January 3-6, 2018

We are looking for papers that analyze collective intelligence, knowledge
creation, and crowdsourcing. We also encourage the submission of papers
that design and implement technologies that create new kinds of
collectives. For example, papers that consider how machine learning and

wide range of research that addresses relations between people,
collectives, and machines, as well as the artifacts produced as a result.

The deadline is June 15, 2017. Feel free to communicate with any of the
