Civic Intelligence in an Uncertain and Threatening World:

Scientists, policy makers, citizens, professionals, mediators, public officials, ICT specialists, journalists, artists, policy consultants, and anybody having a strong civic orientation and perspective are welcome to participate!

Our workshop at the 2015 Community and Technology Conference resulted in a special section in AI & Society on the theme of Collective Intelligence for the Common Good. We aim to plan a follow on special issue resulting for the attendance to this year C&T2017 workshop.

Position Paper Submission

Participants are therefore encouraged to submit a brief position paper that addresses the following points:

  1. Why they're interested in advancing civic intelligence and collective intelligence for the common good;
  2. Why they think this is a crucial topic for our century’s socio-political and environmental challenges?
  3. What they'd like to get out of this workshop and what they have to contribute to the group — and in the longer run to the research agenda on this topic; and
  4. List 3-5 goals that they'd like to work for that would help build the civic intelligence socio-technological research and action program.

We will be working with these points to help develop collective documents that address the current and future research and action agenda on civic and collective intelligence for the common good.
