The Third AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP-2015) will be held in November 2015 (location to be determined). 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. The HCOMP conference is thus 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 key 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. The meeting seeks and embraces work on human computation and crowdsourcing in multiple fields, including human-centered fields like human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, economics, management science, and social computing, and technical fields like databases, systems, information retrieval, optimization, vision, speech, robotics, machine learning, and planning.
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.
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. The Doctoral Consortium will give doctoral students a unique opportunity to meet each other and experienced researchers in the broad interdisciplinary field of human computation and crowdsourcing. Submissions to the main conference will be due on May 1st 2015.
