CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 2021 SIGKDD TEST OF TIME AWARD

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: 2021 SIGKDD TEST OF TIME AWARD


Description

Since SIGKDD 2020, there have been two test of time awards, one for a paper from the research track and a second test of time award for a paper from the applied science track (formerly called the industrial track). The SIGKDD Awards Committee is chartered with selecting one paper from the research track of the SIGKDD Proceedings from 10 to 12 years ago (i.e., from SIGKDD 2009 - 2011) and one paper from the industrial track of the SIGKDD Proceedings from 10 to 15 years ago (i.e., from SIGKDD 2006 - 2011) that has best met the “test of time,” that is, it has had the most influence since its publication. The 2021 awards will be presented at the 26th ACM KDD Conference. http://www.kdd.org/kdd2021/.

Eligibility

All papers from the research tracks of SIGKDD 2009 - 2011 are eligible for the ACM SIGKDD Research Test of Time Award. All papers from the industrial tracks of SIGKDD 2006 - 2011 are eligible for the ACM SIGKDD Applied Science Test of Time Award. Past winning papers are not eligible. Both test of time awards will be chosen by the 2021 SIGKDD Test of Time Awards Committee below. While there is no formal nomination process for this award, but we highly appreciate input from the SIGKDD community. We are especially interested in first-hand accounts of ways in which the ideas of a paper have been used. All such nominations should be sent to johannes@microsoft.com with subject line “SIGKDD 2021: nomination” by May 17.
