CNIKM'09: Call for Participation

The First ACM 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 technological networks, social networks, and
information 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 bring together researchers across both computer
science and the emerging network science to foster discussion and
exchange ideas. Although these two scientific disciplines speak quite
different languages, they certainly can benefit a lot from each other
by sharing their concepts, models, techniques, and tools, etc.

Important Dates

* Early registration due: September 3, 2009 (10:59 EDT(GMT-5))
* Special conference rate for blocked hotel rooms due: October 9, 2009
