SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
This special session will serve as a forum to present and discuss collective intelligence and their applications in areas such as Group Decision Making, Consensus building, Knowledge Discovery and Integration, Social Networks and Multi-Agent Systems for Collaboration. It specifically aims to provide a forum for discussion, debate, and collaboration that focuses on ideas, trends, techniques, and recent advances in crowdsourcing and -sensing.
We invite original research contributions that advance the state of the art as well as position papers that pose a new direction or present a controversial point of view on these subjects and related fields.
The CICS topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
Agent Theory and Application for Crowdsourcing and Collective Intelligence
Cognitive Modeling of Agent Systems
Collective Intelligence Foundations and Applications
Cooperative Systems and Control
Crowdsensing Data Sets Handling, Processing and Visualization
Crowdsensing Quality of Information
Crowdsourcing, Smartsourcing, Crowdmapping
Crowdsourcing in the Cloud
Crowdsourcing and Gaming
Crowdsourcing for Recommender Systems
Crowdsourcing Pattern Recognition
Crowdsourcing Techniques for Multimedia
Data Mining for Social Networks
Fuzzy Systems and Information
Incentive Mechanisms for Human Participation
Information Retrieval and Integration
Web Intelligence and Interaction
Intelligent Transportation Systems
Logic in Intelligence
Natural Language Processing
Optimization and Swarm Intelligence
Privacy and Crowdsourcing
Probabilistic and Uncertain Reasoning
Semantic Web and Collective Intelligence
Smart Sensor Networks in Crowdsourcing
Soft Computing for Collective Intelligence
Social Media in Collective Intelligence Systems
Social Networks and Crowdsourcing
Social-network Analysis for Crowdsourcing
Social Coordination in Crowdsourcing
Social Sensing in Crowdsourcing
Trust Models for Collective Intelligence & Crowdsourcing
You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on the above and other topics related to Collective Intelligence, Crowd Sourcing and Collaboration. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submissions must follow IEEE’s double-column formatting guidelines and can be of any of the following types (to be specified clearly in the submission):
• Full papers (up to 8 pages)
• Short papers (up to 4 pages)
• Poster papers (please refer to http://cts2016.cisedu.info/1-call-for-papers/call-for-posters for posters submission details)
All papers must be submitted in PDF format, include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged an additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors’ email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s) although all authors are equally responsible for the manuscript. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the special session EasyChair paper submission site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ctscics2016. Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission. If the submission is for a poster paper or short paper, indicate that as well on the manuscript.
Only PDF files will be accepted, uploaded to the submission link above. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity and presentation, and references. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the CTS 2016 conference to present the paper at the special session.
Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the CTS 2016 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.
If you have any questions about paper submission or the special session, please contact the organizers.
