GOALS OF THE WORKSHOP
----------------------------------------
This workshop invites researchers and practitioners from different
disciplines to explore the challenges and opportunities of applying
social media to designing novel applications of collective intel-
ligence, with a special focus on crowdsourcing and human computation.

We are particularly interested in contributions that consider
crowdsourcing and human computation in the broader context:
as specific instantiations of collective intelligence and social
computing on the web. How can the experience gained from the design
of crowdsourcing applications inform the development of new
approaches to collective intelligence? And vice versa: what
lessons from the broader domain of collective intelligence
can inform the design of new kinds of systems for crowdsourcing
and human computation?

Both crowdsourcing and human computation consider humans as
distributed task-solvers, leveraging human reasoning to solve complex
tasks that are easy for individuals but difficult for purely
computational approaches (human computation) or for traditional
organizational work arrangements (crowdsourcing). Though rarely explicitly
addressed as such, social media and related technologies often provi
