Call For Papers

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.

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 Papers should contain previously unpublished work and not be under submission to other conferences or journals.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, text)
•Dynamic aspects of databases (updates, views, real-time data, sensor data, active databases, data streams)
•Mobile, parallel and distributed data management (including cloud computing)
•Novel/advanced applications
•Query processing, optimization and performance

•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
