Call For Papers: CIKM 2007, Lisboa, Portugal

[German title: Aufruf für Artikel-Beiträge: CIKM 2007, Lisboa, Portugal]

ACM Sixteenth Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2007), November 5-10, 2007, Lisboa, Portugal
Sponsored by the ACM SIGIR and SIGWEB (Pending Approval)

Submission of abstract: May 14, 2007

Since 1992, the ACM Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) has successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from the database, information retrieval, and knowledge management 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 quality, applied and theoretical research findings. In CIKM 2007, we will continue the tradition of promoting collaboration among multiple areas. We encourage submissions of high quality papers on all topics in the general areas of databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management. 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 tracks include, but are not limited to:

Access methods and indexing
Authorization, privacy and security
Concurrency control and recovery
Database languages and models
Mobile databases and ubiquitous data management
Peer-to-peer, parallel and distributed databases
Query processing, optimization and performance
Real-time and active databases
Scientific and biological databases
Semi-structured data and XML databases
Stream-based processing and sensor databases
Temporal, spatial and multimedia databases

Information Retrieval:
Cross-language and multi-lingual information retrieval
Digital libraries
Document and query representation
Document summarization and question answering
Document tracking, routing, and filtering
Hypertext and hypermedia management
Information retrieval applications (e.g., chemical,
genomic or geographical information)
Information retrieval evaluation, metrics
Information retrieval models and theory
Information visualization and exploration
Interactive retrieval, user models and studies
Interoperability and integration
Metadata extraction and generation
Multi-media and content-based information retrieval, music retrieval
Performance issues in information retrieval
Personalization and personal information management
Question answering
Test collections, experimental design
Text classification and clustering, machine learning
Web and distributed information retrieval

Knowledge Management:
Classification and clustering
Data/information extraction and integration
Data mining applications
Explanation and Knowledge Provenance
Frequent itemsets and sequential pattern mining
Knowledge management and synthesis
Link analysis and community discovery
Mining and representing data streams, web content,
structure and usage data
Mining and representing temporal and spatial data
Mining and representing text and semi-structured data
Mining and representing reviews, blogs & discussions
Novel data mining algorithms
Pre-processing, post-processing and visual data mining
Security and privacy issues

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum. Manuscripts should be submitted electronically, in PDF format and formatted using the ACM camera-ready templates available at Papers cannot exceed 10 pages in length. An electronic submission Web site will be available soon. In addition to the regular full-length papers, the program committee will accept some as poster papers. One author per paper is required to register and attend the conference to present the paper if accepted for publication. A “Best Interdisciplinary Paper” award will be given to the best paper that bridges at least two of the general areas of interest to the conference, namely databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management. As in previous years, authors of the best papers will be invited to submit expanded versions for publication in a special issue of a major journal.
Industry authors are also invited to submit papers describing solutions in the domains addressed by this conference, focusing on the technical aspects of their work. The submission procedure for industrial papers is the same as for research papers.

Submission of abstract: May 14, 2007
Notification of acceptance: July 16, 2007
