  • Welcome to HCOMP 2016!

The 4th AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2016) will be held October 30-November 3 in Austin, TX (USA) at the AT&T Executive Conference Center, on campus at the University of Texas at Austin.

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 digital humanities, policy, and ethics. We promote the exchange of advances in human computation and crowdsourcing not only among researchers, but also engineers and practitioners, to encourage dialogue across disciplines and communities of practice.

HCOMP 2016 builds on a successful history of past meetings: three HCOMP conferences (2013-2015) and four earlier workshops, held at the AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (2011-2012), and the ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (2009-2010). Past proceedings are available online, as well as a list of winners of past paper awards, and pictures from HCOMP 2013.
