Call for Papers

ACM Eighteenth Conference on Information and Knowledge Management
CIKM 2009, Hong Kong, November 2-6, 2009

http://www.comp.polyu.edu.hk/conference/cikm2009/about/

Sponsored by: ACM SIGIR, SIGWEB


THEME: CIKM 2009 (ACM 18th Conference on Information and Knowledge
 Management) will be held on November 2-6, 2009, Hong Kong,
 China. Since 1992, CIKM has successfully brought together leading
 researchers and developers from the database, information retrieval,
 and knowledge management 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 2009, 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
 lim!  ited to:
 
Databases:
  - Data Adaptability, Quality, Reusability and Adaptability
  - Information Integration, Data Provenance, Probabilistic Databases
  - Mobile and Distributed Data Management
  - Query Optimization
  - Security and Data Privacy
  - Semantic Web
  - Streams, Network Databases
  - String Databases, Blogs and Social Search
  - Systems, Platforms, Middleware, Applications and Experiences
  - User Experience (Languages, Models, Interfaces)
  - XML Data Processing, Filtering, Routing, and Algorithms
  - Novel Data Management Tools
  - Data Warehousing and OLAP

Information Retrieval:
  - Citation Analysis, Social Networks for IR
  - Domain-Specific IR (e.g., Legal IR, 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)
  - Machine Learning for IR
  - Multimedia IR (Audio, Speech, Video, Image)
  - Semi-Structured Information Retrieval
  - User Modeling for IR, Search Personalization
  - Web Search, Advertising, Adversarial

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

Industry track:
  - Industrial Practice and Experience
  - Technology for Developing Regions 


Paper Submissions for CIKM 2009 
===============================

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/pubs/proceed/template.html. Papers cannot
exceed 10 pages in length. In addition to the regular full-length
papers, the program committee will accept some as poster papers (two
pages).

Note: Submission procedure is the same for all areas.

Uploading instructions and more detailed submission instructions for
papers, workshop, and tutorial proposals are available at the
conference website (http://www.comp.polyu.edu.hk/conference/cikm2009/about/).

One author per paper is required to register and attend the conference
to present the paper if accepted for publication.


Awards and Journal Special Issues
=================================

A "Best Interdisciplinary Paper" award will be given to the best paper
that bridges at least two of the general areas of interest to the
conference, namely databases, information retrieval, and knowledge
management. A "Best Student Paper" award will be selected among the
papers whose first author is a student. A set of selected papers will
be published as special issues in three SCI indexed journals: Data and
Knowledge Engineering, Knowledge and Information Systems: An
International Journal, The International Journal of Data Mining and
Bioinformatics.


Industrial Papers
=================

Industry authors are also invited to submit papers describing
solutions in the domains addressed by this conference, focusing on the
technical aspects of their work. The submission procedure for
industrial papers is the same as for research papers.


Workshops
=========
Thirteen different workshops will be held with CIKM 2009. Please refer
to http://www.comp.polyu.edu.hk/conference/cikm2009/program/workshops.htm
for the list of the workshops. Please contact CIKM 2009 workshop
chairs Min Song at <min.song [at] njit.edu> and Wook-Shin Han at
<wshan [at] knu.ac.kr>, if you have any questions on the workshops.


Tutorial Proposals
==================

Tutorial proposals should be directly emailed to the Tutorial
co-Chairs, Mike Ng at <mng [at] math.hkbu.edu.hk> and Masatoshi Yoshikawa
at <yoshikawa [at] i.kyoto-u.ac.jp>, by July 15, 2009.


Demo Papers
===========

Demonstration papers cannot exceed 2 pages in length, which describe
system components, implementation techniques, and contributions as
well as interactive demonstration plan. They also have to include URLs
for the web sites of their systems (or the information for verifying
them). Uploading instructions and more detailed submission instruction
for demonstration papers are available at the conference website
(http://www.comp.polyu.edu.hk/conference/cikm2009). For more details,
contact Demo Chairs: "Lei Chen" <leichen [at] cse.ust.hk> and "Jin-Ho Kim"
<jhkim [at] kangwon.ac.kr>.
