Call For Participation, Human Computation 2016, 
Austin TX, Oct 30-Nov 3

The Fourth AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing
(HCOMP-2016) is now welcoming submissions to three tracks:

1. Works-in-Progress and Demonstration Papers
Early progress work or work that is most appropriate for the demonstration

2. Encore Track
High-quality and relevant previously published work.

3. Industry and Practice Track
Crowdsourcing in practice.

For all tracks, please SUBMIT BY AUG 15th.

More information for these calls is at:

We hope to see you in Austin! If you have any additional concerns, email us
at hcomp16 at gmail.com. There is also a discussion list for all things Human
Computation and Crowdsourcing, at

Works in Progress

Work-in-progress papers provide a unique opportunity for sharing valuable
ideas, eliciting useful feedback on early-stage work, and fostering
discussions and collaborations among colleagues. A demonstration is a
high-visibility, high-impact forum of the HCOMP program that allows you to
present your hands-on demonstration, share novel interactive technologies,
and stage interactive experiences. We encourage submissions from any area
of human computation and crowdsourcing.

Track co-chairs:
- Ece Kamar (Microsoft Research)
- Walter S. Lasecki (University of Michigan)

Length. Works-in-Progress & Demonstration papers can be up to 2 pages
(excluding references, which may be unlimited pages), may be submitted.

Works in Progress and Demonstrations are NOT anonymized and NOT Archival.
Authors should include information identifying themselves and their
institutions for single-blind review. Accepted papers will not be included
in official conference proceedings, and so may be submitted later to other
conferences or journals for official publication. Authors will decide at
submission what should be posted on HCOMP's conference's website if the
paper is accepted: only the paper's title, or the PDF for the entire paper.

Encore Track

The broad utility and impact of crowdsourcing and human computation have
led to widespread interest from researchers spanning many different
academic disciplines and domains of study. As part of this diversity, some
researchers publish in journals, some in conferences, and others write
books. To help stay abreast of the latest, important research findings, the
Encore Track was created to provide a common forum to bring together such
diverse researchers.

We invite previously-published work for encore presentation at HCOMP, to
foster further interactions among researchers and further broaden the
dissemination and impact of important work in the field.

Industry and Practice Track

HCOMP seeks to advance human computation and crowdsourcing practice as well
as research, including engineers and practitioners to encourage dialogue
across disciplines and communities of practice. Participation in the
Industry & Practice Track offers a unique opportunity to showcase your
technology (by demo or presentation), network with other professionals and
researchers alike, and tap into HCOMP's incredible source of talent. The
Industry & Practice track allows practitioners to share and discuss
state-of-the-art practice in crowdsourcing and human computation processes
and technologies, whether in companies (big and small) or other
organizations (e.g., non-profits, governments, etc.).

To apply to participate in the Industry & Practice Track at HCOMP 2016,
please submit a written description of what you would like to present (up
to 2000 words). There is no required formatting or template to adhere to,
but submissions must be uploaded in PDF format.

Track Chairs:
- Anand Kulkani - Lead Genius
- Matt Manning - Information Evolution, Inc.
