The *2016 AAAI Conference on Crowdsourcing and **Human Computation *
*(HCOMP)* will be held October 30 - November 3, 2016 in Austin, TX, USA.

*Full papers are due** on May 17, 2016*, in just under 2 months!  (Abstracts
are due a week earlier, on May 10.)  See "Call for Full Papers" below for

HCOMP has a strong tradition of HCI-related crowdsourcing research,
including conference organization and program committees, and conference

*Senior Program Committee*

*Stay tuned for more ways to participate! *Additional calls will follow for
demos and short papers, an industry/practitioner track, a doctoral
consortium, workshops, and an all-new "Encore Track" in which authors
of crowdsourcing
papers recently published in journals or other conferences can apply to
give an encore presentation of their work at HCOMP 2016.

*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
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.

*Call for Full Papers*

HCOMP strongly believes in inviting, fostering, and promoting 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):

   - *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.
   - *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.
   - *crowdsourcing areas*: e.g., citizen science, collective action,
   collective knowledge, crowdsourcing contests, crowd creativity, crowd
   funding, 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.

*Important Dates*

May 10, 2016: Full Papers abstracts due (only used for assigning reviewers;
abstracts can still be revised for full paper deadline)
May 17, 2016: Full Papers due
June 15, 2016: Reviews released to authors
