AND - Fourth Workshop on Analytics for Noisy Unstructured Text Data

Noisy Text is ubiquitous in real world situations - transcribed calls, document images, web logs, chat logs, tweets, microblogs, facebook posts, email exchanges and so on. This workshop is aimed to bring together industrial and academic researchers working towards handling such noisy text for Information Extraction (IE), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Information Retrieval (IR), Knowledge Management (KM) and other similar applications.

CloudDB - The Second International Workshop on Cloud Data Management

This workshop is dedicated to address the challenges in managing large collections of data, and identifying information of value in such data to business, science, government, and society. The huge size of data poses big challenges on the infrastructure for information storage and management which can achieve economical scaling to more than Petabyte, massively parallel query execution, and facilities for analytical processing. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in cloud computing and data-intensive system design, programming, parallel algorithms, data management, scientific applications, and information-based applications to maximize performance, minimize cost and improve the scale of their endeavours.

PIKM - Workshop for Ph.D. Students in Information and Knowledge Management

This workshop is for doctoral students conducting research in one or more of the areas at CIKM, i.e., databases, information retrieval and knowledge management. Papers submitted to this workshop should consist of dissertation proposals of Ph.D. students or sub-problems of their dissertation, and should include a proposed solution with preliminary evaluation. Interdisciplinary works across the 3 CIKM tracks is particularly encouraged.
