********************************************************

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together researchers from
a variety of fields relevant to understanding and designing collective
intelligence of many types.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

   -

   human computation
   -

   social computing
   -

   crowdsourcing
   -

   wisdom of crowds (e.g., prediction markets)
   -

   group memory and extended cognition
   -

   collective decision making and problem-solving
   -

   participatory and deliberative democracy
   -

   animal collective behavior
   -

   organizational design
   -

   public policy design (e.g., regulatory reform)
   -

   ethics of collective intelligence (e.g., "digital sweatshops")
   -

   computational models of group search and optimization
   -

   emergence and evolution of intelligence
   -

   new technologies for making groups smarter


CONFERENCE FORMAT

The conference will consist of

   -

   Invited talks from prominent researchers in different areas related to
   collective intelligence
   -

   Oral presentations (see below)
   -

   Poster/Demo sessions (see below)
   -

   “Ignite” sessions in which practitioners (e.g. policy makers) connect
   with researchers around collective-intelligence-based solutions to
   real-world problems


SUBMISSION

Submissions of two types are invited:

   -

   Reports of original research results
   -

   Demonstrations of tools/technology


All submissions should  be formatted as three-page extended abstracts (see
www.collectiveintelligence2014.org for Word and Latex templates), and
should be submitted at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/CI2014

In order to encourage a diversity of innovative ideas from a variety of
fields, submissions may refer to work that is recently published, under
review elsewhere, or in preparation, and may link to up to one publicly
accessible paper for the purpose of describing the work in detail. However,
submissions will be evaluated solely on the submitted abstract, which must
therefore comprise an entirely self-contained description of the work.

After review by the Program Committee, a subset of submitted papers will be
invited for oral presentation, as well as for presentation as posters
and/or demos. A second subset will also be invited exclusively for
presentation as posters and/or demos.

Accepted submissions (including for posters and demos) will be compiled
into a single report which will be made available on http://arxiv.org. We
emphasize that published abstracts are not intended to be considered
archival publications or to preclude submission of the reported work to
archival journals; however, we cannot guarantee that certain journals do
not have policies precluding the publishing of extended abstracts.

Authors will not receive detailed feedback from the review process, and
accepted abstracts will be included as submitted (i.e. submissions should
be camera-ready).
