HCOMP 2022

The Tenth AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing

  November 6–10, 2022     Virtual   @hcomp_conf#HCOMP2022

Welcome to HCOMP 2022!

The 10th AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2022) will be held November 6-10th 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.

This year, we especially encourage work that generates new insights into the connections between human computation and crowdsourcing, and humanity. For example, how to support the well-being and welfare of participants of human-in-the-loop systems? How to promote diversity and inclusion of the crowd workforce? How can crowdsourcing be used for social good, e.g., to address societal challenges and improve people’s lives? How can human computation and crowdsourcing studies advance the design of trustworthy, ethical, and responsible AI? How can crowd science inform the development of AI that extends human capabilities and augments human intelligence?

HCOMP 2022 builds on a successful history of past meetings: nine HCOMP conferences (2013–2021) 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).
