22nd International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM)
Burlingame, CA, USA. Oct 27 – Nov 1, 2013

The ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) is the premier international conference on topics at the confluence of the information retrieval, databases, and knowledge management. Running annually since 1992, it currently attracts over 800 participants, including the best talent in industry and academia. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development of future knowledge and information systems, and to shape future research directions through the publication of applied and theoretical research findings of the highest quality. The program will foster collaboration and bridge the academic- commercial gap in the database, information retrieval, and knowledge management communities. Attendees will hear about recent research results and be able to network with luminaries, researchers, and practitioners in the field. CIKM 2013, which will be held in San Francisco, CA will attract the best graduate students, researchers, and practitioners from academic and industrial institutions in the Bay Area, and offer unparalleled opportunities for recruiting top talent.

We now encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly interactive workshops (either full-day or half-day) focusing on either in-depth analysis or broad-ranging approaches to information retrieval, databases, and knowledge management. Those workshops will complement the main CIKM 2013 conference. The workshops will be held one day before and one day after the main CIKM 2013 conference, i.e. October 28 (Monday), and November 1, 2013 (Friday).

Submission Guidelines

It is highly recommended to use the CIKM 2013 Workshop Proposal Template for your submission. Workshop proposals are reviewed based on the quality of the proposal, its relation to the main CIKM topics, and the likelihood to attract enough participants as well as the hosting capacity of the venue.

Exact workshop paper submission and author notification due dates are at the discretion of workshop organizers but must fit within the time-line indicated above.

Accepted workshop papers will also be published in the CIKM workshop proceedings, which will be printed on CD only and indexed in the ACM Digital Library, together with the main CIKM 2012 proceedings. All the workshop papers should be limited to no more than 10 pages in ACM Conference format. And organizers are not allowed to submit their own papers to their workshops.

Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to either of the workshop chairs ([email protected]).
