Novel web-based socio-technical systems require incentives for efficient management and motivation of human workers taking part
in complex collaborations. Incentive management techniques used in
existing crowdsourcing platforms are not suitable for intellectuallychallenging tasks; platform-specific solutions prevent both workers from comparing working conditions across different platforms as well as platform owners from attracting skilled workers. In this paper we present PRINGL, a domain-specific language for programming complex incentive strategies. It promotes re-use of proven incentive logic and allows composing of complex incentives suitable for novel types of socio-technical systems. We illustrate its applicability and expressiveness and discuss its properties and limitations.
