We hope to see you ONLINE at 19-23 October 2020 for the 29th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM2020).


The Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), founded in 1992, is a key calendar event each year for the international academic, business and government communities for presentation and discussion of research on information retrieval, data science and knowledge management.

The theme for CIKM in 2020 is Data and knowledge for the next generation: sustainability, transparency and fairness.

The conference seeks 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 and Tutorial programs which focuses on timely research challenges and initiatives – and bringing together research papers, industry speakers and keynote speakers. The program also showcases posters, demonstrations, competitions, and other special events.
