Dear JESSE members,

My name is Seungwon Yang, a PhD student in the Dept. of Computer Science, 
Virginia Tech.   I would like to recruit about 5 study participants, who would 
like to help with labeling keywords (or topics) for 30 textual documents 
(mainly extracted text of news articles about a disaster). All the 
communications/conducting study are done online.

The results from five completed tasks are used to compute inter-indexer 
consistency values among humans, and also to evaluate an automatic topic 
labeling algorithm's performance against human indexers.

Upon completion of the tasks, $30 Amazon gift card is provided as compensation. 
For more information such as example documents, please see:
(1) Recruitment letter

(2) Study abstract

If you are interested in participation or have a question, please email me at 
<[log in to unmask]>. Thank you very much,

Sincerely, Seungwon Yang
PhD student
