This full-day workshop is aimed at an interdisciplinary audience of researchers and practitioners involved or interested in the Semantic Web, and coming from fields as diverse as machine learning, social computing, natural language processing, data integration, HCI. The workshop also targets practitioners who make use of Web-based information sharing applications in enterprise environments. The workshop will be suitable both for researchers who have begun to use crowdsourcing as one of the components of their semantic web toolkits, as well as for those who are only considering these ideas and want to learn more.
