October 17-21, 2022
Hybrid Conference, Hosted in Atlanta, Georgia, USA
The 31st ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) provides an international forum for presentation and discussion of research on information and knowledge management, as well as recent advances on data and knowledge bases. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development of future knowledge and information systems, and to shape future directions of research by soliciting and reviewing high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. An important part of the conference is the Workshops program which focuses on timely research challenges and initiatives. CIKM has a strong tradition of workshops devoted to emerging areas of database management, IR, and related fields.
The program features five keynotes, twelve compelling workshops and seven tutorials that highlight the breadth of interesting problems being explored in the fields of Information and Knowledge management.
SIGWEB has just launched a YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/c/ACMSIGWEB. Among others, this channel will feature recordings of keynotes from SIGWEB sponsored and co-sponsored conferences. Currently, you can watch the TheWebConf 2022 keynotes given by Jaime Teevan, Virginia Dignum and Prabhakar Raghavan, as well as the ACM UMAP 2021 keynotes by Helen Nissenbaum, Maarten de Rijke and Julita Vassileva. Enjoy and do not forget to subscribe to our channel for future updates.
The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems & Technology (TIST) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC. TIST was established in 2010 and has been experiencing steady growth, with 355 submissions received in 2020.
Nominations, including self nominations, are invited for a three-year term as TIST EiC, beginning on July 1, 2021. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support.
Appointed by the ACM Publications Board, Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of ACM journals are delegated full responsibility for the editorial management of the journal consistent with the journal's charter and general ACM policies. The Board relies on EiCs to ensure that the content of the journal is of high quality and that the editorial review process is both timely and fair. He/she has final say on acceptance of papers, size of the Editorial Board, and appointment of Associate Editors. A complete list of responsibilities is found in the ACM Volunteer Editors Position Descriptions. Additional information can be found in the following documents:
Nominations should include a vita along with a brief statement of why the nominee should be considered. Self-nominations are encouraged, and should include a statement of the candidate's vision for the future development of TIST. The deadline for submitting nominations is May 20, 2021, although nominations will continue to be accepted until the position is filled. Please send all nominations to the nominating committee chair, V.S. Subrahmanian (
The 21st ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2021) seeks original research papers that focus on the design, implementation, development, management, use and evaluation of advanced systems where document and document collections play a key role. DocEng emphasizes innovative approaches to document engineering technology, use of documents and document collections in real world applications, novel principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and productively use these. In particular, DocEng 2021 seeks contributions in the area of collaborative work with documents. You are invited to submit original papers to DocEng 2021, to be held in Limerick, Ireland. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and applications.

Accepted articles will be published in the DocEng 2021 proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the DocEng audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous work.
Submissions should be prepared using the ACM format. Guidelines are availables at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template
Papers can be submitted online at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=doceng2021
DocEng is a single-track conference attended by a community of academic and industrial researchers. It will be preceded by one day of workshops and tutorials. Relevant Topics We seek original contributions that are mainly focused on, but not necessarily limited to, the following topics:
* Pure document image or document content analysis papers are not out of scope but authors should clarify how the contribution relates to document engineering technology, use of documents or document collections
WSDM (pronounced "wisdom") is one of the premier conferences on web-inspired research involving search and data mining. Our original plan was to meet at Jerusalem, Israel, however, given the circumstances of the COVID19 pandemic, the conference will be held virtually, between March 8-12, 2021. We would like to invite you to join this exciting event. Please register through the conference web-site.
Deadline for early registration: Feb. 10, 2021
The highlights of the WSDM 2021 program are summarized as below.
Prof. Yoav Shoham (Stanford and AI21 Labs): Some thoughts on Computational Natural Language in the 21st century
Prof. Sue Dumais (MS Research): Beyond Web Search: How Email Search is Different and Why it Matters
Prof Eran Segal (Weizmann Ins.): Harnessing Big Data for Personalized Medicine
The regular registration package includes all the technical presentations (keynotes, paper presentations, posters, tutorials, workshops, industry-day, doctoral consortium).
