1st Crowdworking Symposium

The Crowdworking Symposium is an annual event that was initiated by Prof. Dr. Lars Hornuf. On July 4-5, 2019 it will for the first time take place at the University of Bremen. The symposium offers academics and practitioners a platform to exchange ideas about the latest developments in crowd work as well as for networking. Moreover, it is a forum meant to inform legislators on the European and national level on a scientific basis with regard to new legislative proposals or legal reform projects. Each year we define a research focus, which addresses crucial topics regarding crowdsourcing, crowd work, cloud work, gig work, online freelancing, and other forms of on-demand labor from an interdisciplinary perspective. In 2019, the topic of the symposium is “Understanding Digital Labor Markets.” Several workshops provide scholars with the opportunity to present their academic research. As this year’s keynote speaker, we welcome Prof. Dr. Jan Marco Leimeister, who is a professor of information systems and director of the Institute for Information Management at the University of St. Gallen. In his keynote speech, he will talk about: Understanding a New Type of Digital Labor: How the Nature of Work Affects Satisfaction and Identification Among Crowd Workers
