Join Us in San Diego, California
for HCOMP 2015!
The Third AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP-2015) is cross-disciplinary, 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-centered fields like human-computer interaction, psychology, design,
economics, management science, and social computing, and technical fields like databases, systems, information retrieval, optimization, vision, speech, robotics, machine learning, and planning.
The conference, to be held November 8-11 at the Kona Kai Marina & Resort in San Diego, California, USA, will
include presentations of new research, works-in-progress and demo sessions, and invited talks. (Submissions
to the non-archival work-in-progress and demo tracks are due July 21.) A day of workshops and tutorials will precede the main conference on November 8. Please consult the website for details about these and other programs, such as the second annual Doctoral Consortium.
Complete registration and hotel information will be available in August at www.humancomputation.com/2015.
The early registration deadline will be September 11. The deadline for hotel reservations at the Kona Kai is October 5, 2015. The discounted room rate of $149.00 per night (single/double) may not be available after this date.
