About DBCrowd 2013

Crowdsourcing systems, such as Amazon Mechanical Turk and CrowdFlower, utilize human power to perform difficult tasks, such as entity resolution, search, filtering, image matching, or clustering. The important issues of collecting and managing the large volume of data in these applications have attracted plenty of attention from the database community. The goal of DBCrowd 2013, the First VLDB Workshop on Databases and Crowdsourcing, is to provide an avenue for database researchers and practitioners to disseminate and explore new research directions and promising results at the confluence of crowdsourcing and database areas.
