Call for Tutorials

It is the goal of the CIKM 2010 Tutorial Program to offer conference attendees and local participants a stimulating and informative selection of tutorials reflecting current topics in databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management. These tutorials will be presented by subject matter experts and will reflect the high academic and research standards of the CIKM 2010 conference.
