We invite you to join us for the Second AAAI Conference on Human 
Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP-2014), to be held November 2-4, 2014 
in Pittsburgh PA, USA.

Submission deadline for Papers: April 1, 2014

The HCOMP conference is aimed at promoting the scientific exchange of 
advances in human computation and crowdsourcing among researchers, 
engineers, and practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines who may 
otherwise not have the opportunity to hear from one another.

The conference was created by researchers from diverse fields to serve as 
a focal point and scholarly venue for the review and presentation of the 
highest quality work on principles, studies, and applications of human 
computation and crowdsourcing. HCOMP 2014 builds on a series of four 
successful earlier workshops (2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012) and the first 
AAAI HCOMP conference held in 2013.

The HCOMP conference is cross-disciplinary, and we invite submissions 
across the broad spectrum of crowdsourcing and human computation work. 
Human computation and crowdsourcing is unique in its direct engagement and 
reliance on both human-centered studies and traditional computer science.

HCOMP invites submissions on human computation and crowdsourcing in 
multiple fields, including

Human-centered fields, such as:
   human-computer interaction
   cognitive psychology
   management science
   social computing

Technical fields, such as:
   information retrieval
   machine learning

HCOMP also invites submissions 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.

The conference will include presentations of new research, 
works-in-progress and demo sessions, and invited talks. A day of workshops 
and tutorials will precede the main conference.

All full papers will be published as AAAI archival proceedings in the AAAI 
digital library. The paper track will not accept work recently published 
or soon to be published in another conference or journal. However, to 
encourage exchange of ideas, such work can be submitted to the 
non-archival work-in-progress and demo track.

We hope you'll submit your best work to HCOMP and look forward to seeing 
you in Pittsburgh.
