HCOMP 2016 registration open.

Please join us for the Fourth AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2016), to be held October 30-November 3 at the AT&T Executive Conference Center on the campus at the University of Texas at Austin, Austin, Texas, USA. HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest research findings on crowdsourcing and human computation. 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. This 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, economics and the social sciences, all the way to cultural heritage, digital humanities, ethics, and policy. The HCOMP conference is aimed at promoting the exchange of advances in human computation and crowdsourcing among not only researchers, but also engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across a spectrum of disciplines and communities of practice.

The theme for HCOMP 2016 is interaction --interaction between people and technology that is foundational to human computation; interaction between theoretical foundations, experimental work, and engineering; interaction between the computational, scientific, and social applications of crowdsourcing; and interaction between diverse disciplines and perspectives, within our community and beyond.

The program will include keynote addresses by lyad Rahwan (MIT), Nathan Schneider (University of Colorado Boulder), and Ashish Goel (Stanford University). In addition, on the first day of the conference, HCOMP-16 will feature a Doctoral Consortium and a tutorial on Crowdsourced Data Processing: Industry and Academic Perspectives, as well as three workshops: CrowdCamp; Human Computation for Image and Video Analysis (GroupSight); and Mathematical Foundations of Human Computation.

The main technical program has been expanded to include two new tracks on Industry and Practice and Encore Papers. Past tracks on works-in-progress and demos will also continue.

Complete registration and hotel information is available at The late registration deadline is October 7, 2016. The deadline for hotel reservations at the AT&T Conference Center is October 3, 2016. The discounted room rate of $185 per night (single/ double) may not be available after this date.
