The 32nd ACM International Conference on Information and Knowledge Management (CIKM 2023) is set to take place from October 21 to October 25, 2023, at the University of Birmingham and Eastside Rooms in the UK. CIKM is a premier international conference dedicated to the presentation and discussion of research related to information and knowledge management, along with recent advancements in data and knowledge bases. Renowned for its excellence, CIKM is classified as an A-rated conference and will include 354 research paper presentations this year. Prof. Steffen Staab will serve as a keynote speaker, addressing the audience on "Knowledge Graphs for Knowing More and Knowing for Sure."
Here is the abstract of the talk:
Knowledge graphs have been conceived to collect heterogeneous data and knowledge about large domains, e.g., medical or engineering domains, and to allow versatile access to such collections by means of querying and logical reasoning. A surge of methods has responded to additional requirements in recent years. (i) Knowledge graph embeddings use similarity and analogy of structures to speculatively add to the collected data and knowledge. (ii) Queries with shapes and schema information can be typed to provide certainty about results. We survey both developments and find that the development of techniques happens in disjoint communities that mostly do not understand each other, thus limiting the proper and most versatile use of knowledge graphs.
