Event description:

Collective Intelligence 2014
MIT, Cambridge, MA
June 10-12, 2014
This interdisciplinary conference seeks to bring together researchers from a variety of fields relevant to understanding and designing collective intelligence of many types.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
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
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

The conference will consist of Invited talks from prominent researchers in different areas related to collective intelligence including:

Linda Argote, Organizational Behavior and Theory @ Carnegie Mellon
Emily Falk, Communications @ University of Pennsylvania
Henry Farrell, Political Science and International Affairs @ George Washington
David Gibson, Sociology @ Notre Dame
Niki Kittur, Human Computer Interaction Institute @ Carnegie Mellon
Jens Krause, Biology and Ecology of Fish @ Humboldt University Berlin
Karim Lakhani, Business Administration @ Harvard
Helene Landemore, Political Science @ Yale
Naomi Leonard, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering @ Princeton
Jason Matheny, Open Source Indicators Program
David Mendonca, Industrial and Systems Engineering @ RPI
Barbara Mellers, Psychology @ University of Pennsylvania
Radhika Nagpal, Computer Science @ Harvard
Beth Noveck, Wagner School of Public Service @ NYU, Founder & Director of the Governance Lab
Van Parunak, Chief Scientist @ Soar Technology
Stephen Pratt, School of Life Sciences @ Arizona State
Betsy Sparrow, Psychology @ Columbia
Kate Starbird, Human Centered Design & Engineering @ University of Washington
Lyle Ungar, Computer & Information Science @ University of Pennsylvania
Luis von Ahn, Computer Science @ Carnegie Mellon, Founder of reCAPTCHA & duolingo

Oral presentations (see below)

Poster/Demo sessions (see below)

“Ignite” sessions in which practitioners (e.g. policy makers) connect with researchers around collective-intelligence-based solutions to real-world problems

Submissions of two types are invited:
Reports of original research results
Demonstrations of tools/technology

All submissions should be formatted as three-page extended abstracts (see www.collectiveintelligence2014.org for Word and Latex templates), and should be submitted at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/CI2014

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 papers will be invited for oral presentation, as well as for presentation as posters and/or demos. A second subset will also be invited exclusively for presentation as posters and/or demos.

Accepted submissions (including for posters and demos) will be compiled into a single report which will be made available on http://arxiv.org. We emphasize that published abstracts 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 publishing of extended abstracts.

Authors will not receive detailed feedback from the review process, and accepted abstracts will be included as submitted (i.e. submissions should be camera-ready).

Extended abstract submission deadline: January 15, 2014
Notification of acceptance / rejection: February 15, 2014
Conference dates: June 10-12, 2014
