CIKM 2024: 33rd ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management
Boise, Idaho, USA

October 21–25, 2024


The Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of research on information and knowledge management, as well as recent advances in data and knowledge bases. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development of future knowledge and information systems, and to shape future directions of research by soliciting and reviewing high-quality, applied and theoretical research findings.

CIKM 2024 solicits proposals for both half and full-day tutorials from active and experienced researchers and practitioners covering topics relevant to CIKM. Areas of interest include information retrieval, knowledge management, data science, artificial intelligence, and other related areas of relevance to the CIKM community.

We invite proposals for tutorials that target various levels of expertise and interests. We also welcome the submission of hands-on tutorials, for instance using notebooks that combine theoretical concepts with practical exercises. We encourage the submission of cutting-edge tutorials that cover advances in newly emerging areas.

Each tutorial should cover a specific topic of interest in depth. The goal is to provide a self-contained overview of a topic, and then connect to state-of-the- art research and developments in the associated area of interest. For example, tutorials may cover an established sub-topic, introduce an emerging application in the area, or update the CIKM community on recent advances in related fields.

Tutorials are expected to be presented in person.

Key Dates
* Tutorials proposal: 14 June 2024
* Tutorials notification: 5 July 2024
* Camera ready: 8 August 2024
* Tutorial day: 21 October 2024 (Monday)
(All deadlines are at 11:59 pm AOE)

Paper Submissions
Each tutorial proposal must include the following information:
* Title of the 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.
* 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 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 previous related tutorials, and the one proposed for CIKM 2023, 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.
* (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous presentations of this tutorial by the current set of authors.
* Any specific audio, video, or computer requirements for presenting the tutorial.

The length of the whole proposal should be limited to 4 pages in the ACM proceedings template (double column). Instructions and suitable LATEX, Microsoft Word, and Overleaf templates are available from the ACM Website (use the “sigconf” proceedings template): ACM Primary Article Template.

Please submit your tutorial proposal as a PDF file, choosing the “tutorial track” on the CIKM 2024 online submission system.

Please note that the organizers of accepted tutorials will be invited to submit a camera-ready summary of the tutorial, to be included in the CIKM 2024 conference proceedings.

Selection Procedure
The selection process will prioritize:
* The ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of CIKM-related research or to broaden the field to look at important new challenges and techniques.
* Likely audience interest
* The experience and skill of the presenters
* The value of any materials released with the tutorial for the community.

ACAIN 2024: AI meets Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Science

The ACAIN 2024 is an interdisciplinary event featuring leading scientists from AI and Neuroscience, providing a special opportunity to learn about cutting-edge research in the fields of AI, Neuroscience, Neuroscience-Inspired AI, Human-Level AI, and Cognitive Science.

The 4th  Advanced Course on Artificial Intelligence  & Neuroscience (ACAIN) is a full-immersion four-day  Course and Symposium in Tuscany on cutting-edge advances in Artificial Intelligence and Neuroscience with lectures delivered by world-renowned experts. The Course provides a stimulating environment for academics, early career researchers, Post-Docs, PhD students and industry leaders. Participants will also have the chance to present their results with oral talks or posters, and to interact with their colleagues, in a convivial and productive environment.

Two days of keynote talks and oral presentations, the ACAIN Symposium, (September 24-25), will be preceded by lectures of leading scientists, the ACAIN Course, (September 22-23).

Bringing together AI and neuroscience promises to yield benefits for both fields. The future impact and progress in both AI and Neuroscience will strongly depend on continuous synergy, exchange, collaboration and efficient cooperation between the two research communities.  These are the goals of the International Course and Symposium - ACAIN 2024, which is aimed both  at AI experts with interests in Neuroscience and at neuroscientists with an interest in AI.  ACAIN 2024 accepts rigorous research that promotes and fosters multidisciplinary interactions between artificial intelligence and neuroscience.

The Advanced Course is suited  for scholars, academics, early career researchers, Post-Docs, PhD students and industry leaders.

The Event (Course and Symposium) will involve a total of 36-40 hours of lectures.
Academically, this will be equivalent to 8 ECTS points for the PhD Students and
the Master Students attending the Event.
