1st International Workshop on Social Media for Human Computation September 3, 2012, Amsterdam, co-located with ASE/IEEE Social Computing 2012 http://eipcm.org/sohuman2012/

************************** 1st CALL FOR PAPERS *****************************


Human computation is a paradigm considering humans as distributed task-solvers as a part of intelligent computational systems. It leverages human reasoning to solve complex tasks that are easy for humans but difficult for purely computational approaches. Effective realizations of this paradigm typically require participation of a large number of distributed users over the Internet. Though rarely explicitly addressed as such, social media and related technologies often provide the enabling methods and technologies for realization of such models. Examples of human computation applications include crowdsourcing marketplaces (e. g. Amazon Mechanical Turk), crowdsourcing service providers (e.g. Microtask, CrowdFlower) or games with a purpose. While the former provide coordination services for workers performing tasks for financial awards the latter motivate user participation through game-based scenarios.

The workshop invites researchers and practitioners from research and industry to discuss the challenges and opportunities of applying social media to developing and implementing new kinds of human computation systems and applications. We are interested in contributions that interrelate experiences from social media and human computation research.

This involves questions such as: * How can we design effective incentive systems for large-scale participation? * How do we design tasks at different levels of complexity that can still be solved reliably by individual contributions? * How can we use social media techniques for new models of coordination (e. g., social network analysis for task-routing)? * How can lessons from distributed problem-solving in collaborative systems and social networks lead to novel classes of human computation tasks and applications?

We particularly solicit contributions emphasizing social media and human computation as it is used in practice (i.e. in terms of specific problems and use cases) in diverse domains and types of applications, such as: – multimedia search, – enterprise and medical applications, – cultural heritage, – social data analysis or – open science. This also includes open social networks involving different user groups in heterogeneous settings (e. g., end-users, small and medium-sized businesses, scientists, policy makers, citizens). In this way, the workshop shall contribute to identifying best-practices and opportunities for new approaches to designing and implementing human computation systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): – Social media in human computation systems – Social incentive models for human computation – Social-network analysis for human computation – Applications of social media visualization to human computation – Social coordination for human computation – Social search and human computation – Trust models and reputation systems for human computation – Expertise-inference techniques and their application to task routing – Quality assurance in distributed human intelligence tasks – Social sensing in human computation – Domain-specific challenges and use cases in social media for human computation


The workshop will accept: * Regular research papers (6 pages) * Applications / Demonstrators (4 pages) * Position papers (2-4 pages)

Submissions must be formatted according to IEEE guidelines: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

All papers must be submitted using the EasyChair system at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sohuman2012

All submissions will be reviewed in a peer-review process by at least two members of the program committee.

IMPORTANT DATES * Abstract submission: Mai 27, 2012 (strongly recommended) * Paper submission: June 3, 2012 * Notification of acceptance: July 3, 2012 * Camera-ready papers: July 20, 2012 * Workshop date: September 3, 2012 (tentative, exact date TBC)


The workshop papers will be included in the proceedings of the main conference in a separate volume. Depending on the quality of the submissions there may also be an opportunity to publish extended versions of the papers as a special issue in a major journal.
