Sponsorship Opportunities

The 17th ACM International Conference of the Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM) is the premier conference on topics at the confluence of information retrieval, databases, and knowledge management communities. Since 1992, CIKM has successfully brought together leading researchers and developers from the database, information retrieval, and knowledge management communities. The purpose of the conference is to identify challenging problems facing the development of future knowledge and information systems, and to shape future research directions through the publication of high quality, applied and theoretical research findings. In CIKM 2008, we will continue the tradition of promoting collaboration among multiple areas. As CIKM 2008 will be held in Napa Valley, just one hour to the north of San Francisco, one of the goals of the conference is to embrace the innovative spirit of the Bay Area/Silicon Valley in bridging further the academic-commercial gap in the database, information retrieval, and knowledge management communities. Attendees will hear about very recent research results and be able to network with the whos-who (luminaries, researchers, and practitioners) in the field.

Sponsorship Opportunities

CIKM offers a variety of sponsorship opportunities suitable for large as well as small organizations. Sponsors of CIKM gain visibility for their companies, demonstrate their support of critical information retrieval and knowledge management related research and development, and contribute to the success of the conference. Four levels of sponsorship are available depending on the US dollar amount of the contribution: In-kind sponsorships that directly defray the costs of the conference are also welcome, (for example, sponsorship for a student travel scholarship, coffee break, reception, or banquet), in these cases, the sponsor name is prominently displayed.
