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

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:
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
Semi-structured data processing, XML filtering and routing
Stream-based processing, real-time and network databases
String databases, blogs and social search
Systems, middleware, applications and experiences
