Call for Papers

Researchers in various fields including economics, business administration, human resource management, information systems, computer science, sociology, psychology, innovation and law are invited to submit an extended abstract. Several sessions provide scholars with the opportunity to present their academic research. Presenters will receive valuable feedback from fellow researchers.

Call for Abstracts

For the symposium sessions, we especially invite submissions that relate to crowdworkers’ knowledge, skills and abilities, their motivation and their opportunities for gainful and meaningful work. Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to) the selection of retention of highly skilled crowdworkers, the provision of incentives through reputation mechanisms and price structures, the design of online tasks, attractive and efficient platform design, voice and participation for crowd and platform workers, job quality, health and satisfaction, income and working conditions, and the regulation of digital labor.

Please submit an extended abstract of 2-4 pages (plus references and attachments) by February 15, 2020 using the link at the symposium website www.upb.de/crowdwork. Authors will be informed about the outcome of their submission by March 15, 2020. In addition autors are encouraged to submit their abstract for possible publication in a special issue of the German Journal of Human Resource Management (https://journals.sagepub.com/home/gjh) to be published in February 2022.
