2017 Workshop on Hybrid Human-Machine Computing (HHMC 2017)

From Human Computation to Social Computing and Beyond

20-21 September 2017, University of Surrey, Guildford, UK

Workshop Program

The detailed program will be announced in July 2017 after all decisions on submitted abstracts and invited talks are firm. We however have a plan for the program to look like the following (long and short talks will be organised into the same sessions but short talks will take place after long ones).
