Call for Tutorial

Call for Tutorial Proposals: IHCI 2023

IHCI 2023 invites tutorial presenters to submit proposals for informative and educational tutorials to be held as part of the conference program. Tutorials provide an opportunity to delve deep into specific topics related to Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and offer participants valuable insights, practical skills, and hands-on learning experiences. Here are the details and guidelines for submitting tutorial proposals:

We encourage tutorial proposals that offer valuable insights, practical skills, and hands-on learning experiences to participants. We look forward to receiving your proposals and hosting informative tutorials at IHCI 2023, where we aim to foster knowledge exchange and skill development in the field of Human-Computer Interaction.

Tutorial Description 

The focus of my talk is using crowdsourcing in the IoT-based modern systems. Each of these systems is a complex system of systems and the quality attributes that are to be considered in the design of these systems as well the sustainability of their operations varies based on its component systems as well as their functional integration. For example, a Surveillance System requires edge devices, edge computing as well as emergency response systems integrated along with people interacting with certain edge devices to trigger certain events. Another example is of a Transportation system that requires the predictive modeling for sustainable infrastructure design and integrated infrastructure components that may include self-driving cars, hyperloop, congestion pricing modeling and virtual traffic lights along with people adding real-time data deriving right inferences for self-adaptive system components. Howe [1] defines “Crowdsourcing” as the act of taking a task traditionally performed by a designated agent and outsourcing it by making an open call to an undefined but large group of people. It harnesses the collective intelligence or knowledge base of crowd's wisdom and in the right set of conditions, the crowd always tends to outperform any number of employees. Ensuring this right set of conditions is the key to success [5]. During this tutorial we will discuss the usage of crowdsourcing in the development process as well as the self-sustainability of IoT-based systems
