CALL FOR SPONSORSHIP

Call for Sponsorship of CIKM 2019

  • Invitation from the CIKM 2019 Chairs
  • The 28th ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) takes place on Nov 3-7, 2019 at Beijing, China. Strategically positioned at the intersection of research on the management of knowledge, information, and data, CIKM is uniquely situated to highlight technologies and insights that materialize the Big Data, Big Information and Big Knowledge vision of the future.
    Since 1992, CIKM has successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from the knowledge management, information retrieval, and database communities. Through the publication, presentation, and discussion of high-quality applied and theoretical research findings, CIKM attendees shape the future by identifying challenging problems facing the creation of advanced knowledge and information systems, and by providing insightful solution approaches for those problems. With CIKM 2019, we will continue the tradition of promoting collaboration among multiple areas through broad and interdisciplinary programs for the conference, including workshops, tutorials, industry speakers, keynote speakers, research papers and posters, demonstrations, competitions, and other special events.
    In CIKM 2019, we expect to attract over 1500 leading researchers from universities, industry, as well as some participation from governmental entities. We will provide rich opportunities to companies according to their interest. Many of our sponsors & exhibitors use CIKM to meet & hire the leading data scientists of our generation. Other companies and many startups use the exhibition booth as a venue to advertise & meet new customers. Most leading book publishers use our conference to advertise and sell the latest books to the largest gathering of data mining researchers.
    We rely on corporate sponsorship to help us keep the registration costs affordable for students and international attendees. We are grateful for your support of our research community. We hope to see you at CIKM 19 in Beijing!
