Symposium on Biases in Human Computation and Crowdsourcing
9 November 2021 - 12 November 2021
Organised by The Academic Fringe Festival and CHI Netherlands
10 NOVEMBER 2021 09:00 TILL 12 NOVEMBER 2021 17:00 – LOCATION: ONLINE, HOSTED FROM DELFT IN THE NETHERLANDS
Human Computation and Crowdsourcing have become ubiquitous in the world of algorithm augmentation and data management. However, humans have various cognitive biases that influence the way they make decisions, remember information, and interact with machines. It is thus important to identify human biases and analyse their effect on complex hybrid systems. On the other hand, the potential interaction with a large pool of human contributors gives the opportunity to detect and handle biases in existing data and systems.
The goal of this symposium is to analyse 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.
An interdisciplinary approach is often required to capture the broad effects that these processes have on systems and people, and at the same time to improve model interpretability and systems’ fairness.
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.
We welcome the submission of research papers and abstracts which describe original work that has not been submitted or currently under review, has not been previously published nor accepted for publication elsewhere, in any other journal or conference.
The submission deadlines are:
- Full Papers and Short papers due: 26 August 2021
- Abstracts due: 2 September 2021
- Notifications: 22 October 2021
- Conference: 10-12 November 2021
