Call for Demonstrations

CIKM 2012 encourages submissions of demonstrations on all topics in the general areas of databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management, especially demonstrations bridging these areas, or presenting new perspectives in these areas.

Demonstration papers cannot exceed 3 pages in length and should feature an interactive system preview. Submissions should highlight either practical lessons or new innovative applications on topics related to databases, information retrieval, and knowledge management. Special emphasis will be placed on multidisciplinary applications that bridge these areas. Selection criteria will include the originality of the application identified, the readiness of the system for interactive demonstration, the novelty of practical insights, and the multidisciplinary nature of the submission. We especially encourage submissions from both academia and industry.
