance rate of 30% for full papers.
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
cultural heritage, digital humanities, ethics, and policy. The HCOMP
conference is aimed at promoting the exchange of advances in human
computation and crowdsourcing among not only researchers, but also
engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across a spectrum of
disciplines and communities of practice.
HCOMP 2016 builds on a successful history of past meetings: three HCOMP
conferences (2013-2015) and four earlier workshops, held in conjunction
with 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.
