CIKM 2014: Call for Research and Poster Papers

November 3-7, 2014, Shanghai, China

The 23rd ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge
Management (CIKM 2014) will be held from Nov 3-7, 2014 in Shanghai, China.
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 qualsity, applied and
theoretical research findings. In CIKM 2014, we will continue the tradition
of promoting collaboration among multiple areas. We encourage submissions of
high quality research papers and posters on all topics in the general areas
of databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest of CIKM2014 include, but are not limited to, the
following areas in three distinct tracks:

Paper Submissions
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers, and
poster papers, that are not being considered for publication in any other
forum. Research papers should satisfy the standard requirements of a usual
top-tier international research conference. Poster papers should describe
interesting ongoing work, new discoveries and insights, or summaries of
significant projects, etc.

Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and formatted
using the ACM camera-ready templates. Research papers cannot exceed 10 pages
in length and poster papers cannot exceed 4 pages in length. Papers should
be submitted through the CIKM 2014 online submission system, which is also
the online review system for the conference.

CIKM 2014 research and poster paper review takes the double-blind format,
and therefore, papers must be properly anonymized (improper anonymization
may be a ground for rejection without review). Papers are to be submitted to
one of the three tracks (DB, IR, KM). The same program committee of each
track will review both the research papers and the poster papers submitted
into the track. Multiple track submissions are not allowed. There is no
short paper category, and all papers are going to receive an accept or
reject decision (i.e., papers are not going to be moved from one category to

Uploading instructions and more detailed submission instructions for papers,
and workshop/tutorial proposals are to be announced. Please visit the
conference website for more details.

Each accepted research paper requires at least one unique full (non-student)
registration regardless of the status of the registered author(s). Each
poster paper must also have at least one (not necessarily unique) author
registered (student registration allowed for posters). Also, one of the
authors (or a qualified substitute, with qualification judged by the Program
Committee chairs) must give the presentation of the paper at the conference
as arranged in the conference program. Poster paper presentations will be
done in the paper poster format, and the authors are to bring their own
large format paper posters to the conference, while the conference provides
the facility to display the posters. The papers with no shows will not be
indexed by the ACM digital library and will be pulled out from the published
proceedings if possible.

For any questions about paper submission, please contact the program
committee track chairs.
