The goal of the PIKM workshop is two-fold: First, we want to give doctoral students an opportunity to present their work in an early state to a global audience. This allows the students to receive feedback from reviewers, from fellow students and from the general CIKM audience. Second, we believe that the general research community, too, benefits from such a workshop: PhD theses are the grassroots of research. They point out new exciting new research avenues and provide fresh perspectives from the next generation researchers.
We expect to have an exciting keynote presentation at the conference. Stay tuned for more information!
- Best Paper Award
Your submissions will be eligible for a Best Paper Award. The selection will be made based on the reviews.
- Best Reviewer Award
To encourage helpful and profound reviews, the PIKM also rewards the best reviewer.
- Workshop Report
Workshop reports containing an overview of the individual research projects presented at previous PIKM editions were published in the ACM SIGIR Forum Journal the ACM SIGKDD Explorations, and the ACM SIGMOD Record. It is expected that such a report will also emerge from PIKM 2014, for publication in 2015.
