CNIKM'09: Call For Papers

The 1st International Workshop on Complex Networks in Information &
Knowledge Management (CNIKM)
in conjunction with ACM CIKM-2009
Hong Kong, November 6, 2009


We are in a connected age: real-world entities often interconnect with
each other through explicit or implicit relationships to form a
complex network, such as information networks, social networks,
economic networks, technological networks, and biological networks.
They exhibit interesting statistical characteristics such as
small-world and scale-free. The past decade has witnessed an explosive
growth of research on various complex networks. How can we analyse,
manage and mine information in large-scale complex networks
effectively and efficiently? This gives researchers in database,
information retrieval and knowledge management great challenges as
well as opportunities. In line with CIKM's tradition of promoting
interdisciplinary research, this workshop aims to have a major impact
on future research by bringing together researchers across both
computer science and the emerging scientific discipline of network
science to foster discussion and exchange ideas.


The complex networks of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Information Networks (incl. Networks of Queries and Documents)
- Social Networks (incl. Networks of Social Media)
- Economic Networks
- Technological Networks
- Biological Networks

The research problems of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Structure and Dynamics of Complex Networks
- Formation and Generation of Complex Networks
- Community Detection in Complex Networks
- Motif Discovery in Complex Networks
- Link Prediction in Complex Networks
- Communication and Contagion on Complex Networks
- Indexing and Ranking in Complex Networks
- Decentralised Search in Complex Networks
- Clustering and Classification in Complex Networks
- Semi-Supervised Learning and Active Learning on Complex Networks
- Visualization and Summarization of Complex Networks

Both theoretical and practical research papers are welcome,
particularly those addressing computational or algorithmic issues.

Important Dates

- Paper submission due: July 20, 2009 (23:59:59 GMT)
- Notification of acceptance: August 10, 2009
- Camera-ready version due: August 15, 2009 (hard deadline for publication)
- Early registration due: August 15, 2009
- Workshop date: November 6, 2009


All submissions should be in ACM conference style and PDF format.
Full papers may not exceed 8 pages; short papers may not exceed 4
pages. No extra pages can be purchased. All submissions must be
original and unpublished before. The review process will be
double-blind: authors should conceal their identity in their

All submissions should be made through EasyChair.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed by PC members. The organisers
will examine the reviews and make final paper selections for the


At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the
workshop. Registration must be done at the time when the author sends
the camera-ready copy of the accepted paper to the workshop chair.
Workshop registration fee is determined by CIKM.


The workshop proceedings will be printed on CD together with the main
CIKM-2009 conference proceedings by ACM.

An edited book on this topic has been proposed by the organisers in
Wiley's Web Data Mining Series. Extended versions of selected papers
are expected to be published in that book.

A blog has been created to facilitate informal discussion online
before and after the workshop.

A short workshop report will be written by the organisers for a
professional newsletter (e.g., SIGIR Forum and BCS-IRSG Informer).

Workshop Programme

It is anticipated to be a full-day workshop with two keynote addresses
(TBA) and two refereed research paper sessions. The detailed programme
will be released once it is finalised.
