The goal of this workshop is to encourage Ph.D. students to present
their dissertation research at a relatively early stage. The targeted
students are those with a focus in any of the ACM CIKM research
tracks, i.e., databases, information retrieval, or knowledge
management. Interdisciplinary work across the three tracks is
particularly encouraged. This workshop will enable graduate students
to present their dissertation proposals and/or ongoing research on
their dissertation sub-problems. It will give them an opportunity to
get feedback on their early work from researchers worldwide.
Accepted papers will be published in ACM CIKM Workshops
proceedings which is published on the same CD as the ACM CIKM
proceedings and online in the ACM Digital Library. The students of the
accepted papers will give a talk on their dissertation in the
workshop. This will give considerable recognition to their work.
There will be an award for the best paper presented at the workshop.
In addition to the papers selected for oral presentation, there will
be a few more papers selected for poster presentation at the workshop.
All papers will appear in the workshop proceedings. A short journal
article summarizing the contents of the workshop is likely to be
published in the following year.


A wide range of topics on any area in databases, information retrieval
and knowledge management can be presented at this workshop. The areas
of interest are similar to those at the ACM CIKM 2011 main conference
and can be found on the conference website
Papers should be maximum 8 pages in length in ACM CIKM format. The
Ph.D. student should be the first author on the paper. The student's
Ph.D. advisor, committee members and others may be co-authors. Please
note that at least one author of each accepted paper is required to
register for the PIKM workshop.
