The 26th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) takes place November 6-10, 2017, at Pan Pacific Singapore. Our theme for 2017 is "Smart Cities, Smart Nations". Strategically positioned at the intersection of research on the management of knowledge, information, and data, CIKM is uniquely situated to highlight technologies and insights that materialize the “Smart Cities, Smart Nations” vision shared by many urban areas and their countries.
Since 1992, CIKM has successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from the knowledge management, information retrieval, and database communities. Through the publication, presentation, and discussion of high-quality applied and theoretical research findings, CIKM attendees shape the future by identifying challenging problems facing the creation of advanced knowledge and information systems, and by providing insightful solution approaches for those problems. With CIKM 2017, 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, demonstrations, competitions, and other special events.
