Crowd Science refers to the science that underlies online crowd-powered ecosystems. It focuses on the design and analysis of information processing systems in which humans participate to contribute their intelligence, effort, time and/or resources.

In 2016, the first International Conference on Crowd Science and Engineering (ICCSE) was held on the beautiful campus of The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada. This conference received 100 paper submissions from 12 countries. Among the 100 submissions, 27 papers have been selected as full papers to be presented at the conference. ICCSE’16 offered great opportunities for delegates to interact and connect at daily luncheons, morning and afternoon coffee breaks, and a conference banquet on July 28, 2016.

In 2017, ICCSE will take place from 6 to 9 July 2017 at Tsinghua University, Beijing, China. In this conference, academics, industry practitioners and policy makers will gather to explore the transformative potential of crowd science research and how to engineer efficient systems that combine the respective strengths of humans and machines to open up new possibilities.

ICCSE’17 now invites you to participate and contribute to this international forum for the dissemination and exchange of up-to-date scientific information on theoretical and applied areas of CSE, through the following modes of communication: Plenary/Keynote Presentation, Technical Sessions and Demo/Poster Sessions.
