*************** Call for Papers ***************
Human­-in-­the-­loop is a model of interaction where a machine process and one
or more humans have an iterative interaction. In this paradigm the user has
the ability to heavily influence the outcome of the process by providing
feedback to the system as well as the opportunity to grab different
perspectives about the underlying domain and understand the step by step
machine process leading to a certain outcome. Amongst the current major
concerns in Artificial Intelligence research are being able to explain and
understand the results as well as avoiding bias in the underlying data that
might lead to unfair or unethical conclusions. Typically, computers are
fast and accurate in processing vast amounts of data. People, however, are
creative and bring in their perspectives and interpretation power. Bringing
humans and machines together creates a natural symbiosis for accurate
interpretation of data at scale. The goal of this workshop is to bring
together researchers and practitioners in various areas of AI (i.e.,
Machine Learning, NLP, Computational Advertising, etc.) to explore new
pathways of the human­-in-­the-loop paradigm.

*************** Research Topics ***************
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Human Factors:

** Human Factors in Crowdsourcing
** Social computing
** Ethics of Crowdsourcing
** Gamification techniques
* Data Collection:
** Data annotations task design
** Data collection for specific domains (e.g. with privacy constraints)
** Data privacy
** Multi­-linguality aspects
* Machine Learning:
** Dealing with sparse and noisy annotated data
** Crowdsourcing for Active Learning
** Statistics and learning theory
* Applications:
** Healthcare
** NLP technologies

** Sentiment analysis

*************** Submission ********************
All submissions must be written in English. We accept the following formats
of submissions:

Full paper with a maximum of 12 pages including references.
Short paper with a maximum of 6 pages including references.
Two formats are possible for the submission: PDF and HTML. PDF submissions
must be formatted according to the information for LNCS Authors (
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.). We would
like to encourage you to submit your paper as HTML, in which case you need
to submit a zip archive containing an HTML file and all used resources. If
you are new to HTML submission these are good places to start:

dokieli is a client-side editor for decentralised article publishing,
annotations and social interactions. It is compliant with the Linked
Research initiative. Example papers using LNCS and ACM:

Research Articles in Simplified HTML (RASH) format: documentation and
stylesheets at https://github.com/essepuntato/rash
In order to check if your HTML submission is compliant with the page limit
constraint, please use one of the LNCS layouts and printing/storing it as
PDF. Please submit your contributions electronically in PDF or HTML format
to EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=humliswc2018)
Accepted papers will be published online via CEUR-WS.
