Crowdsourcing and human computation are transforming human-computer interaction: from games with a purpose, to creative uses of Mechanical Turk, to massive volunteer projects like Wikipedia, to new ways to run user studies and new interactive systems powered by crowds. We are just beginning to learn what's possible when we harness the crowd in human-computer interaction. The goal of this workshop is to stake out a research agenda for our field.
This one-day workshop will bring together researchers within and beyond the CHI community who have demonstrated interest in crowdsourcing and human computation, in order to lay out a framework for continued innnovation. We aim to gather researchers who are:
In addition to community building, we want to produce several deliverables:
These deliverables will be posted on this web site and maintained going forward.
Note that this workshop is not intended for presentations of original research work. After a round of introductory lightning talks, we will spend most of the day in group discussion.
The times in the schedule below are tentative, depending on exactly when CHI schedules the refreshment breaks in the morning and afternoon.
Introduction and overview by the workshop organizers.
1-minute talk from authors of each position paper, with opportunities for questions and discussion at intervals.
|10:30—11:00 am||morning break|
Three-person chats about research interests, rotating every 10 minutes.
|12:30—2:00 pm||lunch break|
Tables for small-group work:
|3:30—4:00 pm||afternoon break|
Continue small-group work, and summarize for closing plenary.
Table leaders summarize their results.
Final discussion and thoughts about what comes next.
In the list below, the authors in boldface will be attending the workshop. Note that this workshop is not archival (unlike workshops in some non-SIGCHI communities), so work shared in the position papers below can be later submitted to future archival research venues.
As with previous years, workshop attendees are required to register for at least one day of the full CHI conference, in addition to paying a fee for the workshop. Conference rates can be found on the CHI 2011 web site. Only those who have had position papers accepted can attend the workshop. Accepted participants will be provided with a registration code by the workshop organizers, which will allow them to register for the workshop on the CHI 2011 registration site.
