We invite five kinds of paper submissions, and we invite all to take part in discussions with or without papers. The paper types are as follows. :
For any form of paper or poster, an abstract must be submitted to the EasyChair Designing Technologies to Support Human Problem Solving workshop submission site by the end of 6 July 2018.
Completed papers must be submitted as PDF files to the EasyChair Designing Technologies to Support Human Problem Solving workshop submission site by the end of 13 July 2018. Use an IEEE Conference template to format your submission.
Submitted paper abstracts and PDFs can be updated at any time through
the end of day on 13 July 2018 (anytime on Earth). Authors are encouraged
to submit drafts that can be updated until the 13 July deadline.
Drafts should be indicated by putting
Draft: at the
beginning of the title in the paper.
Submissions are not anonymous, so do not anonymize your papers.
Accepted papers will normally be published in arXiv.org. However, authors may indicate with their submission that if accepted, their paper not be published there and only made available to workshop attendees.
The purpose of the workshop is to exchange ideas and address a set of questions to help participants gain new insights into the design of systems that help users (typically in groups or communities) solve and/or understand complex problems, such as instances of global-challenges and wicked problems. Such problems include aspects of climate change, drug-resistant diseases, nuclear proliferation, fake news, global health, clean water, and urban homelessness. The increasing sophistication of software systems also makes complex problem solving increasingly important in software engineering. Recent technology developments suggest new approaches to integrated systems that combine human-centered computing, crowdsourcing, artificial intelligence and machine learning, sensor networks, and computer-supported collaborative work.
