June 1-3, 2016
New York University, New York, NY
The annual interdisciplinary conference that brings together researchers from the academy, businesses, non-profits, governments and the world at large to share insights and ideas from a variety of fields relevant to understanding and designing collective intelligence in its many forms.
- human computation
- social computing
- wisdom of crowds (e.g., prediction markets)
- group memory and extended cognition
- collective decision making and problem-solving
- participatory and deliberative democracy
- animal collective behavior
- organizational design and strategy
- public policy design (e.g., regulatory reform)
- ethics of collective intelligence (e.g., “digital sweatshops”)
- computational models of group search and optimization
- emergence and evolution of intelligence
- new technologies for making groups smarter
Submissions of two types are invited:
- Reports of original results
- Demonstrations of tools/technology
All submissions should be formatted as four-page extended abstracts (up to 3 pages for content and 1 page for references).
All submission should be converted to PDF at the time of submission. Please click here to submit your the document: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ci20160
In order to encourage a diversity of innovative ideas from a variety of fields, submissions may refer to work that is recently published, under review elsewhere, or in preparation, and may link to up to one publicly accessible paper for the purpose of describing the work in detail. However, submissions will be evaluated solely on the submitted abstract, which must therefore comprise an entirely self-contained description of the work.
After review by the Program Committee, a subset of submitted abstracts will be invited for oral presentation with additional presentation as posters and/or demos. A second subset will also be invited exclusively for presentation as posters and/or demos.
Authors will not receive detailed feedback from the review process, just an accept/reject decision. The main criteria will be: 1) whether the subject matter is a good fit for the Collective Intelligence conference; 2) whether there are interesting claims made with a promise to present evidence or non-obvious arguments in support of them. The review committee will not assess the validity of the evidence or arguments.
Accepted submissions will be compiled into a single report which will be made available to conference participants. We emphasize that abstracts that are distributed to conference participants are not intended to be considered archival publications or to preclude submission of the reported work to archival journals; however, we cannot guarantee that certain journals do not have policies precluding the distribution of extended abstracts. Accepted abstracts will be included as submitted (i.e., submissions should be camera-ready).
If your abstract is accepted for presentation or poster session, at least one author has to commit to attending the conference.
