• Sponsorship Overview

Sponsors play a vital role in ensuring HCOMP's continuing success. By keeping registration fees affordable for academic researchers, especially students, sponsorships from corporations, universities, and other institutions help sustain HCOMP's economic viability and proud tradition of strong participation each year.

Since HCOMP 2020 will be held as a fully virtual event, all sessions will be recorded and made widely accessible after the conference. This presents unique opportunities to sponsors, with a great potential to reach an extremely large audience online. To ensure that you can make the most out of this opportunity, we have updated the benefits at different sponsorship levels as described below. We are confident that this will be a mutually enriching experience, and look forward to inviting your support.

Whether you want to showcase your technology to the crowdsourcing community or tap into this incredible source of talent, HCOMP is the premier venue for sponsors to reach this unique audience of researchers, industry practitioners, & media, combining social scientists and influencers with technological innovators and adopters.

HCOMP is organized under the aegis of AAAI. To become a sponsor, please contact us at hcompconference@gmail.com.

For confirmed sponsors, please fill out this form by September 25, 2020.
