                  Final Call for Papers

      CIKM 2017: The 26th ACM International Conference
          on Information and Knowledge Management

             6 - 10 November 2017, Singapore


The Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) provides a
unique venue for industry and academia to present and discuss
state-of-the-art research on search and discovery, data mining and
database systems, all at a single conference. CIKM¹17 comes to Singapore
on Nov 6-10, 2017, with the theme of Smart Cities, Smart Nations.  Lying
at the intersection of databases, information retrieval and knowledge
management, CIKM is uniquely placed to highlight technologies and insights
that materialize the ³Smart Cities, Smart Nations² vision shared by many
urban areas and their countries.

Topics of Interest

We encourage submissions of high quality research papers on all topics in
the general areas of databases, information retrieval, and knowledge
management. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the
following areas:
    * Data and information acquisition and preprocessing (e.g., data
crawling, IoT data, data quality, data privacy)
    * Integration and aggregation (e.g., semantic processing, data
provenance, data warehousing, privacy and security, modelling)
    * Infrastructures (e.g., cloud computing, data intensive computing,
database systems, indexing and compression, search engine architectures)
    * Special data processing (e.g., multilingual text, stream,
spatiotemporal, multimedia, scientific,  & social media data)
    * Integration of knowledge structures (e.g., natural language
processing, speech recognition, computer vision, exploiting external
    * Analysis (e.g., OLAP, data mining, machine learning, scalable
analysis algorithms, event detection and tracking, deep neural networks)
    * Information access and retrieval (e.g., ad hoc and web search,
question answering and dialogue systems, retrieval models, query
processing, personalization, recommender and filtering systems)
    * Data presentation (e.g., visualization, summarization, readability,
VR, speech output)
    * Users and interfaces for information and data systems (e.g., user
behavior analysis, user interface design, personalization, interactive
analysis, mobile computing, spoken interfaces)
    * Crowd sourcing and exploitation of online resources
    * Evaluation (e.g., online and offline evaluation, study of best
    * Applications (e.g., urban systems, biomedical and health
informatics, security, business intelligence, crisis informatics,
computational social science, data-enabled discovery, social media,
recall-oriented search)

Paper Submissions

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished full-length and short
research papers that are not previously published, accepted to be
published, or being considered for publication in any other forum.
Full-length papers should satisfy the standard requirements of top-tier
international research conferences. Short papers should describe
interesting ongoing work, new discoveries and insights, or summaries of
significant projects, and be material that is suited to poster

Manuscripts should be submitted to CIKM¹17¹s Easychair site in PDF format,
using the ACM camera-ready templates. Full papers cannot exceed 10 pages
and short papers cannot exceed 4 pages. Rejected full papers will not be
considered for publication as short papers. Paper review will be
double-blind, and submissions not properly anonymized may be rejected
without review. At least one author of each accepted paper must present
the work as scheduled in the conference program, which may include both
oral presentation and poster sessions.
