HCOMP 2021

The Ninth AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing

  November 14–18, 2021     Virtual   @hcomp_conf#HCOMP2021

Welcome to HCOMP 2021!

The 9th AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2021) will be held November 14–18th as a virtual conference.

HCOMP is the premier venue for disseminating the latest research findings on human computation and crowdsourcing. While artificial intelligence (AI) and human-computer interaction (HCI) represent traditional mainstays of the conference, HCOMP believes strongly in fostering and promoting broad, interdisciplinary research. Our field is particularly unique in the diversity of disciplines it draws upon and contributes to, including human-centered qualitative studies and HCI design, social computing, artificial intelligence, economics, computational social science, 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 2021 builds on a successful history of past meetings: eight HCOMP conferences (2013–2020) 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).
