The 2nd international conference on human-centered artificial intelligence (Computing4Human) will be held in Danang, Vietnam (and virtual conference), which is organized by the University of Da Nang. Computing4Human begun initially under the name of the international workshop on computational humanities and social sciences in 2020.

     The rapid development of artificial intelligence (AI) techniques and their applications has remarkably changed how we live and how our societies operate. On the last event, we have focused on these changes in the humanities and social sciences fields. The last event covered embracing domain knowledge of humanities and social sciences fields into AI methodologies, solving research issues in these fields by employing AI techniques, and social and humane issues caused by the novel AI techniques and applications. However, the influence of AI's advent is not easy to be investigated by only perspectives adopted from the humanities and social sciences. For example, we need city planning experts to discuss further research directions of smart infrastructure or data-driven city planning, and smart healthcare research is difficult to be conducted without comments from medical doctors.

     Therefore, this year, we aim at gathering scholars who deal with AI techniques in various domains. We remove boundaries of the area of interest of this conference and extend the area to artificial intelligence methodologies for every user-intimate (human-centered) application and novel issues caused by the advent of AI techniques in every domain.

    The main purpose of Computing4Human 2021 is to search for unexplored areas of human-centered AI applications and develop advanced methodologies for these areas by encouraging open discussions between scholars in AI and researchers with domain expertise. We founded the regular tracks to cover the various domains of human-centered AI applications. Although the tracks merely present recently popular issues, we do not restrict topics of potential submissions.
