[Mark Your Calendars] HCOMP 2019

Ujwal Gadiraju

### Apologies for cross-postings ###

The 7th AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP
2019) will be held Oct 28–30 at Skamania Lodge in Washington State near
the Columbia Gorge River, just 45 minutes from Portland, Oregon. This
year is the 10-year anniversary of the very first HCOMP workshop in
Paris, and to celebrate, there will be special events, talks, and panels
throughout the conference. HCOMP 2019 --

HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest research
findings on human computation and crowdsourcing. 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.
The 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,
to economics and the social sciences, all the way to digital humanities,
policy, and ethics. We promote the exchange of advances in human
computation and crowdsourcing not only among researchers, but also
engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across disciplines
and communities of practice.

------------------- IMPORTANT DATES --------------------
Abstracts submission: 3 June 2019 (5pm EST)
Full Papers Due: 5 June 2019 (5pm EST)
Notification: 2 August 2019
Main Conference: 29-30 October 2019
Workshops & Doctoral Consortium: 28 October 2019

------------------- CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS ---------------------

This year, we especially encourage work that generate new insights into
the “human computation” side of HCOMP, such as new understandings about
human cognition, human-in-the-loop intelligence systems, human-AI
interaction and collaboration, algorithmic and interface techniques for
augmenting human abilities to perform tasks, and other issues that
affect how humans collaborate with AI systems (such as bias, fairness
and interpretability).

###### Topics of Interests ######

HCOMP strongly believes in inviting, fostering, and promoting 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):

  - Crowdsourcing areas: e.g., citizen science, disaster response and
relief, crowdsourcing in health, travel, journalism, etc., collective
action, collective knowledge, crowdsourcing contests, crowd creativity,
crowd funding, crowd ideation, crowd sensing, distributed work,
freelancer economy, open innovation, microtasks, prediction markets,
wisdom of crowds, the future of work, etc.
  - Applications: e.g., gaming and gamification, knowledge bases, fact
verification, computer vision, databases, digital humanities,
information retrieval, machine learning, natural language and speech
processing, optimization, programming languages, systems, etc.
  - Crowd/human algorithms: e.g., computer-supported human computation,
crowd/human algorithm design and complexity, mechanism design, quality
control, etc.
  - Human-centered crowd studies: human-computer interaction, social
computing, cultural heritage, computer-supported cooperative work,
design, cognitive and behavioral sciences (psychology and sociology),
incentives, management science, economics, policy, ethics, etc.
