BHCC 2022 - Call For Papers
The Fourth Symposium On Biases In Human Computing And Crowdsourcing (https://bhcc2022.org/) will take place in Rome (Italy), on 12 - 14 October 2022.

The goal of this symposium is to analyze both existing human biases in hybrid systems, and methods to manage bias via crowdsourcing and human computation. We will discuss different types of biases, measures, and methods to track bias, as well as methodologies to prevent and solve bias.

We will provide a framework for discussion among scholars, practitioners, and other interested parties, including industry, crowd workers, requesters, and crowdsourcing platform managers. We expect contributions combining ideas from different disciplines, including computer science, psychology, economics, and social sciences.

Topics Of Interest

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Biases in Human Computation and Crowdsourcing

  • Human sampling bias

  • Effect of cultural, gender, and ethnic biases

  • Effect of human in the loop training and past experiences

  • Effect of human expertise vs interest

  • Bias in experts vs. bias in crowdsourcing

  • Bias in outsourcing vs bias in crowdsourcing

  • Bias in task selection

  • Task assignment/recommendation for reducing bias

  • Effect of human engagement on the bias

  • Responsibility and ethics in human computation and bias management

  • Preventing bias in crowdsourcing and human computation

  • Creating awareness of cognitive biases among human agents

  • Measuring and addressing ambiguities and biases in human annotation

  • Human factors in AI

  • Using Human Computation and Crowdsourcing for Bias Understanding and Management

  • Biases in Human-in-the-loop systems

  • Identifying new types of cognitive bias in data or content

  • Measuring bias in data or content

  • Removing bias in data or content

  • Dealing with algorithmic bias

  • Fake news detection

  • Diversification of sources by means

  • Provenance and traceability

  • Long-term crowd engagement

Submission Guidelines

We welcome the submission of research papers and abstracts which describe original work that has not been submitted or is currently under review, has not been previously published nor accepted for publication elsewhere, in any other journal or conference.

Submissions of the research papers must be in English, in PDF format, and be in the current CEUR-WS single-column conference format.

We will follow CEUR-WS guidelines, meet their preconditions, and expect to get the proceedings published. However, note that there is no guarantee that our volume will get published at CEUR-WS.

We welcome the submission of the following types of contributions:

  • Full papers should be at most 10 pages in length (including figures, tables, appendices, and references);

  • Short papers should be at most 5 pages in length (including figures, tables, appendices, and references);

  • Abstracts should be at most 1 page in length (including figures, tables, appendices, and references), should contain just a title and the abstract, and should detail demos or relevant work or ideas which are under development. They can not contain references.

We implement a double-blind review process. Submissions must be anonymous and the submission must be made via EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bhcc2022.
