CALL FOR PAPERS: International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management , Oct. 29 Nov. 2, 2012, Sheraton, Maui, HAWAII

http://www.cikm2012.org

CIKM-2012

The 21st ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2012) will be 
held from October 29 to November 2, 2012 in Maui, Hawaii, USA. CIKM is a top-tier ACM conference 
in the areas of information retrieval, knowledge management and database. Since 1992, it has 
successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from the three communities. 
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 high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. In CIKM 2012, we will 
continue the tradition of promoting collaboration among multiple areas. We encourage submissions 
of high quality papers on all topics in the general areas of databases, information retrieval, 
and knowledge management. Papers that bridge across these areas are of special interest and will 
be considered for a "Best Interdisciplinary Paper" award. Topics of interest in the three tracks 
include, but are not limited to:

 

Databases

       Access methods and indexing

       Authorization, data privacy and security

       Concurrency control and recovery

       Data adaptability, reusability and quality

       Database languages and models

       Information integration, data provenance, probabilistic databases

       Mobile databases and distributed data management

       Peer-to-peer, parallel and distributed databases

       Query processing, optimization and performance

       Real-time and active databases

       Scientific and biological databases

       Semantic Web

       Semi-structured data processing, XML filtering and routing

       Stream-based processing and network databases

       String databases, blogs and social search

       Systems, middleware, applications and experiences

       Temporal, spatial and multimedia databases

       User experience: languages, models, interfaces

 

Information Retrieval

       Citation Analysis, Social Networks for IR

       Distributed IR, Peer-to-Peer Search

       Domain-specific IR (e.g., Legal, Genome, Mobile IR, IR for chemical structures)

       Filtering (e.g., Routing, Collaborative filtering, Topic tracking, Recommender systems)

       Foundation of Information Retrieval (e.g., theory, ranking)

       IR Architectures, Scalability and Efficiency

       IR Evaluation

       Language Specific IR (Multi-lingual, Cross-lingual, NLP, Question and Answer)

       Machine Learning for IR

       Multimedia IR (Audio, Speech, Video, Image)

       Semi-Structured Information Retrieval

       User Modeling for IR, Search Personalization

       User Studies, Interactive Information Retrieval, Interfaces and PIM

       Web Search, Advertising, Adversarial

       Other topics related to IR (Privacy, Spam, Feature Engineering, etc.)

 

Knowledge Management

       Advertising and Optimization

       Classification and Clustering

       Data pre- and post-Processing

       Information Extraction

       Information Filtering and Recommender Systems

       Knowledge Synthesis and Visualization

       Large-scale statistical techniques

       Link and Graph Mining

       Semantic Techniques

       Temporal and Spatial data Mining

       Text Mining

       Biometrics

 

Paper Submissions for CIKM 2012

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered 
for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format 
and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at: 
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates


ACM CIKM review is double-blind. Therefore, please anonymize your submission. Papers cannot 
exceed 10 pages in length. There is no short paper track. The organizers may offer the authors of 
selected paper submissions to prepare a shorter version of their paper for presentation. Uploading 
instructions and more detailed submission instructions for papers, and workshop proposals, are 
available at the conference website http://www.cikm2012.org 

Each accepted paper requires at least one full registration fee regardless of the status of the 
registered author. Also, one of the authors (or a qualified substitute) must give a presentation 
of the paper at the conference. Otherwise, the paper will not be indexed by the ACM digital 
library.
