Call For Papers


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.

The topics of interest of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

- Analyzing crowdsourcing worker behavior
- Cleaning data obtained from crowdsourcing
- Crowd database systems
- Data analytics with crowds
- Declarative languages for crowdsourcing
- Effective tagging in crowdsourcing
- Entity-resolution with crowds
- Incentive allocation for crowdsourcing
- Labeling objects with crowds
- Probabilistic modeling of the crowd
- Scalable crowdsourcing systems
- Sorts and joins with crowds
- Utilizing social network information to support crowdsourcing
- Voting strategies for crowdsourcing data
