HCOMP is aimed at promoting the scientific exchange of advances in human computation and crowdsourcing among researchers, engineers, and practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines. The conference was created 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. The meeting seeks and embraces work on human computation and crowdsourcing in multiple fields, including human-computer interaction, cognitive psychology, economics, information retrieval, economics, databases, systems, optimization, and multiple sub-disciplines of artificial intelligence, such as vision, speech, robotics, machine learning, and planning.

Submissions are invited on efforts and developments on principles, experiments, and implementations 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. Submissions will be reviewed by a program committee of leading researchers from multiple areas – the complete committee list is available online.

The conference will include presentations of new research, poster and demo sessions, and invited talks. A day of workshops and tutorials, as well as a two-day CrowdCamp, will follow the main conference.

We hope you’ll submit your best work to HCOMP and look forward to seeing you in Palm Springs.
