Venue: University of Birmingham - Birmingham, UK

The Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) provides an international forum for the presentation and discussion of research on information and knowledge management, as well as recent advances in data and knowledge bases. The purpose of the conference is 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.

CIKM 2023 solicits proposals for both half and full-day tutorials from active and experienced researchers and practitioners covering topics relevant to CIKM. Areas of interest include information retrieval, knowledge management, data science, artificial intelligence, and other related areas of relevance to the CIKM community. 

We encourage the submission of tutorials that target various levels of expertise and interests. We also welcome the submission of hands-on tutorials, for instance using notebooks that combine theoretical concepts with practical exercises. Each tutorial should cover a specific topic of interest in depth. The goal then is to provide a self-contained overview of a topic, and then connect to state-of-the-art research and developments in the associated area of interest. For example, tutorials may cover an established sub-topic, introduce an emerging application in the area, or update the CIKM community on recent advances in related fields.

Tutorials are expected to be presented in person. Nevertheless, organizers of accepted tutorials are welcome to use ACM’s Zoom license to broadcast and record their presentations if they are open to offering their tutorial to in-person and remote attendees; please indicate that in your proposal.

Authors Take Note

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.

Important Dates

All deadlines are at 11:59pm in the Anywhere on Earth time zone.
Tutorial proposal due: June 30, 2023
Tutorials notification: July 26, 2023
Camera-ready due:   August 18, 2023 (Hard date)

Tutorial day: Saturday, October 21, 2023

Submission Details

Each tutorial proposal must include the following information.

  • Title of the tutorial
  • Length (either half-day, i.e., 3 hours plus breaks; or full-day, i.e., 6 hours plus breaks)
  • Whether at least one organizer will be available to present in person.
  • Abstract of up to 150 words.
  • arget audience, prerequisites, and benefits. Proposals must clearly identify the intended audience for the tutorial (e.g., novice users of statistical techniques, versus expert researchers in text mining). What background will be required of the audience? Why is this topic important and interesting to the CIKM community? What is the benefit to participants?
  • Outline of the tutorial. Enough material should be included to provide a sense of both the scope of material to be covered and the depth to which it will be covered. The more details provided, the better (up to and including links to the actual slides). Presenters should not focus exclusively on their own research results – a CIKM tutorial is not meant to be a forum for promoting one’s own research or product.
  •  A list of the most important references that will be covered in the tutorial.
  • A list of forums, dates, and locations where this or a closely related tutorial has been presented before. Please highlight the similarities and differences between previous related tutorials, and the one proposed for CIKM 2023, using up to 150 words for each.
  • A short bio for each presenter, including their expertise related to the tutorial. Please do not exceed 200 words per presenter.
  • (Optional) URLs of the slides/notes of the previous presentations of this tutorial by the current set of authors.
  • Any specific audio, video, or computer requirements for presenting the tutorial.

The length of the whole proposal should be limited to 4 pages in the ACM proceedings template (double column), see

Suitable LaTeX, Word, and Overleaf templates are available from the ACM Website (use the “sigconf” proceedings template).

Please submit your tutorial proposal as a PDF file, choosing the “tutorial track” on the CIKM 2023 online submission system. Submission Link:

 Please note that the organizers of accepted tutorials will be invited to submit a camera-ready summary of the tutorial, to be included in the CIKM 2023 conference proceedings.

Selection Procedure

The submissions will be reviewed by a program committee selected for this purpose, and final decisions will be made by the tutorial chairs.
The selection process will prioritize

  • The ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of CIKM-related research or to broaden the field to look at important new challenges and techniques.
  • The experience and skill of the presenters
  • The value of any materials released with the tutorial for the community.

Tutorial Chairs

  • Sole Pera, TU Delft
  • Joemon M Jose, University of Glasgow
