Summer School

The future of crowdsourcing in developing countries -technical, design, social, and ethical implications.

About the School

Crowdsourcing is an emerging trend that promises to transform collaboration and creation, in several domains: creative work, research, business, cultural cooperation, etc. As such it represents a field of immense interest for research but also a tool that students can leverage during their studies. We organize a summer school to address the technical, design and social aspects of crowdsourcing particularly for the Chinese context. The school will be held at Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, located in Suzhou, China on the 10th to the 14th of July 2017.

Application deadline: 10 June 2017

Invited Speakers:

Prof. Yong Yue, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
Prof. Vassilis Kostakos, University of Melbourne
Dr. Ioanna Lykourentzou, Luxembourg Institute of Science & Technology
