  • Description
  • In order to bridge the gap between research and real-world applications, this year at CIKM 2019 we are excited to call for two types of tutorial proposals:
  • Conventional Tutorials
  • Hands-on Tutorials
  • Conventional tutorials (Full-day and Half-day) are aimed primarily at the research community and will take place after the main conference. Attendees of the conventional tutorials pay a separate registration fee to cover the facility costs.
    Hands-on tutorials (Full-day and Half-day) on topics of interest to practitioners will take place during the main conference; these tutorials will be selected by invitation only and will be open to all attendees free of charge, space permitting.
  • Topics of Interest
  • CIKM 2019 will host tutorials covering topics mainly in information and knowledge management that are of interest to the research community as well as application developers. Ideally, a tutorial will cover the state-of-the-art research, development and applications on a specific topic in the general areas of databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management.
    We solicit proposals for both half- and full-day tutorials from active researchers and experienced tutors. CIKM 2019 rewards each accepted tutorial with one free registration for the main conference, plus $1000 as an honorarium.
  • Tutorial Proposal Content
  • Each proposal must include the following details:
  • Title of tutorial.
  • Length (either Half-day, i.e., 3 hours plus breaks; or Full-day, i.e., 6 hours plus breaks).
  • Abstract of up to 150 words
  • Tutors (name, affiliation, email, address, phone).
    1. List of in-person presenters, i.e., tutors who will attend CIKM and present part of the tutorial.
    2. List of contributors, i.e., tutors who will only help prepare the tutorial material.
  • Target audience, prerequisites, and benefits. Proposals must clearly identify the intended audience for the tutorial (e.g., novice users of statistical techniques, versus expert researchers in text mining). What background will be required of the audience? Why is this topic important and interesting to the CIKM community? What is the benefit to participants?
  • Outline of the tutorial. Enough material should be included to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. The more details that can be provided, the better (up to and including links to the actual slides).
          Presenters should not focus exclusively on their own research results – a CIKM tutorial is not meant to be a forum for promoting one’s own research or product.
  • A list of the most important references that will be covered in the tutorial.
  • A list of forums, dates, and locations where this or a closely related tutorial has been presented before. Please highlight the similarities and differences between each previous tutorial and the one proposed for CIKM 2019, using up to 150 words for each.
  • A short bio for each presenter, including their expertise related to the tutorial. Please do not exceed 200 words per presenter.
  • Any specific audio, video, or computer requirements for presenting the tutorial.
  • (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous presentations of this material by the current set of authors.
  • Submission
  • Proposals should be received by Saturday, July 20, 2019. Please submit proposals for both conventional and hands-on tutorials to cikm2019.tutorial@gmail.com.
    All above deadlines are based on the Anywhere on Earth time.
