*Full papers are due on June 7th, 2016*, with *abstracts due on May 31st*. HCOMP welcomes language-related submissions on crowdsourcing and human computation. We are also delighted to have Massimo Poesio (University of Essex) joining HCOMP's Senior Program Committee (SPC) this year.
In addition to full papers, HCOMP will offer many other ways to participate, including workshops, a doctoral consortium, a demos and “works-in-progress” track, an industry/practitioner track, and an all-new "Encore Track" in which authors of papers recently published elsewhere can request to give an encore presentation of their papers at HCOMP 2016. Calls for these events will follow in June, though early details are at http://www.humancomputation.com/2016/participate.html.
*Call for Full Papers - Extended Deadline* HCOMP strongly believes in inviting and fostering 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):
*- 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. - *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. - *crowdsourcing areas*: e.g., citizen science, collective action, collective knowledge, crowdsourcing contests, crowd creativity, crowdfunding, crowd ideation, crowd sensing, distributed work, freelancer economy, open innovation, microtasks, prediction markets, wisdom of crowds, etc.
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.
*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.
