Please consider submitting to our minitrack entitled: Collective Intelligence and Crowds: Structure, Roles, and Identity
This minitrack is co-chaired by Pnina Fichman and Don Steiny, and is part of the Digital and Social Media track.
The conference is on Kauai, Jan 5-8.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 organizations. In addition, we want papers that analyze social interaction as a way of better understanding underlying social structures, and in particular the social construction of identity and roles. In sum, we are open to a wide range of research that addresses relations between people, collectives, and machines, as well as the products produced as a result.
If you have any questions about the appropriateness of a paper, feel free to send an informal description to any of us.
If you are interested in reviewing, regardless of whether you are submitting, we will appreciate your help; let us know how many papers you can handle and we will put you on the list.
In addition, Kalle Lyytinen and I will be repeating our workshop on Collective Intelligence and Crowdsourcing on the afternoon of the first day. Mary Gray from Microsoft Research will be our featured speaker, and we welcome any ideas or contributions you would like to make to the workshop: we are going to focus on industrial aspects of crowds.
Finally, I hope to see some of you at Collective Intelligence 2015, May 31-June 2 in Santa Clara.
