Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.


AAAI Human Computation and Crowdsourcing Conference 2017

May 3rd, 2017 / in Announcements, research horizons, Research News / by Helen Wright

The Fifth AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing will be held in Quebec City, Canada, October 24-26, 2017. It will be sponsored by the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence.

Included below is the Call for Papers, as well as an overview of the following submission deadlines:

May 4, 2017: Full Papers Submission Deadline
June 30, 2017: Works-in-Progress, Posters, and Demos Submission Deadline
August 1, 2017: Doctoral Consortium Application Deadline

HCOMP strongly believes in inviting, fostering, and promoting broad, interdisciplinary research on crowdsourcing and human computation. Submissions are invited 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, cultural heritage, computer-supported cooperative work, design, cognitive and behavioral sciences (psychology and sociology), management science, economics, policy, ethics, etc.
  • Applications: e.g., 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, 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.

The Computing Community Consortium (CCC) held a Human Computation Roadmap Summit in June 2014 and has co-hosted two symposia with AAAI on Accelerating Science: A Grand Challenge for AI in November 2016 and AI for Social Good in March 2017.
