SPIRE 2011 - 18th edition of the International Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval



VenuePisa, Italy Italy



Topics/Call fo Papers

SPIRE 2011 is the 18th edition of the International Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval. It will will take place at the National Council of Research campus (“Area della Ricerca del CNR”) in Pisa, Italy, and will be co-organized by the Institute for the Science and Technologies of Information of the Italian National Council of Research (ISTI-CNR), Pisa, and by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Pisa.

The scope of the SPIRE series of symposia includes not only fundamental algorithms in string processing and information retrieval, but also SP and IR techniques as applied to areas such as computational biology, DNA sequencing, and Web mining. Given its interdisciplinary nature, SPIRE offers a unique opportunity for researchers from these different areas to meet and network.

Typical topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

String Processing: Dictionary algorithms, Text searching, Pattern matching, Text and sequence compression, Succinct and compressed indexing, Automata-based string processing;
Biological Sequence Processing: Analysis of DNA and RNA sequencing data, Molecular sequence processing, Recognition of genes and regulatory elements, Comparative genomics and population genetics;
Information Retrieval: Information retrieval models, Indexing, Ranking and filtering, Interface design for IR, Evaluation issues in IR, Text analysis, Text mining, Text classi fication and clustering, Information extraction, Language models and topic models for search related-tasks, Efficient implementation of IR systems, Algorithms and data structures for IR;
Search-related tasks: Cross-lingual information retrieval, Multimedia / multi-modal information retrieval, Recommendation and collaborative filtering, Semi-structured data retrieval, Blog retrieval.
SPIRE 2011 will feature

A full day of tutorials (October 17, 2011): if you are interested in submitting a tutorial proposal, see the tutorial submission page;
A three-days’ technical program of invited and submitted papers (October 18-20, 2011): if you are interested in submitting a paper, see the paper submission page;
A full day of workshops (October 21, 2011): if you are interested in submitting a workshop proposal, see the workshop submission page.
SPIRE 2011 is the 18th edition of the Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval. The event has been held under this title annually since 1998. The four first events concentrated mainly on string processing (SP) and were held in South America under the title South American Workshop on String Processing (WSP) in 1993, 1995, 1996, and 1997. WSP was transformed into SPIRE in 1998 when the scope of the event was broadened to include also information retrieval (IR). The change was motivated by the increasing relevance of information retrieval and its close inter-relationship with the general area of string processing. From 1999 to 2007, the venue of SPIRE has been alternating between South / Latin America (odd years) and Europe (even years). This pattern was broken when SPIRE 2008 was held in Melbourne, Australia, but it was probably restarted in 2009 (even) when the venue was Saariselkä, Finland. In 2010 SPIRE took place in Los Cabos, Mexico.
