*** HCOMP 2020 is going virtual ***
Over the last months, we have been closely monitoring the ongoing situation around Covid-19. Given the measures that have been put into place around the world, and the uncertainty about how the situation will evolve between now and the end of October, the HCOMP organising committee and AAAI have decided that in 2020 HCOMP will be a virtual conference. Our main concerns are with the members of our community and the challenges they might be facing in these unprecedented times. More details here: https://www.humancomputation.com/hcomp_goes_virtual.html.

*** HCOMP 2020: Second Call for ''Blue Sky Ideas'' Track ***

IMPORTANT DATES - All times are midnight CEST (Amsterdam time)

  • August 7, 2020: Paper due
  • August 20, 2020: Notification of acceptance
  • September 20, 2020: Final camera-ready papers due


In cooperation with the Computing Community Consortium (CCC), HCOMP 2020 invites submissions to a special “Blue Sky Ideas” track. The emphasis of this track will be on visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in research that are outside of the current mainstream topics of the field.

Submissions will be judged on the extent to which they expand the possibilities and horizons of the field or challenge existing assumptions prevalent in the field.

Submissions to this track should follow the same formatting guidelines as submissions to the research track, but are limited to at most four pages in length for both submission and final publication. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and on the web.

To encourage researchers to present truly visionary concepts, the CCC is offering prizes for up to three top papers in this special track: first prize $1000, second prize $750, and third prize $500, to be awarded.

Note that paper submissions in this track will not receive full-fledged reviews as in the other tracks at HCOMP 2020. All submissions however will be screened to ensure that they meet the required criteria of being visionary in nature. A committee of experts will adjudicate the top-3 submissions to this track and nominate them for awards sponsored by CCC.

Questions? Please contact the Blue Sky Ideas track Chairs.
