The 25th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2016) will be held from October 24-28, 2016 in Hyatt Hotel, Indianapolis, United States. The Theme of this year’s CIKM conference is “Frontiers and Applications of Big Data Science”.
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, with the purpose of identifying challenging problems facing the development of advanced knowledge and information systems, and shaping future research directions through the publication of high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. With CIKM 2016, we will continue the tradition of promoting collaboration among multiple areas through broad and interdisciplinary programs for the conference, including workshops, tutorials, industry speakers, keynote speakers, research papers, and posters.
