Special Section: Crowdsourced Data Management

Aims and Scope
Many important data management and analytics tasks cannot be completely addressed by automated processes. These tasks, such as entity resolution, sentiment analysis, and image recognition can be enhanced through the use of human cognitive ability. Crowdsourcing platforms are an effective way to harness the capabilities of people (i.e., the crowd) to apply human computation for such tasks. Thus, crowdsourced data management has become an area of increasing interest in research and industry. There still exist many challenges on crowdsourced data management, such as task decomposition and assignment, answer aggregation, and quality control. This special section aims to address these challenges to enable crowdsourced data management more effective and efficient.

Topics includes (but are not limited to the following):
* Fundamental crowdsourcing theory
* Task decomposition and assignment
* Answer aggregation
* Quality control
* Crowdsourcing operations
* Crowdsourcing optimization
* Crowdsourcing applications, such as data cleaning and data integration
* Crowdsourcing survey
