We invite you to attend the 8th AAAI Conference on Human Computation and Crowdsourcing (HCOMP 2020), which will be held on October 25-29 virtually at The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, The Netherlands. 

HCOMP is the home of the human computation and crowdsourcing community. It’s the premier venue for presenting latest findings from research and practice into frameworks, methods and systems that bring together people and machine intelligence to achieve better results.

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-centred 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’s conference theme is around the quality or qualities of human-annotated datasets. The programme features:

Doctoral Consortium track providing mentoring to PhD students
