Call for Tutorials

CIKM 2014 encourages submissions of tutorial proposals on all topics about information and knowledge management. Tutorials on the current topics of interests as found in the CIKM 2014 Call for Papers are especially encouraged, but tutorials on other topics are also considered. 

Proposals will be considered for half-day and full-day tutorials. Tutorials should present fundamentals about a frontier topic as well as recent advances such that all participants, including new students and senior researchers, can be interested. Particularly, we encourage the consideration of new topics that have less overlapped with CIKM 2013 . Tutorials are going to be scheduled on either Nov 3, 2014 or Nov 7, 2014.
