18th Symposium on String Processing and Information Retrieval
(SPIRE 2011)

Pisa, Italy
October 17--21, 2011

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 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

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 welcomes either long papers (12 pages) or short papers (6-pages).
Submissions must be anonymous and formatted using the Springer LNCS style.
At least three reviewers will evaluate each paper in double-blind mode based
on its originality, quality, methodological robustness, and significance of
theoretical and/or practical contribution. Papers must be in English, must
be unpublished, and must not be under submission at another conference or
journal for the entire duration of the SPIRE 2011 reviewing process.

All papers will be refereed according to the usual scientific standards.
Accepted papers will appear in the Proceedings published by Springer Verlag
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series, which will be distributed
to all delegates at the symposium.

SPIRE 2011 will also feature a full day of tutorials and a full day of
workshops. See if you are interested in
submitting either a tutorial or a workshop proposal.
