Keywords need to be selected from a single area: DB or IR or KM; Industry does not have keywords (i.e., please do not select keywords from multiple areas).

The deadline for submitting manuscripts is Tuesday, June 03, 2008 (Closed), at 23h59m59s, Hawaii time, (GMT - 10 hours ). Late submissions will **not** be accepted. The website is already open and accepting submissions.

Submissions should be aligned with the topics identified in the Call for Papers and must be in English. Submissions should be original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered for publication in any other forum.

Please ensure that your submission does not exceed 10 pages in length and is formatted using the ACM templates: using the "Option 2" style. This is also the style that will be required for final papers. Papers must be submitted as pdf files.

To submit a paper, go to the CIKM 2008 submission site. You'll need to create an account to submit your paper. If you are already registered as a reviewer for CIKM 2008, then you can submit your paper through this account.

Only papers submitted via the conference system will be considered for review.

Authors will be notified by July 15, 2008 of the outcome of the review process. Camera ready copies of accepted papers will be due August 15, 2008.

One author per paper is required to register and attend the conference to present the paper if accepted for publication.
