LinkLog: Collective Intelligence 2012

We seek papers about behavior that is both collective and intelligent. By collective, we mean groups of individual actors, including, for example, people, computational agents, and organizations. By intelligent, we mean that the collective behavior of the group exhibits characteristics such as, for example, perception, learning, judgment, or problem solving.

With a fascinating set of topics, this conference promises to be a great one.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • human computation
  • social computing
  • crowd sourcing
  • wisdom of crowds (e.g., prediction markets)
  • group memory and problem-solving
  • deliberative democracy
  • animal collective behavior
  • organizational design
  • public policy design (e.g., regulatory reform)
  • ethics of collective intelligence (e.g., “digital sweatshops”)
  • computational models of group search and optimization
  • emergence and evolution of intelligence
  • new technologies for making groups smarter
