*Deadline for full papers*: May 17, 2016

*About HCOMP*

HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest research findings
on crowdsourcing and human computation. While organized under the aegis of
AAAI, 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
law and policy. The HCOMP conference is aimed at promoting the exchange of
scientific advances in human computation and crowdsourcing among not only
researchers, but also engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialog
across a spectrum of disciplines and communities of practice.

HCOMP 2016 builds on a successful history of past meetings: three AAAI
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 Papers*

HCOMP strongly believes in inviting, fostering, and promoting broad,
interdisciplinary research. We therefore invite submissions across the
broad spectrum of crowdsourcing and human computation, across fields and
specific application areas. Submissions are invited on principles, studies,
and applications of systems that rely on programmatic access to human
intellect to perform some aspect of computation, or where human perception,
knowledge, reasoning, or physical activity and coordination contributes to
the operation of larger computational systems, applications, and services.

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.

*The theme for HCOMP 2016 is Interaction*:

   - between people and technology that is foundational to human computation
   - between theoretical foundations, experimental work, and engineering
   - between the computational, scientific, and social applications of
   human computation
   - between diverse disciplines and perspectives, within the HCOMP
   community and beyond

*Full Papers*

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.

June 15, 2016: Reviews released to authors
June 21, 2016: [Optional] Author rebuttals due
July 11, 2016: Notification of acceptance decisions
