ACMKDD Human Computation (HCOMP2010)

We invite you to participate in HCOMP2010 which will be held with KDD in
Washington, DC, USA on July 25, 2010.

Human computation is a relatively new research area that studies the process
of channeling the vast internet population to perform tasks or provide data
towards solving difficult problems that no known efficient computer
algorithms can yet solve.  HComp 2010 is to bring together academic and
industry researchers in a stimulating discussion of existing human
computation applications and
future directions of this area.  Topics of interests include, but are not
limited to:

 Abstraction of human computation tasks into taxonomies of mechanisms
 Programming languages, tools and platforms to support human computation
 Domain-specific implementation challenges in human computation games
 Cost, reliability, and skill of labelers
 Benefits of one-time versus repeated labeling
 Game-theoretic mechanism design of incentives for motivation and honest
 Design of manipulation-resistance mechanisms in human computation
 Active learning from imperfect human labelers
 Utility of social networks and social credit in garnering data
 Optimality in the context of human computation
 Focus on tasks where crowds, not individuals, have the answers
 Limitations of human computation
