Data Sharing

We release organized CFP data every year, free for academic and research purpose. A sample xml file looks like this. Now, we have CFP data of 2008 and 2009 ready for release, with 5480 records in total. Please send us an email, if you are interested.

This data set will be useful in natural language processing, data mining and machine learning, as far as what we can see. In fact, WikiCFP data have already been employed by various research groups. The following is just an incomplete list. We hope the release of organized data will promote related research. Please let us you know if you find WikiCFP useful in your research.
