CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: Conference on Information and Knowledge Management , Oct. 29-Nov. 2, 2012, Maui, HAWAII

Proposals are solicited for one-day workshops to be held as part of the CIKM conference 
(Oct. 29-Nov. 2, 2012, Topics should be in the general areas of 
databases, information retrieval, and/or knowledge management. Indeed, workshops bridging these 
areas, or presenting new perspectives in these areas are particularly welcome. A full list of 
current topics of interest can be found in the CIKM general

Proposal Submission

CIKM workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more 
focused way than the conference itself. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the 
organizers, but it is expected that workshops will contain ample time for general discussion and 
engagement by all participants - not just those presenting papers. Workshops that foster 
interaction, discussion, collaboration, and group problem-solving are especially encouraged.

The organizers of approved workshops are expected to define the workshop's focus, gather and 
review submissions, and decide upon final program content. Organizers (including co-organizers) 
are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide an article for dissemination (e.g. 
SIGIR Forum, KDD Explorations) summarizing the event.

Workshop proposals should be submitted in PDF by email to the CIKM 2012 Workshop Chairs: Alin 
Dobra ( and Dimitrios Gunopulos ( by April 9, 2012.

It is highly recommended to use the CIKM 2012 Workshop Proposal Template for your submission:
