*** CFP for the Workshop on“Weaving Relations of Trust in Crowd Work: Transparency and Reputation across Platforms” ***

Co-located with Web Science Conference 2016, May 22, in Hannover (Germany) 


Dear crowdsourcing researcher,

Paid crowdsourcing is growing fast, but how can we make sure platform-based work is fair and of high quality? Weaving relations of trust through transparency and managing reputation, as in the traditional workplace, is key to improving crowd work environments and user experience.

Are you working on something related? We would love to hear about it!

What to submit

We welcome the following types of scientific contributions:

  • experimental papers
  • demo papers
  • position papers

We have a list of topics in which we are particularly interested:

When to submit

One week extension! New deadline: 26.03, 23:59 Hawaii time.

Submissions are due March 19, 23:59 Hawaii time.

How to submit

All submissions must be in English, no longer than 2 pages, formatted in the style of ACM format and submitted as a PDF via EasyChair. Submissions are not anonymous.

Acceptance and publication

Submissions should propose original ideas or present new results. Authors may submit a paper related to a previous publication, but submissions must contain a substantial extension or modification of previous work.

Submissions will be reviewed for quality, originality, and potential impact by our program committee and by crowd workers. A “crowd award” will be given to one paper based on the judgment of crowd workers.

Accepted submissions will not be included in the conference proceedings, but they will be posted to the workshop web site.

We encourage authors to present their work in the workshop. However, if due to a major issue none of the authors are able to attend the workshop, they will be able to present remotely (e.g. via Google Hangouts).

If you have questions or suggestions, please contact us at
