Summer School on Crowdsourcing and IoT

The summer school focuses on combining objective measurement data from mobile sensors, like smart devices or IoT devices, and subjective ratings. This enables assessing environmental factors in QoE studies and adding context information to sensor data measurements. The program of the summer school includes a general introduction in the research areas of crowdsourcing and mobile sensing. Best practices for subjective assessments will be given as well as selected Topics on IoT. The statistical evaluation of measurements and subjective user studies is taken into account.

The summer school takes place in Würzburg, Germany from July 31st to August 4th, 2017, the programm can be found at Program. The participation is fee of charge. The application for the summer school is now open and closes July 10th 2017 or if the maximum number of participants (30) is reached

We thank Microworkers for sponsoring US$1500 of crowdsourcing credit at the Microworkers crowdsourcing platform for the working groups of the Summer School. This sponsorship makes it possible to run real crowdsourcing experiments and gives the opportunity to advance and practically investigate research ideas in small group work.
