Today there were workshops and tutorials at CIKM.
Social Web Search and Mining (SWSM2009)
Web Information and Data Management (WIDM)
Cloud Data Management (CloudDB 2009)
There were also four tutorials.
I'm particularly disappointed to miss Marius Pasca's tutorial on for the acquisition of Open-Domain Concepts and Conceptual Hierarchies.
There's little coverage of the conference so far, but I'll try to link to what I find.
