2nd Call for Papers

ACM Twentieth Conference on Information and Knowledge Management
CIKM 2011, Glasgow, October 24th-28th, 2011
Sponsored by: ACM SIGIR, SIGWEB
CIKM 2011 will take place in Glasgow, Scotland, UK, 24th-28th October 2011.
Glasgow is Scotland's largest city and one of the most visited cities in
Europe. A cosmopolitan metropolis, Glasgow is a culturally rich, vibrant
city with a long history at the forefront of socio-economic and political
change in Scotland and the UK, offering everything one would expect from a
great British city but with a Scottish flair. CIKM 2011 will host keynote
presentations by Justin Zobel (Melbourne Uni), Maurizio Lenzerini (Sapienza
Uni) and David Karger (MIT).
We encourage submissions of high quality papers on all topics in the general
areas of databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management. Papers
should contain previously unpublished work and not be under submission to
other conferences or journals.
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 areas include, but are not limited to:
* Access methods and indexing
* Authorization, data privacy and security
* Concurrency control and recovery
* Data quality, provenance, adaptability and reusability
* Data exchange, integration, evolution and migration
* Database languages and models (e.g., fuzzy data, probabilistic databases,
meta-data management)
* Domain-specific databases (multi-media, scientific, spatial, temporal,
* Dynamic aspects of databases (updates, views, real-time data, sensor
data, active databases, data streams)
* Mobile, parallel and distributed data management (including cloud
* Novel/advanced applications
* Query processing, optimization and performance
* Semantic Web and ontologies
* Semi-structured data processing, XML filtering and routing
* String databases 
* Systems, platforms, middleware and experiences
* Workflow, Web services and Web Service Composition
Information Retrieval:
* Aggregated search, Enterprise search, Desktop search
* Personalised and collaborative search
* Cross-language retrieval, Multilingual retrieval, Machine translation for
* Distributed IR, Peer to peer IR
* Domain-specific IR: genomic, legal, mobile, patents, ...
* Evaluation, Test collections, Crowdsourcing for IR evaluation
* Foundations of IR: Theory, Formal models
* HCIR, User Interfaces, Interactive IR, User models, User studies
* Language technologies for IR (NLP, IE, Summarization, QA, ...)
* Machine Learning for IR
* Multimedia IR: audio, speech, image, video, and cross-media
* Semi-structured information retrieval, Semantic search
* System Architectures, Scalability and Efficiency
* Web IR and Social media search
* Other topics related to IR (Adverserial IR, Advertising, Privacy,Text
Mining, etc.)
Knowledge Management:
* Advertising and optimization
* Classification and clustering
* Data pre- and post-processing
* Domain-specific and cross-domain knowledge management
* Evaluation measures, methods and frameworks

* Knowledge synthesis and visualization
* Large-scale statistical techniques
* Link and graph Mining
* Mining the usage, consumption and production of resources
* Semantic techniques
* Temporal, Spatial and Ubiquitous Data Mining
* Text Mining
* Web and Social Knowledge Management
Industry Research Track:
* Industrial Practice and Experience
* Technology for Developing Regions
Industry authors are 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.
Important Dates
