The Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM), founded in 1992, is a key calendar event each year for the international academic, business and government communities for presentation and discussion of research on information retrieval, data science and knowledge management.

The theme for CIKM in 2020, which takes place online from the 19th to the 23rd October, is

Data and knowledge for the next generation: sustainability, transparency and fairness.

The conference seeks 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. An important part of the conference is the Workshops and Tutorial programme which focuses on timely research challenges and initiatives – and bringing together research papers, industry speakers and keynote speakers. The program also showcases posters, demonstrations, competitions, and other special events.

Sponsoring CIKM 2020

CIKM 2020 will be a unique opportunity to show-case your company or organisation to hundreds of data scientists, AI practitioners and postgraduate students from around the world. For the first time in its history, the CIKM conference will be held online, creating a unique channel to reach a global, targeted audience of future customers, partners and collaborators.

CIKM would not exist without the support of sponsoring organisations and companies. Participants also see it as an opportunity to meet representatives from innovative companies and organisations who are engaging with AI and data science. Supporting CIKM starts with a basic package (the Bronze Package, see below) giving you wide visibility to participants. You will have a richer opportunity to deliver your message to participants with the Silver Package, and to introduce yourself, through the activities and opportunities that exist within your company, with the Gold Package.

The AnalytiCup is an annual competition co-located with CIKM driven by real problems from real companies. This is an opportunity set up a task to be solved by some of the best researchers in AI and Data Science today.

If you are interested in supporting CIKM through tailor-made or more creative sponsoring options, please get in touch to discuss opportunities.
