Call For Papers

The fifth IEEE Workshop on
Human-in-the-Loop Methods and Future of Work
in BigData (HMData 2021) co-located with IEEE Bigdata 2021 (online)
Dec.15th (Planned)

HMData workshop, which originally started as the "Human-Machine
collaboration in BigData" workshop, will investigate the
opportunities and challenges in human machine collaboration in
work with bigdata, which are described by two terms: Human-in-
the-Loop Methods and Future of Work. Human-in-the-Loop is a
term focusing on the employer's viewpoint while Future of Work
focuses more on worker's viewpoint, in both of which the division
of labor among humans and machines is a key issue. This area is
likely to be heavily AI driven, and we intend to invite papers
covering the following aspects, (a) Capturing human capabilities
through intelligent models and how to adapt them through changing
perceptions, needs, and skills. (2) High level tools that provide
the ability for all stakeholders in the new ecosystem, including
regulators for policies and AI workers, to specify their
requirements. (3) system design and engineering of job platforms
for collection, storage, retrieval, and analysis of data deluge
about workers, jobs, and their activities. (4) Benchmarking and
the development of appropriate metrics to measure system
performance as well as human aspects, such as satisfaction,
capital advancement, and equity.

We welcome any interesting ideas and results on any relevant
topics, but we also encourage submitting papers on new
projects inspired by the COVID-19 crisis, such as those on
human-in-the-loop solutions in the pandemic, those on re-evaluating
how we organize labor and how we share work with machines in the
future. To make the workshop an attractive place for those people,
we solicit practitioner papers as well as research papers, in order
to facilitate discussion among researchers who know solutions and
practitioners who know problems. We also would like to make the
place valuable for young researchers. All papers accepted for the
workshop will be included in the Workshop Proceedings published by
the IEEE Computer Society Press, made available at the Conference.


This workshop covers a wide range of topics of human-machine
collaboration in work with bigdata. Keywords include: crowdsourcing,
collaborative recommendation, crowdsensing, workflow model for
humans and machines, incentives, human-assisted bigdata analysis,
bigdata-human interaction, human-machine collaboration in real-world
applications (such as natural disaster response, education, and citizen
science), and ELSI in Human-in-the-loop systems and Future of Work.

We expect submissions to address some of the following issues:
- capturing human characteristics and capabilities,
- stakeholder requirement specification,
- social processes around the human-in-the-loop systems,
- platforms and ecosystems,
- computation capabilities, and
- benchmarks and metrics for human-in-the-loop systems and Future of Work


Lora Aroyo (Google)

Bio: Lora Aroyo is a Full Professor in Computer Science, currently
working as a visiting research faculty at Google, NYC. Previously
she was a visiting scholar at the Columbia Data Science Institute
at Columbia University, New York. She is also Chief of Science for
a NY-based startup Tagasauris, which works on hybrid machine learning
and human-assisted computing strategies to enrich multimedia (e.g. video,
images, and text) with meaningful information about its content, and
ultimately improve video search and discovery. Lora is an active member
of the Human Computation, User Modeling & Semantic Web communities.
She is president of the User Modeling community UM Inc, which serves
as a steering committee for the ACM Conference Series “User Modeling,
Adaptation and Personalization” (UMAP) sponsored by SIGCHI and SIGWEB.
She is also a member of the ACM SIGCHI conferences board. Since 2010
she has actively worked towards shaping the concept of “User-Centric
Data Science“, which ultimately led to the forming of and heading
the User-centric Data Science group at the Department of Computer
Science, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands. As an expert
in user-centric data science, Lora conceived the vision of an
user-centric experimental lab for computer science researchers at
the VU University Amsterdam. She headed the team that made it possible
in 2010 to open VU INTERTAIN Lab – the first of its kind in an academic
environment. Throughout her carrier, Lora was a principal investigator
of a large number of research projects, she organized conferences,
workshops, and tutorials to bring together methods and tools from
human computation, linked (open) data, data science & human-computer
interaction with the goal of building hybrid human-AI systems for
augmenting both machine and human intelligence for understanding text,
images, and videos with humans-in-the-loop and machines-in-the-loop.
Her research projects focussing on semantic search, recommendation
systems, personalized access to online multimedia collections have
a major impact and established her as a recognized leader in human
computation techniques for specific domains, such as digital humanities,
cultural heritage, and interactive TV.

Submission Categories

Research Papers (*) (long presentation): They report significant and
original results relevant to the scope of this workshop. We solicit
innovative or thought-provoking work but they do not necessarily
have to reach the level of completion. The expected length is between
4 and 6 pages. The maximum length is 10 pages, though the paper
should be commensurate with the size of the contribution.

Practitioner papers (*)(long presentation): They present interesting
problems that require human-in-the-loop solutions in a variety of
application domains, or present the interesting results of applying
existing human-in-the-loop solutions to their domains. The expected
length is between 4 and 6 pages. The maximum length is 10 pages, though
the paper should be commensurate with the size of the contribution.

Project-in-progress papers (short presentation): They present the goals,
challenges, and preliminary results of research or real-world projects
in progress. The maximum length is 3 pages.

(*) Some of the papers submitted to the research or practitioner paper
categories may be accepted as project-in-progress papers and allotted
to short presentation slots.

Papers should be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings
Manuscript Formatting Guidelines in the IEEE Bigdata 2021 CFP page
