CALL FOR PAPERS: 22nd ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management, Oct. 27 Nov. 1, 2013, CA, USA

http://www.cikm2013.org

CIKM 2013 - San Francisco Airport Marriot Waterfront, Burlingame, CA, USA Sponsored by: ACM SIGIR and SIGWEB

The 22nd ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2013) will be 
held from October 27 to November 1, 2013 in San Francisco Airport Marriott Waterfront, Burlingame, 
California, USA. CIKM is a top-tier ACM conference in the areas of information retrieval, knowledge
management and databases. 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 2013, 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. 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, models and interfaces
Information integration, data provenance, probabilistic databases
Cloud computing, peer-to-peer, parallel and distributed databases
Query processing, optimization and performance

Paper Submissions for CIKM 2013
 
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered 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.
Papers will be handled through the online submission system 
https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/CIKM2013/.
 
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.cikm2013.org.
Each accepted paper is required at least a 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.
For any questions about paper submissions, please contact the program committee co-chairs at 
pc-chair@cikm2013.org.
